About the Collection
The countdown has begun. Planet earth is part of the finite universe and will soon turn off. Julien Fournié is exploring galaxies and astrophysics, searching for a hopeful route, away from cynicism. “First Light” is the title of the autumn-winter 2016-2017 collection by the French couturier, as a contemporary echo to the definition of Paris as City of Lights, as an enlightened perspective on the only value that could transcend space and time: love.
In our three-dimensional space, selfishness rules, darkness, rigidity and blood seem the only possible adornments under a yet infinitely fascinating celestial vault. The architectured rigor of coats is softened by the femininity of fused jewelry pieces conjuring up the signs of times. Gradually, the couturier calls to a fundamentalization of elegance, creating “contoured” pieces around feminine curves, to reveal each body in a new light.
Adornments and embroidery alike play an essential role in this process: sparkling first on an exclusive new brocade to express the radiance of nebulae, they are then screened by a veil of “dark matter”, or can become crimson crystal stalactites in a gravitational design of organic shapes. They end up playing on the repertoire of discretion in shades of “nude” to accentuate body morphing.
