‘’It’s a broken heart, this season. I went through a heartbreak’’, French designer Ludovic de Saint Sernin said backstage about his Fall/Winter 2020 collection. ‘’I’ve created a special bond with my community and I felt I wanted to share that’’.
Show notes explained that the creation of this collection – his fifth so far – was a ‘’cathartic expression’’. This expression was sometimes literal, with ceramic chest plates and belt buckles bearing the symbol of a broken heart. Looks were predominantly black and white, but even the exact choice of white communicated his feelings – it was called blanc cassé, which translates literally to ‘’broken’’.
