Dévastée showed a casual monochrome line at Paris Fashion Week this morning.
The label – formed by Ophélie Kière and François Alary – showed a Spring/Summer 13 runway which was black and white-heavy, with baseball caps making an appearance throughout.
Models strutted down the catwalk in oversized T-shirts dresses, shirts, blazers and shorts, creating a casual feel.
Teamed with black and white caps, the headwear – which also featured tulle detailing – cemented the laid-back theme.
Despite Dévastée’s simple pieces, the label included some eye-catching prints on their designs.
On one over-sized dress, French writing was emblazoned on the front, while horizontal black and white stripes featured on a range of separates. One intricately patterned dress featured a landscape with a withered tree the focal point of the design.
Dévastée weren’t afraid to cause drama with their clashing prints. One model wore a grey logo T-shirt which was teamed with busy black and white patterned pants.
The duo explained their inspiration for the line ahead of their catwalk show.
“Our S/S 2013 collection is not really incarnated by anyone. Our work was focused on landscape imagery. We were interested in how geometry and abstract ideas can affect our perception of landscapes. For our runway, we have therefore created a very specific woman illustrating this idea,” they said.
Models’ beauty looks were kept natural, with flawless bases and a slick of red lipstick that added the only hint of colour to runway proceedings.
For those few not wearing caps, hair was kept tied back in low ponytails, separated into centre partings.
Also showing at the coveted Fashion event today are Dries Van Noten, Gareth Pugh and Mugler. Presenting their latest collections tomorrow are Balenciaga, Balmain, Lanvin and Rick Owens among others. – COVER MEDIA
