Georges Hobeika Fall/Winter 2019-2020 Couture collection
July 11, 2019
Guided by a profound love of fauna and flora, Maison GEORGES HOBEIKA’s Fall/Winter 2019-20 Haute Couture collection pays tribute to wild majesty sent soaring on the bright and flamboyantly colored feathers of the bird of paradise. Celebrated for its extraordinary dance that crowns a captivating, seductive, and passionate courtship ritual, the bird and its signature aerial grace is vibrantly echoed in the imagination of Georges Hobeika and his newest couture collection.
Inspired by the heavenly rhythm of this aerial love parade, silhouettes make flourish on their delicate embroidery the silky reflections of a plumage with perennial hues. They find a charming echo in the sensual curves of radiant corollas dotted with embroidery. Some floating feathers punctuate the shoulders or busts to better evoke the elevated elegance of winged creatures. Finally, sumptuous pleats of a delicate fabric shape the iridescent reliefs of wings wide spread.
To better represent Creation’s mysteries, exquisite patterns recall the secrets of flowering and the mastery of nature’s perfection. These patterns thrive on subtle transparencies that reinforce fireworks of color that seem to capture the regenerative power of the sun, the supernatural reflections of a purple night, or the tender energy of the twilight.
This poetic evocation of nature’s miracles unfolds on masks embroidered with multicolored crystals, on shoes used as beds for blooming silk organza flowers, or on unique bags accentuated with painted feathers. This stunning collection reveals a virtuoso of the Haute couture craft, as its designs exalt the magic of flight, the universal joy of dance, and the power of freedom.
