The Notre-Dame cathedral or the basilica of the Sacré-Coeur, GuoPei was inspired by the hotspots of the capital for this Paris Fashion Week. This Wednesday, July 4th, at the City of Architecture and Heritage, the Chinese designer has unveiled her new collection called “Architecture”. An echo of the curves and features that characterize Western-style structures.
It has reproduced the windows and columns of religious buildings, but also the singularity of the towers of several castles. Patterns that she accompanied with black and cream color. Tones that raise the depth of infrastructure. The body of the mannequins then appear as the foundations of these constructions.
GuoPei likes to play with the materials, shapes and textures that make sense, even a story. Through her creations, she transmits her cultural heritage while taking inspiration from contemporary and Western innovations. Her sculptural pieces consist of different embroidery and other bright details.
