Martin Grant Ready To Wear Spring Summer 2014 Paris

Sculptural and voluminous silhouettes, as well as sleek, second-skin outfits made Martin Grant's Spring 2014 presentation today. And it was a rather dark spring season for Grant, if you consider the exclusive use of black, ivory white and burgundy for his new collection.

“An exceptional encounter between women's swimwear from the 30's and Russian ballet dancers,” noted the press release. You could indeed tell, that Grant drew his inspiration from both mentioned aesthetics – one quick look at a monokini, belted, and adorned with a silky scarf, as well as a couture-ish, voluminous cloche dress, would confirm it.

Another focus, was set on the argyle pattern, its graphic shapes adorned the sumptuous, pleated tutus, or bustiers, of dresses; or came as shapely adornments on shoulders. We bet his loyal clientele, including his muse, Cate Blanchett, would look stunning in such designs.

However, it was quiet sad to see these beautiful gowns in such a static posture. Grant's sophisticated cloche dresses would have looked lovely on a gracious model, or – as previously mentioned – on a ballet dancer. Too bad the collection had to be presented on mannequins.
