Paris Fashion Week Coverage LASKARIS Fall/Winter 2017/18 Couture Collection - Prism

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

The PRISM is the key that opens the door to the collection of the Greek designer Laskaris. A journey to a surreal world, where the dream is omnipresent, the act of creation is spontaneous, and paradoxically anchored in the present.

His couture collection for autumn-winter 2017-2018 is an experience: you are welcome to follow the light, its sublime anamorphous, its multiple facets, which are, according to the designer, the meaning of life.

The main colors are black, red, white, and gold. The materials are noble and powerful: linen, cashmere. and leather. The enamels in the collection are hand-molded in his atelier in Athens.

The purity of the lines symbolizes the different roads that each of us must choose throughout our lives, the trajectories that are personal to us. It is the past that gives us the means to move towards the future.

The collection is strongly influenced by Laskaris’ love and passion for Greek culture. From the soul of Chirico and Engonópoulos, Laskaris extracted hope and vital force.

“My work is only a reflection of what I think, I feel, I try and I realize... Knowing how to see a situation with the eyes of the spirit is the best way to see it with the greatest objectivity possible. To see means to conceive, and that is the true nature of thought.” 

And, above all, PRISM is a celebration of light, the one that composes a painting, in opposition to obscurantism, that dwells a soul...

A flawless piece of clothing in terms of technical adequacy was not his main issue. Laskaris was always fond of simple lines. To him, impressive means simple and authentic. And he is so authentic he decided to use only his first name: Laskaris.

After finishing his traineeship in Athens, he moved to Paris to master the draping / moulage technique, and to study visual arts.

 

After having worked with the most prominent fashion houses, he returned to Greece and presented his first personal collection. For more than 30 years, singers, actresses, politicians, and socialites have chosen his creations.

 

At the same time, Laskaris becomes inextricably linked with Art as he becomes the costume designer for theatrical plays and acts.

 

His Couture creations and accessories are known for his skillful needlework. Laskaris really enjoys using clothes as a canvas. Artwork has always been a challenge for him, as he always incorporates an element of his beloved Art to his creations.

It was not by chance that at the 400th anniversary of El Greco’s death, he designed a titular collection presented abroad, being inspired by the details of Doménikos Theotokópoulos’ masterpieces.

Laskaris is inspired by the structures and the schematic particularities of painting, sculpture, and architecture. He conceives the light as a form of waves and artfully captures it through his creations. As the designer believes: “Everything begins from and ends to Light, our inner Light.”
