Princess Astrid & Prince Lorenz - Current Events part 2

Here is a new thread to continue discussions on Astrid and Lorenz!

Hannelore posted an interesting article on Astrid's support of Belgian designers during fashion week in Paris (not sure my translation is quite correct!) and I will re-post it here for further discussion! :)

Article that Hannelore originally posted:

Mode
Prinses Astrid looft Belgische ontwerpers op Parijse Modeweek

Glitter, rijk borduurwerk en kleur enerzijds en zwart anderzijds: het modebeeld dat deze week in Parijs gebracht wordt, steekt vol contrasten. Tijdens het defilé van Dries Van Noten kon ook prinses Astrid dat vaststellen.

Prinses Astrid was voor het eerst - incognito - aanwezig op het defilé van Dries Van Noten. De hele dag al had ze samen met haar stijlconsultant de sfeer van de modeweek van Parijs opgesnoven en daar had ze duidelijk van genoten. Van Noten wou ze absoluut niet missen. Alles wou ze weten over de Belgische ontwerper: hoe lang hij bezig was, waar hij woonde, hoe zijn carrière totnogtoe verlopen is en wat er tijdens zo'n modeweek allemaal gebeurt.

De prinses, die al een zilverkleurige jas van Van Noten kocht in Brussel, was in de wolken over de collectie: ,,Ik vind ze mooi en heel vrouwelijk, vooral de mantels vallen erg in mijn smaak. Ik ben trots op onze Belgische ontwerpers.'' Na het defilé ging ze Dries Van Noten persoonlijk feliciteren.

Voor Branquinho kon de prinses jammer genoeg niet blijven, ze moest haar trein halen.

Branquinho: de essentie in het zwart

De collectie van Van Noten, gebaseerd op kleur en rijk bewerkte stoffen, met borduurwerk en glans, stond haaks op die van Veronique Branquinho, die helemaal voor zwart ging. Geen prints of detail in kleur te bespeuren. ,,Ik had zin om alles te herleiden tot de essentie: de snit," zei Branquinho na de show. ,,Ik wou de vormen en details voor zich laten spreken, zonder dat kleuren en motieven met de aandacht gaan lopen.''

,,Ik werk altijd vanuit de buik, ik denk niet in termen van seventies , eighties of andere invloeden, trends gaan aan mij voorbij. Ik doe mijn eigen ding, wat niet belet dat de tijdsgeest ook aanwezig is in mijn werk.''

,,Ik denk niet dat het een risico inhoudt om een collectie in één kleur te brengen, integendeel, op die manier breng je een heel duidelijk beeld. Ondanks het feit dat deze collectie sober lijkt, is ze één van de meest arbeidsintensieve die ik ooit gebracht heb. De snit is heel doordacht en zit ingewikkelder in elkaar dan je zou denken. Ik ben blij met het resultaat."

Olivier Theyskens: poëtisch en vrouwelijk

Twee jaar geleden tekende de jonge Belg Olivier Theyskens zijn eerste collectie voor Rochas. Ondertussen heeft hij zijn draai gevonden in dit Franse huis en zet hij een heel samenhangende collectie neer die poëtisch, romantisch en heel vrouwelijk is zonder overladen te zijn. De modellen leken bijna te zweven in hun jurken met lange sleep die geïnspireerd waren op negentiende-eeuwse modellen. Er waren ook kortere, draagbare exemplaren maar het accent lag op droomjurken voor vrouwen met een droombudget. Naar verluidt loopt de collectie als een trein in Amerika en Japan.

Translation (finally :))

PRINCESS ASTRID PRAISES BELGIAN DESIGNERS AT THE PARIS FASHIONWEEK

Glitter, rich embroidery and on the one hand color, on the other black: the fashion that Paris brings us this week is full of contrast. During the defile of Dries Van Noten princess Astrid could tell for herself.

It was the first time Astrid was present -incognito- at a defile of Dries Van Noten. Together with her styleadvisor she had been getting used to the atmosphere of the Paris fashionweek all day long and she was clearly enjoying it. She absolutely didn't want to miss out on Van Noten. She wanted to know everything about the designer: how long he's been in business, where he lives, how his career has evolved, and all about the things that go on during a fashion week.

The princess, who has already bought a silver colored coat of Van Noten in Brussels was delighted about the collection: "I think she's beautiful and very feminite, I'm especially fond of the coats. I'm proud of our Belgian designers". After the defile she went to congratulate Dries Van Noten personally.

Unfortunately the princess couldn't make the defile of Veronique Branquinho because she had to catch her train.

Branquinho: the essence in black

The collection of Van Noten, based upon colors and rich fabrics, with embroidery and glow, was in contrast to the one of Veronique Branquinho, who focussed totally on black. No prints or colored details in sight. "I wanted to reduce everything to the essence: the cut" Branquinho said after the show. "I wanted the forms and details to speak for themselves, without having colors and motifs that draw the attention".

"I always work instinctively, I never think in terms of seventies, eighties or other influences, trends pass me by. I do my own thing, which doesn't stop the 'spirit of time' from being present in my work."

"I don't think it's a risk to have a collection in one color, on the contrary, that way you give a sharp image. despite the fact that this collection seems very sober, it's one of the most labour-intensive ones I've ever produced. The cut is very well thought over and is more complicated than you would tell at first glance. I'm glad with the result."

Olivier Theyskens: poetic and feminite

Two years ago young Belgian Olivier Theyskens drew his first collection for Rochas. In the meanwhile he's found his place in the French couturehouse and he presents a coherent collection that's poetic, romantic and very feminite without being overloaded. The models nearly seemed to float in their dresses with a long train, inspired on 19th century models. There were also shorter and more wearable pieces, but the dreamgowns for women with a dreambudget were especially emphasized. Apparently his collection is top of the bill in America and Japan.
