Givenchy Pre-Fall 2019 / voguerunway.com
Another Pre-Fall 2019 lookbook that is very aesthetically pleasing. Givenchy with the lead of Clare Waight Keller has been so far very interesting, although this collection is, as usually the pre-collections are, highly commercial. But everything is forgiven, when the location is my favorite architectural spot in Paris, Maison La Roche, and the looks have been put together by Suzanne Koller. Also I’m trendspotting some half and half color blocking as seen above and at Calvin Klein 205W39NYC.
When I visited the studio apartment of Le Corbusier, I stopped by also at Maison La Roche, a house designed by Le Corbusier located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. I’m very into the old LC2 Armchairs that are soft and a bit “exploded”. Also as I maybe already mentioned, there’s something very inspiring on how Le Corbusier used and mixed colors.
Modern architecture is not the first thing that comes in mind when thinking about Paris and it’s Haussmann buildings. However, there are couple of gems worth visiting.
Maison Louis Carré, designed by Finnish Alvar Aalto is located 45 minutes outside of Paris and open for visitors every weekend. French art dealer Louis Carré was first considering Le Corbusier to design his new home but was not so convinced by his “colder” style such as use of beton.
Maison La Roche, designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret is located in the 16th arrondissement of Paris. It was designed for a Swiss banker and art collector Raoul La Roche.
