Stéphane Rolland Couture Fall 2011 by Rachel Walgrove

Ford’s Anais Mali and Kate King featured for the Stéphane Rolland fall 2011 couture collection by Stéphane Rolland on Tuesday at the Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris.

Reflective of his A/W 2011-2012 couture collection is Rolland’s inspiration from Caoshu, or 草书, a Chinese ancestral calligraphy. The writing style derivative is apparent of looks that embody both piquant structure and liquidity. Where history and culture play paramount roles in contributing to the conception of a collection, nothing holds reign like that of a timeless muse. Who other than the iconic Carmen Dell’Orefice to inspire a couture collection infused with elegantly striking pieces that create such graceful silhouettes.

“What inspired this collection was an eternal grace, an alluring attitude, a formidable presence, that of the great Carmen Dell’Orefice. As a muse, she is statuesque and appears as a long and mysterious figure, just like a stroke of black ink topped with a white cloud.” Stéphane Rolland
