Stéphane Rolland Spring/Summer Couture 2013 Collection

Stéphane Rolland has often said he approaches a dress like a sculpture. For this collection, shown at the Palais de Tokyo contemporary art museum, he sent out monochrome creations with volumes so demonstrative, they appeared to have jumped from sketchbook to runway with scarcely any alterations.

Is that a good thing? It depends on the occasion. Front-row guests like Paz Vega, who has worn Rolland to the Cannes Film Festival, could easily go for one of the siren gowns featuring yards of silk pooled into dramatic fishtail gowns, their skirts attached by a narrow sheer midsection. Judging from the show, these were not the best for walking but great for a photo op.

More structured numbers, like a black trouser suit with stiff ruffles running across both sleeves, were equally camera-ready, though perhaps more user-friendly.stephane-rolland01 stephane-rolland02 stephane-rolland03 stephane-rolland05 stephane-rolland08 stephane-rolland09 stephane-rolland10 stephane-rolland11 stephane-rolland12 stephane-rolland13 stephane-rolland14 stephane-rolland15 stephane-rolland16 stephane-rolland17 stephane-rolland18 stephane-rolland19 stephane-rolland20 stephane-rolland21 stephane-rolland22 stephane-rolland23 stephane-rolland24 stephane-rolland25 stephane-rolland26 stephane-rolland27 stephane-rolland28 stephane-rolland29 stephane-rolland30 stephane-rolland31 stephane-rolland32 stephane-rolland33stephane-rolland34
