Stéphane Rolland was as much raised by architecture, photography, and sculpture as he was raised by a human family. From a childhood steeped in art, Rolland emerged one of France’s foremost couturiers, with the type of pure, unadulterated aesthetic and advanced notions of structure that sends the well-heeled flocking to the doorstep of his atelier on Avenue George V.

His Spring 2015 Couture show demonstrated precision cutting and tailoring that rendered garments into walking sculptures – with fabrics transformed into upturned, jaunty ruffles, and curving gills adding movement to hemlines. Rolland also triumphed at subtle detail work, working in unexpected touches that made us keen for closer inspection. Long slices were removed from the waist, bodices, and dress backs of many looks, which prompts inquiry into how he was able to make every dress lay so sublimely against the skin. The collection is intimate, flattering, and fluid with smart elements that guide the eye along the form. It’s never been more clear than Rolland’s Spring 2015 couture collection that his designs and architectural structure are sympatico.
