Take a look at Louis Gabriel Nouchi Spring/Summer 2019 backstage, photographed by Louise Reinke during Paris Fashion Week, in exclusive for Fucking Young!

The SS19 collection is inspired by Yukio Mishima’s book «The Temple of The Golden Pavilion». The story of a monk, so obsessed by the beauty of this temple that he burned it down; a true story from the 2nd world war. This book makes the reader reflect on the notion of beauty in a world in crisis.

The loose cuts reminiscent of the kimonos, enveloping the body to reveal the sensuality of the space between the skin and the fabric becomes a zone of mysterious, sublimated by the movement. Gold silks, precious and delicate, are counterbalanced by aggressive treatments on denim or Jersey materials, such as Bleaching or overdyed fabric. A selection of activewear, made in collaboration with Damart combines sensitivity and functionality. Offering a contemporary wardrobe, highlighting the relationship between the body and sportswear. The print motives of large flowers, placed randomly, exacerbate a dramatic beauty, like a shroud, which make us face the daily violence of the world around us.
