The Franck Sorbier SS12 collection was recently unveiled during this year’s Paris Fashion Week. An ode to femininity, it was inspired by everything from Venus de Milo to Yves Klein’s anthropomorphic performances; paintings from the Renaissance to vintage photos of half-naked Tahitians. Going hand-in-hand with this feminine aesthetic is the eroticism evoked by the molded bustiers. Each bustier highlights every detail of the upper female form so much so that the models look almost naked.

Ranging from billowing ivory dresses to sleeker ebony frocks, the Franck Sorbier SS12 collection is haute couture to its very core. The Franck Sorbier SS12 collection is filled with theatrical and dramatic designs that would make them the perfect costumes for an operative production centering around an ancient era.
