As Paris couture week rolls on, we thought we’d take a moment to look at a lesser-known entry into the couture-o-verse. That would be On Aura Tout Vu, the French label whose name translates to “You think you’ve seen it all.”
Their offerings this season skew toward the dramatic, the Gaga-rific, the over-the-top and way out there. And the styling at their runway show? Full of cyborg-ish details and outlandish chimeras.
This latest collection was titled “Fishing for Compliments,” and is supposed to read like an underwater scene. Personally, I think it seems more influenced by “Snow White and the Huntsman,” but perhaps I’m missing some obvious connection between the fish scales the collection’s supposed to convey and the armor I interpret.
Either way, it’s all very costume-y and dramatic. Take a look after the jump.
