|For the Fall Winter 2020-2021 Haute Couture Collection, Georges Chakra gathers inspiration from the legacy of matriarchs and ancestors, the heirloom of pride, courage and strength carried on by the contemporary woman. Exceptionally launched out of the headquarters in Beirut, the collection was developed on the sidelines of Paris Couture Week, maturing at its own pace and savoring its process. The collection features timeless elegance in simple volumes and primal colors. Black, white, red, purple, gold, with touches of anthracite, and greige.
The color palette is reminiscent of eras of prosperity and artistic expression. Elements of lamé and iridescence magnify the opulence that illuminates the collection. Created with resources from the House archives, the pieces in the collection are adorned with fabrics of lace, velour de soie, silk organza, and gazar. Pleats, ruffles, fans, and flames animate the gowns to move like light changing with time. Opaque meets with a glimmer of translucence creating a striking optical play. The bust is highlighted; the cuts hug the body. The silhouette, this season, accentuates the contours of the back. There is strength in the pronounced collars and defined epaulettes, and subtlety in the fluidity of the capes and fabrics. This collection affirms the promise that Georges Chakra has previously made, and embraces the complexity of the current situation. Looking with a steady gaze towards a raw future with a rediscovered sense of gratitude and faith in a perpetual path of finding perfection in an imperfect world.
