Georges Hobeika recently presented his brilliant and simply unforgettable Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2012-2013 Collection at Paris Fashion Week. Now, before I type anything else, just watch.
Do I really need to say anything at all? Hobeika materializes absolute vision; his gowns are like something out of a magnificent dream. They flow as if part of the air itself; and the jeweled elements, the plunging necklines, the immaculate detailing...it is fashion at that rare moment where the craft itself meets absolution. Every element, every line, every texture; and the palette! Flaming, magenta reds, deep forest greens, lavenders and soft blues; the entire showcase is a pristinely composed masterpiece. From the floral detailing on the lace to the over-sized, billowing neckties that cascade just off the shoulder.
Hobeika is an artisan beyond artisans; he is a magician at the very least.
I can say nothing more than thank you.
