Revillon fw 06.07 Paris
ok i'm really confused. style.com has pics of the revillon hc s/s06 collection and it has pretty prominent models (vlada, heather marks, querelle, diana dondoe just to name a few). and yet it's not in the schedule Mr-Dale posted in the Haute Couture thread............

here's the link:

I think it's Rick Owens' Haute Couture line... But to be honest, I can't tell if it's supposed to be haute anything, much less couture...

it must be because revillon is not actually couture...even though it was shown during couture week...

it's not couture, as far as i know.....
and neither is anne valerie hash...
they are just showing now...
basically to try to stand out from the sea of shows during paris fashion week....

exactly, revillon as far as i know isn´t Haute Couture but they show during couture week to stand out a bit more as softgrey said, is a publicitary technique that yohji yamamoto tried not so long ago too, remeber when he was showing his ready to wear line for fall-winter during spring-summer haute couture 2003, although revillon started showing during couture back in 2000.

although this summer collection is probably suited only to Anna Wintour i do like the color on this ensemble:

here is the wwd review


Quote:
Revillon: That antifashion thing can leap out of control, but this season Rick Owens showed at least as much discretion as daring, resulting in a strong fall collection for Revillon. In fact, it was his deft mix of antifashion belligerence with accessible chic that made it all work. Owens took a rather somber palette of smoky grays, olives and black and lightened it up with his gentle layering of slim but fluid shapes. There were plenty of furs here — and they were real beauties. But with a few exceptions, including a long, lush sable coat, they worked mostly as accents and little cover-ups for his ready-to-wear. The designer opted for washed silk faille for the leanest parkas in town, while asymmetric tunics, long coats and capes came in wool or suede, often side-tied with silk ribbon. These went over skinny pants, leggings or slim skirts, all in the muted monotones Owens loves. But it was his deftness with fur that gave this collection its appeal: sheared, plucked or simple mink; chinchilla or fox cut into elongated collars, and tiny boleros and vests. Owens once had an aversion to all things pretty, but this season he's discovered that a little charm goes a long way.

It makes sense in a way that Revillion show during Couture week, it is sort of like the "couture" of furs.

As for the collection, it's typical Owens. Not bad, not boring, but it doesn't quite reach the point where you could call it totally successful. Owens has been getting a lot of mainstream attention lately. He was in Vogue and now style.com is covering revillon's shows.

agreed..
i'm not in the owens camp but he seems to have come up with another good collection (his menswear earlier this month was also good)
the muted tones are creating a very original minimal mood and his use of fur and 'small pieces' like the boleros, are inspiring.
i find this strong and 'directive'
