Paris Fall/winter Haute Couture Fahionweek 2011/2012
Paris Fashionweek has arrived! From July 4-7 it was an array of colours, fabrics, gowns, skirts, feathers and all the components of an Haute Couture show in this 2011 generation. There were some surprises, some deceptions but above all, there was fashion! Talented designers vowed to demonstrate their talent, vision and art in this Fall/winter 2011 Haute Couture Show.
Giorgio Armani Privé
The atmosphere was in the TRES chic elegant oriental mode. An original theme, well thought of and executed. My favorite outfit is the long sequined skirt with the orange "corset". I love the colour mix, it's new, fresh and you just want to wear it! I am not a big fan of the other looks with the floral japonese-esque patterns but I guess it's just my North American background kicking in. This collection is so unexpected and new, I will probably end up by loving it, just give it some time!
Designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli went romantic for this Valentino Haute Couture Collection. Pairing nude with gold accents and transparent flowy dresses comes straight from the delicate and romantic kingdom of dreams.
The Valentino crew also shows that Black can also be romantic and soft with velvet and East European inspired patterns. I really like this black turnaround, giving a new attribute to the usually hard and edgy look that is given to black.
And of course what best to close the show with the everlasting Valentino red dress!
Red is Hot for the summer!
And you know what the best part is?
It’s also hot for the winter!!
In an entire Red collection Alex Vauthier pays tribute to this flamboyant color with bathing suits, dresses, rompers and fur. You truly can’t get enough of the RED!
