How do you balance masculine and feminine, tailoring vs. draping and black vs. white? In two words: Talbot Runhof. For Fall/Winter 2011, German design duo Johnny Talbot and Adrian Runhof was inspired by Noel Coward's "Mad About the Boy" song about unrequited love for a film star. The moody song played as models walked the runway with utmost sophistication at the recent show in Paris. Juxtaposing elements came into play as menswear-inspired pieces walked the runway alongside glamorous femininity. Sharp tailored silhouettes were softened with fluid fabrications and serious shirt dresses were transformed into sexy secretary looks. Think tongue-in-cheek attitude with shirt in reverse, a button-up back and sleeves tied at the waist. There were luxe furs, sheer fabrics, rich brocades and plenty of sparkle - think jeweled tops and sexy chic dresses. Gowns had an old Hollywood grandeur updated in bold colorful stripes and modern appeal. Here are some of my shots of the collection captured front row from Paris Fashion Week.
