HEAL FASHIONLAB is a French label that have made a very successful start last season AW2009 with their sceleton inspired, sculptural, architectural collection.
No wonder that this SS2010 Barcelona Fashion Week, their show was was something everybody were waiting for.
This time the designers Hervé and Alice were inspired by the sea and by the sailors. In this collection we have dresses full of wind as sails, sailor stripes in different shades as watercolors on fabric, sailor caps, ocean blue fabric. We are in the marine world..
The collection is going much more commercial direction then the first one, but clearly continues the style from the AW2009 with the inspiration of sceleton forms. Hervé and Alice manage somehow made their pieces sophisticated and casual at the same time.
Looking at collection Haute-Couture SS2010 Valentino it would be hard not to say that Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli did see Avatar, not only they have seen it but also liked it.
Yes it is very futuristic no doubt about it but my question is: isn't it a little bit too far away from the Valention's spirit?
