Charles Anastase's eccentric heroine is at the heart of every collection. Her hair is messy-mad, this time in dishevelled and fringed wigs, she wears round glasses and her style borders on Granny-chic. Alexa Chung, a long time supporter, sat front row and Parisian model and stylist Valentine Fillol-Cordier is creative consultant. The label's style credentials are cemented in stone.
Anastase has been championing the 3/4 length for a couple of seasons and now the rest of the industry has caught up. This is the key length for spring summer 2011. Everything from black silk cigarette pants to pencil dresses and gauze tube shifts followed the new rule.
But unlike previous season, this collection was styled supremely simply. No layering and fuss here. Each look existed as one dress with tights and the sky-high platforms that he is known for. Transparent blouses and trousers, fitted jumpsuits and multi-corsage dresses each came as you found them.
