Gyunel Ltd today announced that Gyunel Couture presented its Spring/Summer 2018 collection yesterday at the Ritz Paris, place Vendôme’s celebrated landmark, during Haute Couture week. The event was attended by French talent including singer Joyce Jonathan, TV presenter Laurie Cholewa, actresses Alix Bénézech and Julie Ferrier.
Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s « The Wild Swans », as well as art deco interiors and jewelry, Gyunel’s latest couture collection for Spring/Summer 2018 combines geometric panels with feather embroidery and innovative feather-slashed leathers in a surrealist context. Gyunel’s signature diamond cut silhouette in grisaille, as well as a contrasting palette of mint, red, black and rose gold, combined with ombre brushmarks, work together with her painted gargoyles coming to life through this collection that tells the story of a symbolic swan through the lens of nihilism. Drawing additional inspiration from Russian ballet and its famed prima ballerinas, it all fuses together in a perfect harmony that highlights the couturier’s continuous creativity.
