Through a very dramatic allure the FILLES A PAPA Fall/Winter 2016 collection exudes a deeply strong attitude, brightened by sparkling sequins and embroideries. The Belgian trio draws a daring woman mixing punk elements with a tough rock inspiration for an unconventional chicness, ruled by definitely eye-catching garments: it’s like the daily and often sporty wardrobe has been updated meeting the edgy outfits of a rockstar.
The biker jacket tinged in scarlet red becomes fluffy with exaggerated faux fur sleeves covered by big white stars, creating an upsetting contrast next to the classicism of a pinstriped suit with destroyed hems. The denim jacket gets totally embroidered through untamable bicolored flames paired to a zebra-printed mini skirt for a bold rock’n’roll result or becomes, in a longer version, a sexy dress thanks to a lurex make-over. The iconic FILLES A PAPA shirt in maxi vichy pattern is oversized and covered by guiding stars in golden sequins, thus adding to the punk flannel a girly touch. Evergreen garments are totally reinvented in this fall-winter 2016 collection as for the essential grey sweatshirt with a mountain inspired lacing detail on the sleeves or the “Perfecto” with a contrasting red layer and an oversized cut. Even a grunge echo can be heard with the mohair striped sweater proposed beside the fishnet lace with dragon motif skinny pants, basic black beanie and sequined half-gloves.
