PFW: Hakaan

By: Tamara Arnew
Young Turkish design house Hakaan’s collection was the one we have been holding our breath for over the course of Paris Fashion Week. With much ado surrounding his previous season’s cancelled show there was a comeback element to Fall 2013 that demanded tailoring, futurism and aggression beyond what we have seen from his experimental portfolio. 

The look was as black and white as you can get: body conscious and architectural as a series of highly constructed hourglass evening gowns, peplums and trousers. The sharp edged geometric neckline, power-mesh cutouts and leather approached a Bond girl styled to step out of an Aston Martin which may have been a more subtle effect to the future a la mode.  High-slit satin, ostrich feathers, pieced slip dresses, pointed toe pumps and lipstick red furthered the opulent feel with immoderation. Hakaan, nevertheless, captured luxuriousness and hedonism with allure and female guile from Paris, with love.
