Presented during Paris Fashion Week at Tony Ward’s new showroom Avenue Montaigne, the Fall/Winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection showcases a variety of cool looks inspired by glaciers and the icy depths of nature. Featuring sheer ombre capes and crystalline embellishments, these gowns are the perfect getup to sparkle on the red carpet or in a winter wonderland soiree.
“Like a blast of pure freshness, icy watercolors and deep, vibrant tones compliment the richness of fabrics. Macramés, gazar and lace, mixed with one-of-a-kind embroideries, recreate light’s reflection on ice. For this season, the Tony Ward woman has many different faces and leaves a powerful impact; just like melting glaciers’ sharp shattered edges reveal pure waters underneath them. Winding forms embroidered in silk thread and asymmetrical applique shapes imitate these natural wonders, giving depth and originality to the looks. Tony Ward brings us a collection where layering and transparency transcend us into the wondrous natural kingdom, with blue, red, green and silver hues shimmering delicately into graceful silhouettes.”
