The tailleurs by Dolce & Gabbana with blazer and shorts crafted in a fabric that evokes the damask show a giant chessboard effect. Thousands of sequins cover the dresses and suits by Ashish Gupta in which the pied de poule motif looks as if seen through a magnifying glass. Balmain chooses Vichy squares in black and white for the brand's bustier dresses and flared skirts that takes you right away to Saint Tropez. Isabel Marant uses abstract prints with geometric lines that stand out on dresses with important shoulders. Balenciaga uses microsquares and pied de poule motifs in gutsy double-breasted jackets.
