The Paolo Sebastian Spring / Summer 2015 – 16 collection is inspired by folktales of the nightingale. The delicate nature of the songbird is reflected in a series of sheer gowns, exhibiting graceful silhouettes and intricate hand-embroidered detail. In tones of pewter, peony and copper, the garments feature ornate embroideries, hand-sketched by designer Paul Vasileff.
Ombré and metallic fringing and delicate feather embellishment adorn several pieces, whilst a Sophie Hallette lace cape imparts a regal presence. Evoking the essence of the lovelorn nightingale’s serenade, the collection presents an old-world charm, holding true to the signature Paolo Sebastian look.
