French designer Ludovic de Saint Sernin has a unique way of exploring and conveying sexuality through his designs. The delicate, bone-thin models with folded hands and oversized jewelry that seem to bind them create a particular atmosphere in his shows. It's as if wearing a Ludovic de Saint Sernin dress instantly transforms you, instilling a similar sense of potent, subversive allure.
His brief stint at the house of Ann Demeulemeester appears to have made a significant impression on Saint Sernin. It seems to have drawn out his principal silhouettes and imbued his work with a sense of calm, demonstrating an evolution and refinement of his signature provocative aesthetics. His designs, while maintaining their erotic undercurrent, show a sophisticated subtlety that marks him out as a designer of note.
