LARA QUINT LES FLEURS DU MAL FW16/17
Lara Quint presents its FW16/17 collection called Les Flueurs Du Mal or “The Flowers of Evil”.
The collection is inspired by the poems of Charles Baudelaire who draws a line between life and death in his poems. It revolves around the idea of a flower that seems to be in a state of catharsis: a bright, blinding flash, the craving for the sun, the intoxicating scent.
Strict designs coupled with laconic knitwear find harmony through the magic touch of Lara Quint long coats, trouser suits, and woollen overalls matched with knee-high boots and rubberized fabric gloves are a complementary combination of rough male and delicate feminine aesthetics. A chrysanthemum flower is the collection’s central motif, making its way through stitches, petals entwining chests and waists, and returning to the soil as dew drops trickling down the stalks of our hands.
