From feathered frocks to floral embellishments, we’ve rounded up the top trends from Paris Haute Couture Week!
It seemed as though all the Couture shows were filled with beautiful plumage this season. We guess when it comes to designers, birds of a feather really do flock together! Whether featured in a flirty skirt or in a statement making clutch, we adore this trend.
As we mentioned in December, this bold shade of sapphire blue is right on trend – and clearly the bright hue isn’t going away anytime soon! We loved Atelier Versace’s gowns in the primary colour with matching smokey eyes created by makeup artist Pat McGrath.
“LE SMOKING” NOVEAU
Le Smoking, also known as The Tuxedo, was popularized for women by Yves Saint Laurent in 1966. Throughout the years, it has been reincarnated in many variations, from Bianca Jagger’s iconic white version for her ’71 nuptials to Mick, to Emma Stone’s tuxedo-inspired Dior Couture gown worn to this year’s SAG Awards. The New Tuxedo has many forms and is a great alternative for non-traditional brides.
Capes are yet another trend that we have been loving as of late! Solange’s influence has clearly made its way to the realm of Haute Couture, with numerous caped options (from classically feminine versions by Georges Hobeika to modern muumuus by Stephane Rolland) on the runway this SS2015 season.
Dresses, clutches and even boots were adorned with beautiful jewels and crystals this season and these eye-catching looks were some of our favourites. There’s nothing we love more than “bling” done in a fashion-forward way.
Considering that our current issue is “The Floral Issue”, you can probably guess which trend we are most excited about. Flowers were all over this season, featured front and centre in Chanel’s stunning show, which transformed the Grand Palais into a giant greenhouse, as well as woven into the hair of the models at Valentino’s show.
Cutouts were featured across the board, from big name labels like Dior and Atelier Versace to up-and-coming designers like Ulyana Sergeenko and Alexandre Vauthier. We love this sexy way of showing skin in a tasteful way.
The final trend we noticed everywhere was sheer fabric. Some designers like Valentino used lightweight sheer chiffon from head to toe, while others incorporated it in sexy side panels. We look forward to seeing this trend interpreted in bridal fashion in the coming months.
