Paris Haute Couture: Highlights

January 24, 2013

Hello! As you may know, high fashion took to the runways this week in Paris, the Carrousel du Louvre became the host of the Spring Summer 2013 Haute Couture Fashion Week. The collections have been at the same time, masculine, yet feminine; somber, yet bright; geometric, yet soft; indisputably modern, yet unquestionably inspired by generations of the past. It didn't disappoint the guests.

I'm going to show you the highlights and my favourite design of each show.




Alexis Mabille



As if it was the court of Marie Antoinette, Alexis Mabille's spring-summer 2013 Haute Couture collection is pure rococo extravagance.

Favourite design




Armani Privé


To the Arab luxuriant gardens, full of toasted colors and spicy smells is where the Armani Privé collection has led us.

Favourite design



Atelier Versace


Versace was in charge of opening the Haute Couture Week. Inside a palatial and recharged  atmosphere - what Versace loves - the fashion show gave gold and opulent accents.


Favourite design



Chanel


Chanel's latest collection is a mix of 60's silhouettes and classic touches from the Belle Epoque.

Favourite design


Christian Dior


Alice in Wonderland. That's where Raf Simons made us travel to with his Haute Couture collection.


Favourite design

Couldn't choose between these two!



Elie Saab


Delicacy and femininity is something always present in Elie Saab designs. Something that could not miss in the Haute Couture Week.


Favourite design



Giambattista Valli


In black and white. Defined silhouettes. Waists 50's style. Giambattista Valli surrenders to the darkest simplicity.


Favourite design



Jean Paul Gaultier


Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture fashion show was based on dresses that contain hidden details of each part of the world.


Favourite design



Valentino


Valentino's fashion show was evocative and spring to the utmost.
