There are often comparisons of haute couture and art. It is very obvious that haute couture steps out very often from the pure fashion boundries and pure style concepts and features in more higher level of visual media which is often described in very artistic mode; another words becomes an art piece.

These two of culture and aesthetic establishments sometimes stand very close but in many cases and very wide appart too. So in this post I will search the thin line which is being known as a variable of differency between them. Many haute couture ensembles take very obvious inspiration by an artisic way of expression. It can be painted canvas which are demonstrated in couture kind of way. Many opulent and extravagant high fashion forms are inspired by modern, periods in painting, like cubanism or surrealism.

Very often and main connection between haute couture and art is hidden  in sculpture forms. Sculpting way of arts are perfect echoing mode for couture silhouette and textures, so this is the usual case of featuring and symbioze of art and fashion.

An artistic photography is often used as an inspiration in haute couture. It can be seen as materials´ appliques which are transfered from photos in couture forms. This case is not so often but it can be seen as one part of collaboration between haute couture and art.

No doubt that this kind of haute couture is more in the art spectrum spreaded, which specifies pure artistic tendecies. It is kind of high fashion which defenitely stands out and can be observed as a piece of art. Because of that many of these kind of high fashion pieces often end up like museum exponates, giving joy to the consumers of art on the one side, and fashion on the other. So as you can see, connection between art and haute couture is strong and vivid. And this is one more reason to ressure ourselves and to believe that haute couture will live forever!

What do you think about high fashion and art combination? Do you like it?

Thank you for the attention!

When we talk about the work of Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel we need to say that he always surprises with the new and innovative design ideas. His style visions are clear and direct, often presented in the fully dramatic boosted runway walk which becomes more like the theatrical stage which tells the story of its self. The megalomanic and fully dramatically featured runway is something that has become the iconic and the inevitable part of the collection.

For Fall 2018 Ready To Wear collection the runway was staged like the hidden wood, with the leaves all over the floor. This was the significance of the totally deep autumnal collection with the warm and earthy tones and shades, something which has been far from the usual pastel coloristic range which is so typical for Chanel. This time the accent was on the more monochromatic shades which the central scene was in the blacks, greys or brown.

If one thing we can sum up for this year´s Paris Fashion Week is that it was far more introspective…


Ingenious and a little up front and avant-garde. This could be the usual sum up of the Prada design. With every collection, Prada continues to set the new guidelines for the trends and style. With the famous Italian class and chic, Prada delivers the outstanding aesthetics that are new and original. The same vibes were sensed in the latest Fall 2018 Ready To Wear collection. With the fashion as the tool to understand and to present all problems today society and the world has, Prada continues in an ironic buts stylistically stunning way show us her vision of the current trendings.

Witty and up front, edgy and playful design was presented. With the high sci-fi influences, almost like Prada was presenting the clothes and outfits of the next "Mars Travellers" generation. The stiff and sculpted forms of the coats and the skirts, the invisible laser cuts which were undertoning the futuristic touch of the collection, the fluorescent colors, the combination of the sheer and chiffon…


The vision of a woman by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen has always something to talk about. This perspective is more than just a pure fashion and although it is less progressive than some others fashion houses in proclaiming the strength and the women power, it is still a silent breeder of everything want the today woman is all about. From the fragile and gentle art to the sassy and independent one. All of that the design of Sarah Burton speaks interluding the nature in all of that, and by that the nature of The Woman, as well as the nature made of flora and fauna.

The latest Fall 2018 Ready To Wear collection was everything all of that and even more. Seems that stylistically observing Sarah Burton has captioned a new much edgier look which nostalgically correspondents in the hints, of course, at the famous Savage Beauty by Lee McQueen. The corset alike belts made of the shiny leather have kept the light S-M aura. Accentuating one of the so many beautiful features a woman has, the…


Sleek and polished with the hints of the pure casual glam. With these words, the latest Fall 2018 collection by Louis Vuitton could be described. The classic chic interrupted with the sport casual mannerism was definitely the main motto of Nicholas Ghesquiere. With the current loungewear influences which are interpolating the current fashion inspiration, this collection has offered the both of those worlds, the class and casual.

The nice tailored coats with the sleek pencil skirts, the jumper alike dresses with the light opulence in the volume were the highlights of this collection. The textures were on the mainly autumnal knitwear sphere but interluded with the silky details or even eye-catching and statement piece accessories like the brooches pinned on the sweaters which have given them the sparkly and elegant aura.

The classic peak was held on the part with the sleek trousers which were standing out in the all over presented boy-pants. This refined silhouette was there to keep the…


Seems that the fashion goes through the period of the casual accents which could be seen everywhere. The easy wear and the sportswear touches are inevitable when we talk about the high fashion these days. But in this sense, the little glam factor must be satisfied. In this range, the latest Lanvin Fall Ready To Wear collection was placed.

The glamorous dresses combined with the bulky boots or sneakers, the clean and polished lines of the jackets which have had the homogenic vibe almost in tuxedo kind of way. So in this example, we could see the two faces and the two inspiration bandwagons which were main and important for Lanvin in this collection.

The witty and playful accents was in the accessories domain which were brought in the vibrant colors like the case was with the gloves, or the little waist packs which undertoned the low-key and the casual approach to the collection. The stunning moments were the dresses in the flowy tones, the shiny and silky textures of the fabrics, and t…


In the peak of the #MeToo movement, the new empowerment of women has collided and "interrupted" the fashion world, too. Fashion has always been the open medium for all the revolutions, emancipations and society reflexions that have become the part of the fashion corpus. Seems that the people in Valentino have embraced the main targets of this new society clime which stands out for the power of the women.

In Fall 2018 Ready to Wear collection Pierpaolo Piccioli has undertoned the new aesthetic that is far from the traditional classic Valentino woman. He has served us the pure romantic brought in the modern, edgy and sassy kind of way. The current and contemporary Valentino woman is self-conscious and knows her worth, but it is also a deep dreamer and melancholic type which is today in the social media frenzy something so rare and something worth to cherish.

The new romantic was presented in the flowy and fluent silhouettes. They were not brought only in the bomber-balloon-y f…


There is something strong and straight, up-front when we talk about the work of Maria Grazia Chiuri for Dior. It is almost in the area of being full of paroles brought in a visual way. The women empowering movement seems like Chiuri has predicted with her "We Should All Be Feminists" t-shirts a few seasons ago. This is a pure example and proves how the fashion has the most refined sense of social problems, way ahead of pro-claiming arts like theater shows or literature. But this could be the theme for its own. Let´s see how Dior sees a woman in the upcoming Fall 2018.

This collection was the mixture of Dior at its finest art and the tomboyish features. Starting with the baker hat which has replaced the famous "French cap" which could be seen in the latest few Dior collections. This time the choice was much sassier and it has the refined androgynous notes. The voluminous jackets and coats, the rain-coats, the flat robust boots, the dark and deep colors. All of that …
