But there is one person that cannot appraise the riot of colours, the rebellion cut of the Spring Summer 2012 Couture collection, cannot appreciate hairstyle and make-up. I’m talking about Amy Winehouse. The image of the...

Dior Couture SS2012

Feb 12, 12 Dior Couture SS2012

With the departure of John Galliano from the Dior fashion house, of course the question arose who will replace him. Some people are indispensable, but no one is irreplaceable. The search for a replacement was a very complex process causing a lot of stir in fashion business and media, but for a moment the choice fell on Bill Gaytten...

Alexandre Vauthier SS2012

Jan 31, 12 Alexandre Vauthier SS2012

It all started from the “Youth Dew” of Estée Lauder. As a starting point for creation of the summer 2012 Alexandre Vauthier haute couture collection served the perfume’s bottle. Or rather its shape: concise, elongated and almost minimalist if not an only design “excess” – a golden bow, emphasizing...

Stephane Rolland SS2012

Jan 31, 12 Stephane Rolland SS2012

I noticed that I always start articles about Stephane Rolland with words of admiration or talk about beauty. And all this is true about every collection of the designer. So during the Spring-Summer 2012 presentation I was already difficult to surprise with floor-length dresses of muslin and silk, sparkling details in rays of...

In one of her interviews, the priestess of fashion journalism and a true lady Suzy Menkes to answer a question, what is able to draw her attention in a new collection of a designer which she comes to review for a thirty-third season, said something like this: “All the designers sooner or later begin to repeat themselves.

Alexis Mabille SS2012

Jan 26, 12 Alexis Mabille SS2012

“Only those women who do not know how to dress are afraid of a colour. A dress may be brilliant without vulgarity, and delicate but not faded”- this citation from the “In Search of Lost Time” novel of Marcel Proust best describes “Colour Therapy”- the summer couture collection of the fashion house...

On Aura Tout Vu SS2012

Jan 26, 12 On Aura Tout Vu SS2012

“Woven out of fire” – comes to mind when you would want to name the latest Couture Spring-Summer 2012 collection of On Aura Tout Vu (a French expression roughly equivalent to “That takes the cake!”). I must confess that every time with a bated breath I’m waiting for their show and is tortured by the question: how...

Christophe Josse SS2012

Jan 25, 12 Christophe Josse SS2012

If not for the press release or Christophe Josse himself appearing at the end of the show for traditional bow, I would have thought that the summer haute couture collection belongs not only to different periods of creation, but also to a number of different designers. The starting points of the collection were on one hand – a...
