One of the most iconic and interesting artists of the new wave of high fashion in the world, Guo Pei, like some years ago, concludes the Paris Fashion Week proposing collections that are authentic style exercises absolutely unique in their kind for the expressionist verve that characterizes them.
Nothing is left to chance in what is literally a fashion "show", a show of lights and colors that dazzles with its unusual beauty. Everything is surprising and difficult to categorize in a precise style because Guo Pei is out of the box, free from the cages of fashions, trends and all that in Paris is classified as haute couture.
Every classicism is banned. Here a sublime stylistic virtuosity and the desire to surprise showing the world garments with unusual cuts and silhouettes yet so visually seductive, are an authentic must, as well as the stylistic code of a fashion designer who has been able to modernize the concept of Chinese High Fashion bringing it to touch paroxysm vertices that are pure anthropology of fashion. It is from her that Chinese high fashion will have to start one day to tell the beautiful story, as France does with Coco Chanel.
Guo Pei in her new Haute Couture spring/summer 2019 collection is absolutely pyrotechnics: on the catwalk are creations with experimental shapes and bold and avant-garde design that does not disdain to reinterpret the great classics with verve and vivacity, exalting them with fine fabrics in which precious nuances degrade with sublime charm in each other. The theme of the Dragon, symbol of China, peeps in the most sumptuous clothes both as decoration and as a relief motif on dream fabrics. Long dresses and cocktail dresses are an authentic show of shapes, cuts and bright colors, as well as accessories, and in particular, shoes, authentic sculptures with sumptuously carved heels.
