A Beautiful DreamParis Haute Couture SS17

This season Chanel Haute Couture’s look is all about a crazy femininity: with structured shoulders, defined and slightly raised waists, it reveals the accentuated hips. For Dior, memory is the driving force shaping a new story that rewrites the House’s lexicon, translating it into shapes and cuts that are the imprint of the silhouettes, dreams and desires of today’s women. Givenchy mixes the west american dresses with the high elegance: red checked dress with a high ruffled neck, sequins and wild fringes. Extremely feminine with a metropolitan appeal in chiffon, tulle, metal in total black, white, red and blue. The world of Valentino is a beautiful dream; simple and straight silhouette, overlay, plissé, velvet, chiffon. Tone of vivid colours are mixed with the magic of the natural, the dresses are minimal, everything is essential and pure. Maison Margiela garments are deconstructed and reconstructed through multiple layering until a final image comes to life. Unions between contrasting fabrics and colours create reconfigurations and authentic menswear fabrics are used to evoke memories of classic garments. Giambattista Valli is a fairy tale ending with a big explosion of tulle; 70’s inspired, floral prints in between pastel colours and embroidered details. Viktor & Rolf shows collages of fragments of vintage cocktail, coloured tulle and a charming twist. Schiaparelli introduces in the collection the beloved Japanese and Chinese elements, adding sensual touches to the oriental embroidery. It’s a modern art made by vivid colours in a dreaming collection.
