Eva Minge Couture Spring-summer 2011 Photos: P. Stable
The extravagant Polish Eva Minge, renowned businesswoman and fantasy heroine, was discovered recently on the Parisian couture scene. She offers us this season dresses that incite desire. On the mythical theme Drakula with a K, she revisits with moods, images and inspirations of his own universe, the masterpeice of F. F. Coppola.
It offers a provocative and sexy “hot” couture that transgresses and disrupts the usual codes while respecting luxury and know-how, traditional values. Sensual, she flirts with the codes of elegance without ever falling into the excessive or caricature, with a play on libertine cuts. Her collection is imbued with Glam’Rock Barock and resurrects legendary mysteries.
Her passion is tulle in profusion in all its forms (Blister, stretch knit, frilly, flounces and frills, sequined or embroidered), treated alone or in mixtures of noble fabric such as silk, crepe, jersey and charmeuse, orcontemporary techniques which allow the coating and the stretch body sculpting. The collection plays duotone, duality and contrast, literature and song of the body with black (ink, charcoal, graphite) into dullness or brightnesses and red blood obviously. Embroidery sparkling graphite crystal and jet in clotting carnelian and ruby rhinestones.
Last but not least, a final climax that finds life through virginity with tulle alabaster.
Vampiric Druidesses, spectral ladies of darkness, evanescent heroines, Eva Minge revived new goddesses to contemporary womanhood.
