FIFTY SHADES OF PASTEL

Hello dear fashion friends! As previous posts of mine were really edgy, very decadent and dark I decided that in today´s post I share some of my impressions and to curate few images of haute couture ensembles made in pastel.

Pastel colors are not really colors they are shades of main warm or cool toned colors, but brought on very soft and crisp variants. So let us enjoy in some of candy eyes a la haute couture.

As you can imagine the main domain of these couture are spring/summer collections. Here we can see how color is very important for final definition of collection. Pastel shades come often in airy and light combinations, in very wearable ensembles colliding perfectly with "belle couture" which is an opposite term of more sassy and modern savage couture.

The impressions of pastel couture is very feminine with loosed hint of sexappeal. Nothing has brought in exaggerations, only in perfectly elegant shapes and forms. This coloration choice also corresponds with the choice…

3-D HAUTE COUTURE

Hello my dear fashion frineds! As I look closely in haute couture I have to admit I notice every day new features and forms which are needed to be mentioned. What caught my eye is defenitely 3-D haute couture or in full term said: three dimensional haute couture.

What does it mean and how does it transfere to visual couture realization? It means that the texture and appliques are not drawn or printed in the material, but in shapes of touchable palpitations´ features. It can be the variety of forms, anything you can imagine can be put in 3-D haute couture; waves which are spirally displayed around the body, real feather revealing real birds´ visual imitations, an arabesque made of real iron or if we go really decadent, and couture is a percect media for it, of real gold. As you see the choice of forms and shapes is inevitable.

We can say for sure that 3-D haute couture is the future of fashion. But the pioneer of this couture is defenitely the dutch designer Iris van Herpen. She makes …

SUBCULTURES IN HAUTE COUTURE

Hello my fashionistas! So as the fashion week impressions of mine are put in display for you guys (you can read all of them here, just scroll down and enjoy) I decided to go back to my typical themed occupacions, haute couture in all of its forms and features. Today I decided to say few things about collide of haute couture and subculters.

First just to say few words about subculters and what they really are? Subculters are social and cultural phenomenons which are connected to present cultural strives. So we can say, the subculters are trending anti-appearences in visual, musical, theatrical wise, or in art and society in general. What I mean by "anti-appearences" etrm is that they are the consciously separated from conventional society and cultural mode. What is most intriguing the oxymoron nature of it; haute couture as a symbol for tradition and by cannons strongly framed expressions at the other, and very modern and avant garde expression at the other side, in form of a…

HAUTE COUTURE AW 2016/2017: IRIS van HERPEN

Hello my dear friends! So for the last impression post of haute couture fashion week I have decided to write about collection of the famous dutch designer which is very known for her innovative design in haute couture. The vision of haute couture of Iris van Herpen is very artisticly boosted with polyvalentic perspective to it. Her design is like 3-dimensional installations with very sculpted accentuated features.

That was the case with this collection, too. A very futuristic and avant garde vibe with a new vision of femininity and elegance. The ensembles were, although very down the structural and opulent side, very airy and light. This was defenitely successfully done by choice of the texture, a very stiff silky material which was perfect for getting that sculpting effect. The inspiration was in the see flora and fauna; so the presented forms were futuristic visions and realizations of seashelfs and jellyfishes in already mentioned 3-dimensional form. The heels were never the less b…

HAUTE COUTURE AW 2106/2017: SCHIAPARELLI

Hello my dear fashion friends! United Colors of Haute Couture! That could be one sentence by which I could describe the playout of italian design house Schiaparelli! The collection vibrated by so many vivid colors but not just that, the cuts and forms were amazing, almoust stepping in joyable "uncomfort" avant garde zone. So I am so excited to bring you closer this show.

As the first thing that cought my eye were defenitely sleek and very strongly defineD silhouettes. They were very stiff making the shoulders standing out. Even on the dresses with accentuated decolletes the shoulders´ applique was highlighted, so this gave the whole ensembles very "couture with attitude" kind of vibe.

One thing which was also noticeable was defenitely the diversity of  forms; we have seen gorgeously opulent or very pencil alike lined dresses, or the boldly printed corsets in combinaton with puffed by glittery boosted shorst, or the modern version of wrapping dress which was origina…
