HAUTE COUTURE AW 2016/2017: DIOR

Hello my lovelies! I really hope you have been enjoying my posts about haute couture fashion week. You have to know that this is the moment of the year for which I as a haute couture blogger can´t wait to see, so I really have the urge to write and analiyse what was seen on the runways.

In today´s post I will write my impressions about Dior show. Ok, I have to admit, today´s Dior in visual sense is very different from John Galliano´ days and that is a little, I have to be honest, disappointing. But, every house of couture has it´s own evolution and I have to admit the stage where Dior is today is not maybe on couture Olympus but it is standing proudly channelling the most elegant couture.

This was the case with this collection. It was very simple with strong vertical silhouette, loosed a little in the waist and in the sleeves which were puffed. The collection was really monochromatic not only in coloration but in cuts too. Long dresses were boosted gently with pleats, chiffon ruffles, embroidered ornaments, or they were just falling very free in airy and wide form.

This minimalistic aesthetic was accentuated even more with flatted opened sandals which were tied with satin ribbons. This gave the whole ensembles very casual feed back. I think on this point the self confidence of designers in Dior to display on couture show flats was really worth of admiration. But don´t worry the couture and elegant peak was defenitelly reached.

The hair was sleek, taken from the face away. Very simple, which was only following that loosed up vibe of the whole collection. The make up was different, very dramatic with very ultra bold eyeliner game on the upper lid or only on down lid, or reminiscencing the ancient Egypt, on the both up and down. This gave the collection very arhaicly modern touch.

This collection was not maybe a typical haute couture collection. It was really down to earth, with simplicity choosen to be the only imperative. But this simplicity is in general very hard to accomplish, but Dior did an amazing job. It offered new aesthetic, ok maybe a little ascetic but in this couture frame we could see the elegance and craftmenship to the fullest. And that is what makes this colection a total hit!

What do you think about this collection? Do you like latest design vibes coming from Dior?

Thank you for the attention!

PFW: MIU MIU S/S 2018 READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

The fashion concept of design house Miu Miu has been always witty and playful. Miu Miu is an epitome for strong and confident women who love fashion but love the original approach to it. This has nothing to do with experiments ready but only bold to mix already new items into the new concept. This fresh approach to already common and actual trends was presented in the latest Miu Miu Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection.

Mixing prints were on the sight as the main design inspiration. Above that the mix of pieces which were taken from their known concept like the dresses featured in stunning micro stiff laced textures on the top of the simple much more leisure tops. The silhouettes were airy and wide, especially on the dresses and coats. Oh, talking about the coats. They have become the statement piece from house Miu Miu. In this collection, they were a heterogenic picture of floral and plaid tartan.

The unconventional approach was on the foots. And this trend was in the spotligh…

THE COATS SYNERGIE BY CELINE

Seems that the starting point or the first inspirational strives from where everything has been started for CĂ©line Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection was the coat or several of them. Having that point on the mind Celine was created an amazing and flowy collection with volume and cozy factor as the imperatives. The coat spirit was sensed on the dresses too. Fluent and almost avant-garde style with few hints of strong silhouettes enough to break the leisure factor which was highly participated from the inspiration point of view.

When your base is the coat or a trenchcoat to be more precise you have immediately the conquered the coloristic spectrum too. In this case, plenty of nudes and gentle colors which can go perfectly with everything were the essentials on the colors scale. But again the "Blitz" factor was presented in the sophisticated breakthrough by the vibrant tones like reds, oranges, and mustard yellows.

The inspiration by the coat was not suspended or even …

MFW: VERSACE S/S 2018 READY TO WEAR COLLECTION

The Versace Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection has probably been the hardest one to make. Not because of inspiration lack but because it was twenty years anniversary of Gianni Versace´s tragic death. With this on her mind, Donatella Versace had had the hard thing, to make something in memory of her brother, to make a remarkable collection that would celebrate Gianni´s life as well as the fashion work.

The collection was a visual collage of Versace´s sense of design with huge nineties vibes. From remarkable and typically Versace from Gianni era prints with vibrant yellow and black interludes, silky fabrics in all their glory, the eighties silhouette with big shoulders´ accents, mommy jeans, and high waisted skirts.

The more toned down colors were displayed as the show was going on. With monochromatic ensembles in red, orange or blue, to the all black ones. The pastels were involved too in the shape of elegant evening dresses with opened shoulders. The remarkable celebration of…

EASY CHIC BY BOTTEGA VENETA

The influencing and on-going trend which has been emerging more and more on the fashion scene is probably the leisure concept which has brought the casual impressions from the streets to the high fashion and runway show. The fact that fashion has been inspired by the street outfits´ fusion is nothing new but this trend looks so effortless and easy to wear from day to night so the fashion has not been more involved into the daily utilize then today.

Seems that this trend was kept on the design and inspiration eye in the house of Bottega Veneta. The luxury elegance has been replaced with causal and light wear outfits with poly-use. The latest Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection was the perfect display of the Bottega vision how the fashion can be incorporated into the mainstream of life. The glamorous trenchcoats with belts on them accentuating the elegant silhouette, the more wider forms on the dresses which were boosted up visually through the metallic studs on the pockets.

ECLECTIC COUTURE TO GO BY MARNI

The eclectic approach to the fashion design and style has always been a tricky field. The eclecticism considers the mish-mash of the textures, colors, prints, fabrics, accessories and everything else what design in fashion stands for. To have the polished and refined style in all of this vivid visual spectacle you really need a good sense for design.

This successfully eclectic spin-off was the leading design note for the Marni Spring/Summer 2018 Ready-To-Wear Collection. The heterogenic approach not just to the cuts and forms but to the fashion editions too have brought the spectacular collection to the life. By this I mean the mixture of Ready to Wear and Haute Couture. The high fashion or Couture was in the forms. The voluptuous and sculpted volume in the silhouettes was very experimental and avant-garde, the features that are more often to see in the context of the Haute Couture.

The next level that has made this collection so amazing was already mentioned an eclectic approach to i…
