Latex Resurrections by Avellano

Shall the Matrix saga ever see a new sequel, the costume design team will have half the work done, for Avellano’s latest collection may well be that making Trinity’s wardrobe. This Autumn-Winter 24/25 season, the French designer demonstrates once again his mastery of the unusual material that made him famous, that is, latex.

The Fashion Show was opened by Avellano’s muse, Noah Cyrus, who had the honour of unveiling the collection’s novelties: bomber jackets (the very first ones for Avellano) and the olive-green shades that would contrast a predominantly black colour palette. When something works, it’s better to stick with it. Avellano seems to know the premise, as his signature pieces, such as the long coats and mermaid dresses, made the core of the collection, revisited in a more street-style vein. These sensual and fluid pieces are chaperoned by the imposing volumes of some new creations, such as puffer jackets.

Spectacular and strong, this is the Avellano woman, who emerges from the smoky garage where the Fashion Show was held. The determined gait of the models contrasted with the gentle soundtrack – courtesy of Noah Cyrus herself – exposing the true force marking the show’s tempo: the sounds produced by the oscillating latex.

The icing on the cake was the designer’s appearance, hand-in-hand with his muse, who returned to the stage draped in a wedding gown whose vertiginous train took our breath away. Among the celebrities in attendance were Marie Papillon, Aime Simone, Pascal K Douglas, Maeva Giani Marshall, Yvesmark Chery, Naomi Sharon, Yvonne Victoria and Patricia Bright.
