Dévastée invited us to their spring/summer 2012 fashion show with smiling popup churches. The invitation gave us a peek at what was to come down the runway at the parisian club Showcase underneath the Pont Alexandre III. Another macabre show of Fashion Week in Paris, Dévastée presented a playfully creepy collection of stripey menswear cuts, translucent, patterned pieces, and silky rompers. As if apart of some cheeky funeral procession, the models were dressed in monochromatic black ensembles, many with the smiling pattern of jack-o-lanternesque churches, crosses, tombstones, and skulls mixed with Eiffel Towers, flowers, and hearts. Dévastée using dark, gothic motifs on flowy fabrics, created dresses, skirts, shorts, and blazers that will blend nicely from winter to spring.
