This week was the Paris Couture Fashion Collections and describing it as ‘eventful’ would be an understatement. From protesters at Fendi to huge catwalk cages at Christian Dior – this is a couture season to remember.
Below are some of our favourite looks and memorable pieces from the past week.
Valentino – this collection was inspired by Rome and showcased in a square. The whole look created really emphasizes the Italian routes of the label – it was founded in 1959 in Rome. We love the regal neckline and cape.
Fendi – A new show in this couture season made its mark with this bird inspired look. Karl Lagerfeld’s ‘haute fourrure’ ( couture fur) will definitely be a memorable addition to this seasons showcase and not only for the looks produced. The show caused anti-fur protesters from the Bridget Bardott Foundation to demonstrate outside the venue.
Jean Paul Gaultier went back to his signature stripes for this couture collection – a bold decision for a designer who announced in 2014 he would no longer be releasing any ready-to-wear collections.
Zuhair Murad – the Lebanese designer brought some noticable sparkle to the couture catwalk. We love the wide sleeves and flared trouser leg here!
Chanel – this was the show of the couture collections. With guests such as Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore playing on the Casino tables as part of the catwalk, this was certainly a memorable show. This white two piece suit, like many other looks from the collection, really captures what Chanel as a label represents.
