|Marie Petrakova Wooden Platforms|
Anne Valérie Hash presented her Spring/Summer 2012 collection - Blue tangerine - at the Jeu de Paume in the Jardins des Tuileries on September 30, 2011. Once housing the tennis courts of Napoleon III, this now art museum's blank walls awaited the impressionistic designs of AVH. Whitewash walls absorbed the delicate cotton chiffon, linen voile, silk, and taffeta color melanges of tangerine, Klein blue, pomegranate, powder, sand, and smoky blue.
The towering fairies wore menswear structures that contradicted themselves with flowing design details such as soft folds on low slung trousers, or chiffon capes attached at the shoulder and wrist, which bloomed behind the models as they tiptoed down the runway on amazing wooden platforms by Marie Petrakova. "Anne Valérie Hash's woman builds a new elegance in soberness. The balance of the silhouette lies in the contrast between draping and vertical lines" described the collection information packet. Although dresses weren't the stars of the collection, nonetheless, AVH created an elegantly structured yet beautifully feminine show.
