An Haute Couture collection with a decidedly real look the one by Georges Hobeika for the next spring/summer 2019. All thanks to an initial inspiration that saw the legendary Marie Antoinette as her muse. On the most famous of the French queens that so much continues to tickle the collective imagination with all sorts of history and legend that have been born around her controversial yet so fascinating figure over the centuries, novels, films, works of art have been created.
Therefore, why not dedicate a high fashion collection that certainly takes the La from a muse so extraordinary and then gradually detach from it to make it more contemporary, almost a perfect queen of fashion today. On the catwalk, therefore, we are presenting clothes that are a tribute to femininity tout court, between plays of material and chromatic overlapping, sparkling decorations, and a skilful use of precious fabrics that are able to give life, thanks to masterful tailoring and modeling, to masterpieces with sophisticated style.
Bon ton yet sensual, ladylike but with a strong and decisive appeal: the woman of George Hobeika is perhaps idealistically from the Château de Versailles, but she is a woman who lives on oxymoron and these very intimate contradictions make her irresistible. Just like Marie Antoinette, a queen whose final story is still to be written because each of us has her own version to tell about her, but the fact that we have it means above all that she is a historical person that has marked our culture. Here, on the catwalk from Georges Hobeika a contemporary and cutting-edge Marie Antoinette that does not give up the grandeur and is dressed in romantic floral patterns, cascades of ruffles and multicolored glitter fabrics. Hobeika crowns her queen of his heart and us with him. Forever.
