Haute Couture SS17 Report

Haute Couture SS17 Report

02 Apr 2017

In many ways, Paris Haute Couture shared several characteristics with the women’s marches that took place around the world last weekend: both included prolonged periods of standing around outside in frigid temperatures, both engendered a female majority interest and one-of-a-kind ensembles featuring the colour pink, and both were attacked by sideline critics insisting they were pointless, reported Financial Times.

Wearable clothes at couture are something of an oxymoron: just where... Read More

Jean Paul Gaultier: Haute Couture FW16/17

Jean Paul Gaultier: Haute Couture FW16/17

28 Nov 2016

Jean Paul Gaultier took us into the woods with his couture collection. It was an unusual setup for JPG. He’s more likely to summon the ghosts of Paris’s legendary nightclub Le Palace, or re-create Dancing with the Stars with a supermodel cast and an all-star jury. Gaultier’s never struck anybody as the outdoorsy type, has he? He’s a people person. But in his trademark fashion, he did woodsy with gusto.

As such, a wood-grain print got things going, appearing on everything from a slinky... Read More

Valentino Haute Couture FW 2016-17

Valentino Haute Couture FW 2016-17

13 Nov 2016

The world as a stage, on which each individual represents himself, driven by passions, feelings, and by emotions that are infinite shades of living and being there. In the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli explore the idea of theatrum mundi for the Valentino Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2016-17 Collection.

The austere and moderate tone, the choice of dense colors, precious and nocturnal, upon which an opulent and deep black... Read More

Atelier Versace SS 2016

Atelier Versace SS 2016

09 Jun 2016

Clothes like seduction weapons, sartorial masterpieces that reveal the body. Donatella Versace keeps conveying her personal interpretation of haute couture and carries Atelier Versace towards a modern elegance, an almost dream-like elegance, with a haute couture-like perfection. Evening dresses and tuxedos, deconstructed and reassembled, kept in place by silicon bands or colored crystal ropes. Perforated mini bodices alternate with long chiffon dresses adorned by straps, or unveil precious... Read More

Gucci SS16 Ready-To-Wear

Gucci SS16 Ready-To-Wear

10 May 2016

Tenderness is the key word to interpret this Gucci collection. Alessandro Michele continues the narration he started last January and confirms his talent in interpreting today’s aesthetics and tastes. Under the pouring rain in a new venue, an old tram depot in Milan’s  outskirts, another chapter of the Gucci story is being written. La dérive, that is, losing oneself, is only the beginning of a narration that sums up all that Michele has done so far: an exploration made of vital traces,... Read More

Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture SS16

10 May 2016

As always, Alexandre Vauthier collections are all about French savoir-faire paired with a certain edginess and a touch of glamour. This time around, his women's Couture offering came with a particularly sensual flair, as outfits evolved from street-wear inspired looks to more romantic ones. On the runway, his fierce and ultra-feminine Haute Couture pieces were quite appealing – think ultra-short and floor-skimming cocktail numbers in shiny dévoré optic or leggy and silk gowns with crystal...

Elie Saab Haute Couture SS16

Elie Saab Haute Couture SS16

10 May 2016

Lilah Wingfield, English explorer of the last century, and her travel diaries inspired this Couture collection of Elie Saab. Indian inspirations  dissolve the Victorian heritage of the clothes and make the entire collection fresh and light. On the catwalk, mini lace dresses, long tunics covered in crystals and wide pants to wear with sari tops. There are also elegant lace and crystals gowns, unique creations that we will soon see on the red carpet at the Grammys.

Green Flash

06 Apr 2016

If you love to explore and want to shed off the mundane moments of your life, stick to the lush and happy green here that certainly has a rather distinct calm to it while still carrying an inspiring sense of curious exploration through things that are lush and brightened by the sun. It is a popular hue and we loved having it appear on the runways for the spring and summer seasons, as it is simply perfect for that time of the year.

Matched with Snorkel Blue, you can definitely see the... Read More

Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture SS 2016

06 Apr 2016

The enfant terrible of fashion brings to the catwalk the magnificence of the Palace, the famous Paris nightclub that in the late 1970s and the mid 1980s was the meeting place of socialites, artists, designers and fashion icons. The models took on the runaway wearing flamboyant pyjama suits, Tuxedo jackets worn over sequins dresses or cinched at the waist with obi belts, men's shirts under transparent tunics and lace skirts. Each outfit seems to impress, seduce and get noticed, preferring... Read More

Stephane Rolland Haute Couture SS 2016

Stephane Rolland Haute Couture SS 2016

31 Mar 2016

Stephane Rolland staged a show in the spirit of the traditional Haute Couture shows, when models used to walk the runway with number cards in their hands, when their outfits were described to the audience with an announcement made as soon as they stepped on the runway. And while the show's choreography brought us back in time, the Couture offering itself was utterly contemporary. Collection-wise, Rolland went back to basics and showcased his signature styles only - a small offering of 17... Read More
