Aaaah, it´s that time of the year again: While we, ordinary and simple people, are bothered with surviving the current heat that time of the year, A-list actors and actresses, musicians of all kind, and those kind of beautiful girls you really envy but don´t know what it is they are exactly doing for a living, pilgrim to Paris for the Haute Couture shows of the world´s best and most exclusive designers.
Now, I really hope I´m not the only one here, but even though I don´t get to visit any of the shows (obvs.), I personally always find myself looking forward to Fashion Week; alone stalking picture after picture of breathtaking, handcrafted dresses that are embroidered to perfection makes Fashion Week season one of my favourite times/periods/seasons (???) of the year.
As so far Paris Fashion Week has come to an end, I thought it would be a good idea to round-up my personal highlights from Fashion Week for you guys.
On we go.
- Elie Saab
Raise your hand if you, too, adore Elie Saab! The Lebansese born designer never ceases to amaze me with his extravagantly crafted creations and is a go-to on the red carpets of this world. In this collection, the dominant colour was gold, which was inspired by the vast byzantine architecture; clearly, Elie, also in this new collection, stayed true to his prefered shapes cuts, with a-lined, fluttery, cinched-in at the waist dresses dominating the look of this collection.
2. Christian Dior Haute Couture
When Raf Simmons was first announced as the new creative director for Christian Dior I was more than sceptical; now, I feel myself however becoming more and more intrigued by his exquisitely classical, clean and yet modern creations. This time around, the fashion show was set in a futuristically constructed orangery and featured long, flowy dresses as well as coats in bold colours.
Slaaay, Kendall, slaaaay.
To say that I am obsessed with this show would be such an understatment. Firstly, any show that features Kendall Jenner is a win for me. Then, the dresses themselves were beautifully flowy, feathery, contained a large variety of colours. And lastly: the show´s front row with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley slayed as well. What do you need more?
Last but certainly not least: Valentino. If I was to wear any of the mentioned designers, I would without a doubt pick Valentino. Their pieces are like those from Chanel: timeless, classical and yet always with a twist. In my opinion, Valentino has been killing it with it´s past couple of collections and I dearly hope it will continue to do so.
I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Thanks for reading!!
