Dior Couture SS2011

Jan 24, 11 Dior Couture SS2011

Perhaps this is the only brand, which acronym CD is known to everyone. And the name of John Galliano is a brand in itself. What do we, mere mortals, could expect from the house Christian Dior at the haute couture show in Paris? Nothing like the previous shows! Galliano defies routine and dullness. Classic but transiting into each...

Alexandre Vauthier SS2011

Jan 24, 11 Alexandre Vauthier SS2011

Get plenty of flowing silk, add shiny satin and rather solemn velvet, do not forget about sequins and gold, sparkling in camera flashes, and a long fur, giving the lazy luxury to the silhouette. Now remains the most important – to correctly “open” the body. Alexandre Vauthier is not only well aware of women’s...

Time changes and with it evolves and the concept of haute couture. Remaining the privilege of the rich, clothes become more realistic: in addition to pure aesthetics, they become practical. Now couture dress may not just stay on a hanger to be admired from time to time, but also can be put on for special occasions, and even not...

Julien Fournié

We are sitting on a sunlit summer terrace of the atelier of the Parisian fashion house Julien Fournié, overlooking the green roof of the Opéra Garnier on the right, and the hills of Montmartre with white Sacré Coeur on top slightly on the left. A more “glamorous” address for a fashion studio is difficult to come up...

Jean Paul Gaultier FW2010

Jul 07, 10 Jean Paul Gaultier FW2010

Couture show of Jean Paul Gaultier, traditionally held in-house, in a spacious hall on the first floor of the brand’s headquarters, has been delayed for an hour. Having examined the front row, making sure that the entire fashion world is here and wondering who else we expect, I went through the press release, courteously placed on...

Elie Saab FW2010

Jul 07, 10 Elie Saab FW2010

Dedicating his new haute couture collection to the Theater, Elie Saab, apparently, had a scenic decor in mind or to be precise, the curtain. However, looking at the models on the catwalk, the associations rose not with the stated in the press release Viennese opera house “La Fenice”, but rather with the county...

In the Kingdom of Far Far Away or, more precisely, in the gardens of the Palais Royal took place the show of the haut couture and accessories brand “On aura tout vu”. Wonderful fairy-tale characters appeared on the garden paths. Here is the Snow Queen in a white-blue mantle with a huge standing collar and sleeveless tippet with...

Jul 07, 10 Christophe Josse FW2010

During the Fall/Winter 2010 haute couture fashion week in Paris we saw Chanel, Givenchy, Elie Saab, Jean Paul Gaultier and Valentino shining on the catwalks. That is expected and has become a “classic”. However there were shows of lesser known but no less talented masters, such as Christophe Josse. The French designer...

Lefranc.Ferrant FW2010

Jul 06, 10 Lefranc.Ferrant FW2010

To start, I must confess that by duty I always try to watch shows closely and criticaly in order to fully convey the atmosphere there. To describe the collection in a way so that the reader will feel herself at my place. But this time I was just a woman who wanted to buy the entire collection, to lock it in the closet but also, of...

Christophe Josse

Jun 11, 10 Christophe Josse

Being introduced to the “Christophe Josse” fashion house at the last spring-summer haute couture fashion week, I fell in love with both –designer and the brand. With designer because Monsieur Josse embodied the beauty of France and national style and with the brand because the clothes designed by Christophe closely represent...
