Haute Couture Week is my absolute favourite fashion related week of the year. It comes guilt free without the lust for wanting to buy at least fifty percent of the items on the runway- without the constant looking and chasing for a good deal for the ‘it’ bag or adorably kooky shoes, of the season. Haute Couture week is a time for the brands to really put forward their best foot. And they do just that. Haute Couture week has one aim: to makes the most gorgeous outfits which are more of a spectacle. This week gives the brands a chance to translate high fashion however they want- to set the trends for what is to follow- a chance to even redefine the brand. Whilst many fashion houses have gone in a ‘wearable’ haute couture direction, there are still some that add unorthodox materials to their couture displays. Here are my favourite looks from the Haute Couture Week, Fall 2015.
Karl Lagerfeld takes his work seriously, whether it’s selecting his models, designing one offs for his muses or putting together a show. This couture week Chanel did not disappoint. Clean cut, quilted jackets and layered mid length gowns on models portrayed as androids- dressed immaculately like futuristic Stepford wives. Classic, timeless and everything that Chanel exudes. My personal favorites were the dresses, in particular the white organza and silver lace- timeless and elegant.
