Spring 2015 Haute Couture: Julien Fournié’s Exotic Journeys



Julien Fournié took a journey into the exotic lands of Northern Africa, presenting a collection of long, fluid silhouettes that recalled sunny deserts and a whiff of the orient. For Spring/Summer 2015, the couturier offered plenty of day wear options, ranging from an elegantly belted chocolate-colored jumpsuit, to a burgundy pencil skirt paired with a button-up blouse, and floaty floor-length shirts worn over fitted trousers. Two stunning hooded dresses stood out, giving his models a regal look.

Arabic calligraphy featured prominently on shrunken cardigans, while floor-length skirts were worn low on the hip with a crop top; as did several hand-painted prints, some of which looked like they had been spray-painted.

Colors ranged across various hues of brown, accented by turquoise that was further enhanced by chuncky ethnic coral-like jewelry.
