For his fall collection titled “Rue de Rome” after the Paris streets are famous for its instrument makers, Arturo Obegero said he imagined an orchestra led by Serge Lutens, the French creative and perfumer commanded with photography he discovered in 1996″ The Book on the Coffee Table by L’Esprit Serge Lutens.
He feels a kinship between the surreal images, which he describes as presenting “something so erotic, so perverted but [at the same time] super classic, elegant and supremely refined” and the dark romanticism he conveys with his own work.
Presented in the 3537 cultural center’s screening room with a live string quartet, Obegero’s silhouette retains the dramatic seam he sought out, with high-waisted trousers – for all genders – to be worn. partially open buttons; a denim bodice flows into the tailcoat, and a top made of a cloud of organza and lace rolls around the bodice.
The necklines have had strong cropping lines, showing off the chest strategically decorated with lace applications, in keeping with the Lutens aesthetic and the Obegero sensuality.
This isn’t a costume wardrobe, though, even if you can imagine a sexist performer performing Obegero’s work even on stage. Once they were out of the candlelit room, these precise shadows were probably not for the daffodils but distilled in an existing wardrobe, their precise sewing feeling like it was meant to be. Looking forward to dressing well for the day.
