The fact that the Boreet Palace will recover in the autumn of 2018 under the creative leadership of a Beijing-born designer Yin Ching Yin shows that the fashion world is still clinging to the past. Full House belongs to another era. Paul Poiret peaked in the pre-war decade. Although his house remained floating in the late 1920s, it never really matched exactly when boys showed a boyish modern silhouette in jazz.
Poiret, known as the king of fashion, knows the peaks and valleys. He was penniless and alone, his history of handicrafts, perfumes and studios lost. For historians and collectors, Poiret is reminiscent of a long time ago a world of color, fantasy and wild luxury. (In 1911, the designer famously threw a sumptuous 1200-night clothing party.) Blow is a big man with self and ambition. He is said to translate Barrett Rose’s color, energy and exoticism into fashion.
He works with artists from all media. He volunteered to use legal channels to stop plagiarism. Porett is thought to liberate women from the wholesale corsets; but he is also responsible for h skirt skirts. His work is a manifestation of modernity, as defined in his time, but his work is not as modern as his colleague, Coco Chanel. Her folds and unique jerseys skimmed the wearer’s mover; in a sense, they were lazy for the speed of creating a poignant aesthetic that was more in line with the fictional harem.
So what’s the name Poiret resonating outside the auction room and museum today? (Even before the Garment Institute held the Poiret show in 2007, the designer’s creations set a record for fashion sales.) Perhaps not, this may be the point. For Millennials, Poiret will become a new brand, not a new, old brand, which is free to play with the fabulous cache, fashion and (dusty) reviews of Paris, with or without the use of . To complicate matters, Poiret’s fascination with exoticism may now be considered cultural encroachment.
The writer can not imagine the recent brand reboot has extended to history. Harvey Weinstein’s attempt to revitalize Charles James, whose success was greatest in the middle of the last century, was long gone after his allegations of sexual assault.
As for Yin’s qualifications, she has exhibited her collocation designs at recent fashion shows, some of which have been twisted by Iris van Herpen. It is not yet known exactly which scale her job should be evaluated as few are familiar with the work she has done to date. In his day, Brett was rightly called “Le Magnifique”. For insiders, at least this brand has a historical burden. Yin standing under the shadow of a king, to bring the brand of light, life and relevance will need teamwork. To be courageous, she deserves applause.
