The #PacoRabanne show was an eclectic mix of medieval glamour and flea market chill, full of friends and family walking the glittering catwalk 🎷 The most memorable looks of the event were reclamations of archival styles, heavily embellished chain dresses with silver and gold metal work dancing about, complete with matching medieval headwear 🎷 Slip dresses and casual tops were decorated with intricate lace and accents of shimmering chainmail 🎷 A consistent print developed here was a rich leopard prints over sharp tailored coats and dainty skirts 🎷 The mood at @pacorabanne was central towards personal style in the way that Parisian women express their femininity within everyday life 🎷

“There is a saying in the Islands. Beware the women of the warrior class, for all they touch is both decorative and deadly.” - @tamorapierce

The second image from the first shoot with the Armored Dress. This one shows off a bit more of the plating and detail, as well as my medieval visor themed mask. :)

A huge THANK YOU to my amazing roommate and assistant on this shoot Hanna V for all her help, as well as to fashion icons like Versace who were a huge inspiration behind this piece.

Stay safe all! ❤️

“The officials of Mons had promised to protect Jacqueline, but once Gloucester was gone, she was handed over to the Duke of Burgundy and imprisoned in Ghent. In the same year her uncle, John of Bavaria, died and her lands were handed over to Burgundy, as regent, by John of Brabant. Jacqueline escaped her imprisonment, dressed as a man, and escaped escorted by 2 knights, to Gouda. From Gouda, she led the Dutch resistance to the Burgundian takeover. However, when Burgundy besieged Gouda, she was forced to surrender”

Houppelande

A houppelande or houpelande is an outer garment, with a long, full body and flaring sleeves, that was worn by both men and women in Europe in the late Middle Ages. Sometimes the houppelande was lined with fur. The garment was later worn by professional classes, and has remained in Western civilization as the familiar academic and legal robes of today.

The houppelande appeared around 1360 and was to remain fashionable well into the next century. It had its origins in the herigaut, a similar 13th-century garment with hanging sleeves. The edges of the houppelande were often dagged, or cut into decorative patterns such as scallops, “embattled” tabs or even leaf shapes.
