About A Girl - Maxime Simoens Fall 10

Something has happened during last Paris fashion week, the return of the young french designers. Well, in fact it's more like the return of interest towards young french designers, but only the result counts, and I'll keep the polemics aside (for now). Amongst this very limited group of promising designers ( that includes Anthony Vaccarello, Nicolas Andreas Taralis and still Charles Anastase ) is Maxime Simeons, french born and educated in the pure french tradition of the couture craftsmanship, and has been working in the best big house's studio before launching his eponymous label last season. Now for his second season, Simoens wanted to retrace the history of the woman's emancipation through fashion. No more corset, maybe a hint of it is left, the waist goes down, the neckline goes deeper, the skirts and dresses shorter.
It's for a woman who conquers and probably wins that Simoens created this collection with the dresses cut around a cross, like a medieval crusader's flag turned into a modern and urban city soldier, but if there is also some officers coat silhouettes, it is always declined with a touch of feminine and sexy evanescence, as Simoens dream girl is a strong but glamorous up-to-date amazon.
