Paris Fashion: Farhad RE Spring Summer 2021 Collection – Ethereal, Exotic, Sensual

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

This is the eternal story of an artist who falls in love with his creation. Reality cannot match this perfection created by his own hands. The work that came out of his imagination meets all his expectations.

 

For days and nights, in full lockdown, Farhad Re cuts the triple organza of silk in a virginal whiteness. The contours appear delicately, and Pygmalion / Farhad applies himself to carving a light, sculptural, architectural silhouette. No less than 500 meters of organza were needed to create the 15 dresses of the collection.

Behind the opacity of the material looms the grace of the woman as seen by Farhad Re and whom he calls Galatea, with skin white as milk, and with whom Pygmalion fell in love.


 

Paris Fashion: Karnit Aharoni Collection – Classic, Sophisticated, Alluring


The purity of renewal, of freedom, of letting go - after all these months of lockdown- is also found in the perfectly mastered and hand-shaped geometric shapes that form each dress.

An invitation to dreamlike escape, but also to transform the lines of the silhouette like this long-chiseled coat, enveloping, comforting, in which we want to snuggle.

Very attached to the very essence of freedom through his personal history - the mother of the artist of Persian origin fled her country to regain the freedom to think and dress as she sees fit -, Farhad revisits the myth of Pygmalion by giving wings to his Galatea to make her discover the world.

A real desire to share this need for the absolute, this quest for the sublime, this inclination to shape in the loved one a soul mate.

Pendant des jours et des nuits, en plein confinement, Farhad Re découpe le triple organza de soie dans une blancheur virginale. Les contours apparaissent délicatement, et Pygmalion/Farhad sapplique à ciseler une silhouette légère, sculpturale, architecturale.

Derrière l’opacité de la matière se profile la grâce de la femme telle que la voit Farhad Re et quil nomme Galatée, à la peau blanche comme le lait, et dont tomba amoureux Pygmalion…

La pureté du renouveau, de la liberté, du lâcher prise - après tous ces mois denfermement - se retrouve également dans les envolées parfaitement maitrisées et façonnées à la main de formes géométriques qui forment chaque robe.

Une invitation à l’évasion onirique, mais aussi à métamorphoser les lignes de la silhouetteà l’instar de ce manteau feuilleté, enveloppant, réconfortant, dans lequel se blottir…

Très attaché à lessence même de la liberté de part son histoire personnelle - la mère de lartiste dorigine perse a fui son pays pour retrouver une liberté de penser et de shabiller comme bon lui semblait -, Farhad revisite le mythe de Pygmalion en donnant des ailes à sa Galatée pour lui faire découvrir le monde.
