Close up: The Grecian-style silhouettes of Guo Pei AW 2019/20 Couture collection

Guo Pei’s signature three-dimensional embroidery was once again in the spotlight when her Alternate Universe was unveiled towards the end of Paris couture week.
Combined with the use of Lafite embroidery techniques, the designer conjured up vivid images of these creatures, layered with rich emotion and life-like texture.

In existence for over 400 years, pineapple hemp, a fabric heavily used in Guo Pei’s Alternate Universe, is extracted from the leaf fibre of pineapple plants, and put through seven manual processes.










Through its natural ivory color and translucent delicate texture, pineapple hemp fabric provides the perfect look to the Grecian-style silhouettes of Guo Pei AW 2019/20 Couture collection.
