Paris Couture Fashion Week has come to an end, and we’re left brimming with inspiration from all the magic we spotted on last week’s runways. Perhaps the most captivating of all? The latest from design duo Galia Lahav and Sharon Sever of Galia Lahav.
Inspired by Juliette Hardy, Brigitte Bardot’s character in the 1956 Roger Vadim film And God Created Woman, the Fall 2019 Haute Couture collection incorporates seaside-inspired tulles with whimsical florals (a motif seen in Sever’s own watercolor works) in the form of gowns, jumpsuits, corset tops, and T-shirt dresses. With the stunning French Riviera as a backdrop, intricate floral beading was seen alongside shocking chartreuse tulle, while sweeping gowns were belted and paired with sunnies for the ultimate effortless French girl twist—carefree and très chic, indeed.
The collection is sensual, yet it isn’t over-the-top sexy. It’s flirtatious and playful. Most of all, it serves to empower its wearer to come into her own; to find her independence and express her inner beauty—the ethos of this collection. And, as always with Galia Lahav, it’s absolutely breathtaking.
Below, check out the full collection—and prepare to be swept away to the French Riviera.
