Monumental: The Season’s Sharpest Silhouettes

Captured at the Double Hélice in Noisy-le-Grand, the brutalism of Paris architecture mirrors the drama and elegance of the fall collections.

It’s finally time to say goodbye to spaghetti straps and hair-frizzing humidity, and a warm welcome to pumpkin spiced anything-you-can-think-of and thermals. And designers made sure not to leave us with any old knee length parkas this season. Shot by Brigitte Niedermair and styled by V’s Fashion Director Gro Curtis, we see sharp structures paired with Fall/Winter’s even sharper silhouettes. 

Lush enveloping fur coats, coffin-cut trenches, and vaporous swollen dresses, white as powdered sugar, are breathtaking against the grey frigid architecture. “My Inspiration was the merging of the [human] body with architecture. When looking into a pond there was a [striking] reflection of the architecture and this was where I found my [visual inspiration] for the story,” says Neidermair. “I wanted to demonstrate the hidden elegance of these structures.”
