As if straight from a surreal dream, the INGIE Paris winter 2018 collection is a mix of inspirations, as varied as it is masterful; the spirit of flora and fauna, the play on pleats or the ethereal transparencies. Here, nature and enchantment guide creativity. Gold stands out as an Elysium, alternately bursting through on fluid lamé or as a contrast on pleated lamé, it channels a bold yet implicit femininity that celebrates multifaceted, modern women and their many different traits.
A virtuoso in the art of juxtapositions, INGIE Paris incorporates multiple textural effects with movement, dexterity and structure whilst celebrating shining materials, juxtaposing opacity and transparency, using “moucharabieh” guipure or floral embroidery with sequins. The only tropical note to this winter’s day dream, a graphically interpreted philodendron leaf that adorns a caftan dress, an asymmetrical long skirt or crêpe trouser in ‘all-over’ print.
The pure essence of the female wardrobe, the evening dress, remains at the heart of this collection. Short or extra-long, INGIE Paris uses very couture tricks such as bustiers, split corsets or fitted necklines, accompanied by abundant volumes of fabric, puffed volutes and innovative materials, all play a highly visual game. The look is sculpted, a ruffled micro-pleated strapless gown in shimmering red, captivates with the roundness of its ball shape, a long bustier dress blends blue velvet and blue cobalt plissé froissé with a delicate layer of tulle, embroidered with sequined flowers, whilst a jacquard, sprinkled with gold powder, creates the structure for a long box pleat dress.
INGIE Paris enhances its ultra glamourous contemporary offering with flared concertina pleated trousers, cigarette pants with black and gold pleated effects, as well as a long coat with matching velvet collar in addition to a revamped tuxedo jacket embroidered with sequins. Silhouettes are styled in their entirety. In addition, pumps, ankle boots and high boots with stiletto heels are introduced, enrobed in textures and patterns identical to those of the collection, the yellow gold philodendron leaf adorns a ring, wraps delicately around the wrist or magnifies a neckline.
Essentially relying on three colors, a flamboyant red, cobalt blue and gold; black and blue hues complete the palette showcasing the brilliance of the precious metal.INGIE Paris continues to express its individuality and love for dramatic, uncomplicated fashion that promotes the elegance and seduction of the glamorous, modern women of today.
