Weinsanto Spring Summer 2024 collection fashion show at Paris Fashion Week SS24 (September 25, 2023).
Victor Weinsanto's Spring Summer 2024 collection showcased both his flair for cabaret theatrics and his talent for designing captivating clothing. Beyond the cabaret showmanship, Weinsanto proves himself to be a young designer who understands the art of crafting interesting and stylish garments.
The collection featured an intriguing mix of elements, including fantastic trousers, chic camel coats, and tuxedo jackets exuding an air of confidence. However, Weinsanto's creativity also shone through in the form of extreme corsets that extended above the face or jutted backward like a bustle-cum-train. These theatrical pieces added a touch of whimsy and drama to the runway.
Weinsanto's collection wasn't solely about campy looks; it also incorporated moments of sophisticated urban chic. For instance, a combination of a white shirt and a black skirt evoked the brilliance of Donna Karan during her '90s zenith.
Peacoats made a statement in unconventional colors like papaya, while camel coats and tuxedo jackets featured built-in hoods for a dose of edge. Corset lacing played a role in the collection, appearing as a peekaboo detail on a micro mini skirt or creeping up the lower back on high-waisted pants.
Weinsanto chose the subterranean nightclub Le Bisou as his venue and adorned it with an arch of flowers reminiscent of a wedding backdrop. Models strutted and flaunted their long nails against this unconventional setting.
The collection was aptly titled "A Perfect Day," a tongue-in-cheek reference to the notion that even the most meticulously planned events can be disrupted by nature. Weinsanto recounted the French saying, "Mariage pluvieux, mariage heureux," which translates to "rainy wedding, happy marriage." He shared a memorable experience of a cousin's wedding in Bordeaux that was made all the more special by torrential rain.
The show featured wonky veils on some exits and grand white gowns navigating the narrow aisles, adding a playful touch and hinting at the unpredictable nature of life's perfect moments. In a nod to bridal fashion, "Say Yes to the Dress" should consider dedicating an episode to Victor Weinsanto's captivating designs in Paris.
