CHRISTIAN DIOR SS 2017 COUTURE

First time is the hardest! Well not if you ask Maria Grazia Chiuri, a new fashion director at Dior. This was her first haute coture collection and it was boldly innovative, gorgeously story telling and with all couture elemements so on point. But lets start from the beginning! The show was placed at the magic wood alike inscenation. First models at the runway wore black voluminous chic capes boosted with inspiring head pieces. And then as the show went on the whole pack of fauna fairies "occupied" the runway.

The ensembles roll on in the form of romantic easy to wear dresses made of light materials. See through chiffon, embelished textures with hint of fairy alike dusty glitter all over, soft floral motives hidden within, all of that could be seen at the runway! As if this show was the couture inscenation of Shakespeare´s "Midnight Summer Dream", very etherical and magic touch was so strong and got even more accentuated by very theatrical and stunning head ornaments!

The new aesthetic of Dior is born, we can say that for sure! It is very elegant, gentle and bold at the same time! So much warmer than Raf Simons era. Of course the vintage spirit of Dior aura is placed in waisted ensembles with more flowy and modern silhouette! This was very gorgeously low key hautec couture collection but very aspiring making us wanting for more! So, big congratulations at Maria Grazia Chiuri! It wasn´t easy to step in Dior´s shoes but she did it effortlessly and succesffully!

ELIE SAAB SPRING/SUMMER 2017 COUTURE

If you had visited my blog couple of times you could altready know that Elie Saab is one of my favorite couturiers! I really like the high fashion aesthetic that Saab sees and nourishes. His desigh is all about pure femininity, with very gentle approach to it with high elegance factor. This latest collection was all of that and even more.

The main leading visual point was etheric and whimsical beauty of couture. That idea was perfectly realized in see through chiffons and light textures enriched by trademark of Elie Saab´s work, stunning and delicate embroidery. Because the embroidery was the main highlight of the ensembles, the choice of materials was very light with hints of models´ body as they were walking down the runway.

The choice of colors was in the same Elie Saab range; very dusty and sandy beige, gentle and deep royal blue. With more deep colors the fabrique were more heavy, so the mentioned dark blue was in the form of satin gowns. This collection was more at the etherical and fairy tale alike side. It was the typical Saab with adorable jump into more sophisticated feminine beauty of woman! The pieces of this collection will be seen on the red carpet, no doubt! More glam prove we don´t need!

GUO PEI SPRING/SUMMER 2017 COUTURE

This year´s haute couture fashion week spring/summer was defenitely at the more traditional side of high fashion. That doesn´t mean that there weren´t amazing ensembles. But what Chinese designer Guo Pei offered us was defenitely pure couture extravaganza. This designer which was the first Asian designer ever featured at the haute couture scene in Paris hase had defenitely remarkable original and strong decadent sense for aesthetic. The collection presented at this fashin week was in the same couture range.

The collection had two inspirational points; first the wildly beautiful fauna creatures in shape of stunning rich chiffon ensembles in natural and earthy colors. This point of the show had the mentioned wild nature touch with strong gothic aspirations. This gothic decadence and dramatic design approach got even more stronger at the second part of the show where models wore big crucifix tiaras avocating at the very end a strong christian theme.

These two design themes and visions were interpretation of religion evolution as the west world and culture see it! It is impressive how someone from other tradition and culture sees our common beliefs. At this point the inscenation of interpretation could be enough for another post so I will stop here and take a look at the design and taylored details.

Chiffons, ruffles, metals features, original anti-silhouettes in which couture ensemble had ledaing role in adjusting the models´ bodies. The silhouette was very artisticly strong. This collection was not at the experimental side of haute couture; it was very avant garde but in the way of deconstruction and re-designing our so far fashion and cultural (religious as well) criterias. And that is the most empowering thing couture and fashion in general can do!

What do you think about this collection?

ZUHAIR MURAD SPRING/SUMMER 2017 COUTURE

If there could be a positive megalomanical attitude torwards haute couture than this collection would probably be the trademark for it! The word is about Zuhair Murad haute couture collection for spring/summer 2017. Everything connected with Zuhaiud Murad name is so aestheticly perfect, no doubt he is one of the favorite designers of Hollywood A-list stars. In this collection he offered his typical luxurious design with huge heterogenic approach in forms, silhouettes and materials. Oh, and colors of course!

Speaking of colors; the whole show was imagined to be full spectrum of most vibrant colors; from black with fireworks alike prints on it at the very beginning, torwards deep red with shiny embelishments. Than the colors´ rollercoaster goes "wilde" with adorable color blocking of that same red and pink than hits more higher note in the shape of emerald green, azzuro blue and light grey. The grand finale was the stunning white wedding gown!

Lets talk about silhouettes! This time Zuhair Murad really went torwards more decadent and rich voluminous forms in shape of crinoline dresses and sleek corsets in upper parts. The crinoline piece was so dramaticly boosted evocating the glorious days of haute couture. Of course, there were more loosed up forms, like more sleek drapping silky dresses or very luxurious at the front deep cutted jumpsuits. Hair and makeup were simple, high bunny and bold eyeliner game on the eyes. This collection was grandious and simply beautiful! It had that whisp of good old days when haute couture was more relevant for fashion industry! This collection but this whole fashion week in Paris is a prove that couture still lives! Viva haute couture!
