For his second official haute couture collection, Julien Fournié chose again to show in the Oratoire du Louvre; a place with a spirituality sensibility for his Premier Oracle, the name given to the autumn/winter 2017-2018 collection.

Blonde and brown boyfriend haircuts, oversized lashes and extra-long dresses that draped; the woman/divinity of Julien Fournié came perched on heels made by FashionLab 3D technology, playing the card of subtle contrasts. From black, to gold to powdered beige, there were Baroque accents, even sometimes a gothic touch to the designer's silhouettes, without sacrificing femininity.

With cinched waists, high collars covering the neckline and sleeves that clung to the arms, the designer's dresses appeared monacal, while others -- still full-length -- offered a hint of nudity, only to the covered by embroidery.

Show goers had to wait for the finale however, accompanied by a soundtrack mixed by Jean-Paul Cauvin (CEO of Julien Fournié SAS), for silhouettes to take volume, and the arrival of a woman adorned with eyelashes that looked like a crown of thorns.
