Finding a course for a fur label in the Spring/Summer season is a daunting task. Unfortunately for Revillon
's Andrew Heather, he looked for inspiration to Marie Antoinette and the Grand Trianon, the rococo splendor of which failed to jibe with a Paris season so far defined by designers' renewed explorations of minimalism. The sheared mink redingote of Heather's Resort collection for the label suggested that he's more than capable of quiet luxury, but that wasn't in the cards today—not with coats made from laser-cut ponyskin and python in shades of shocking pink and cerulean blue. A trio of coats constructed with strips of fox fur stitched into teardrop shapes affirmed Heather's masterful technique—learned over the course of ten-plus years at Givenchy, many of which were spent in the couture atelier. But again the results came off more than a bit de trop. A pair of white astrakhan coats, subtle in their splendor, pointed in the direction Heather should go next season.
