From January the 19th to the 22nd, Paris was the place, it always is, where the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture allowed its few members (carefully chosen based on strict and well-defined standards) to honor by tradition the materialization of real and sublime Haute Couture… Mmmmm…
As we must know, these French Haute Couture shows in great part reveal and/or define fashion trends to come. Whether people like it or not, it is simply that way; which in my opinion is so wonderful… Paris is inevitably the ‘movable feast’ of authentic, divine, regal high fashion when it comes to HC!
Let us go through some of the trends, besides the sticky (but adorable) BLACK & WHITE favorite, seen on these SPRING/SUMMER 2014 Haute Couture breath-taking runways, we will certainly be delighted by them…
Couturiers showed their infinite love for nature... Pure flamboyance flowing through flowers, butterflies, leaves and even safari-inspired extraordinary pieces. Oh so trés magnifique for welcoming the warm up-coming weather! (Images: Valentino & Jean Paul Gaultier)
Karl just knows how to play us around, as we leave ourselves fall into his game... Yes, we love it! Sneakers in Haute Couture? Dear Karl, are you telling us to relax and be playful with fashion no matter how dressed up we are? Well... I will leave this to your imagination and desires... Have fun with that! (Images: Chanel)
Crop tops are not something new, but the way we see them here speak up pure glamour and elegance. There is nothing more attractive than the idea of showing our midriff without literally doing it. Well, I guess this time crop pieces caught me... What a lovely element of desire! (Images: Christian Dior & Giambattista Valli)
Blue, yellow, pink... PASTELS were all around to make us fall in love over and over with their luxurious sweetness. How can we not be moved by this forever-trend! (Images: Versace & Elie saab)
Sensuality is calling our name... It is so clear that this time METALLIC BLUE should be a companion in our fashion spring/summer journey. This enchanting color always lends us its magic, since there is no lady that would not look uh-mazing wearing it! (Images: Jean Paul Gaultier & Giambattista Valli)
Probably my favorite... Uffff... CAPES or CAPE-LIKE DRESSES... Long, midi or short, they are those magnificent pieces our wardrobes are screaming for. CAPES look incredibly regal, elegant, fabulous! They are simply the perfect element we have been dreaming of! I am in love with them! (Images: Christian Dior & Valentino)
LIFE IS A RUNWAY! ENJOY IT!
