For many of us it is one of the most highly anticipated and favorite fashion weeks of all year… And of course, it has to be in Paris, it always is!
From July 6th to july 11th, 2014; the Haute Couture and Couture maisons settled in the City of Lights ignited our greatest fantasies with the most beautiful craftsmanship possible through these days.
Especially the members (official ones and guests) of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, simply turned our inner fashion world around… Mmmmmm…
Here some of the best seen on the runways…
Who would think that the ‘apparent nudity’ of very revealing looks would become so exquisitely elegant… Delicate see-through fabrics crafted with wonderful and thorough detailing left high fashion lovers enchanted, speechless… Pure perfection!

TOTAL ROMANTIC SURRENDER
Many of these couturiers seemed to have surrendered to a magnificent, idilic and magical romance; creating beautiful ultra-feminine silhouettes and volumes in soft colors, with wonderful embellishments over superb fabrics such as laces, silks… Uffff… A clear invitation to fall and stay in love eternally!

PASSIONATE RED FOLLIE
Looks in RED were among the most spectacular fashion statements seen on the runways… A protagonist RED became a reminder that we ought to live with intense passion, ‘amour fou’, and of course, good taste! (Images: Viktor & Rolf, Giorgio Armani Privé, Giambattista Valli & Valentino)
EXTRAORDINAIRE ARTISTIC VOLUME
Fantastic artistry was highlighted with extravagant and majestic playful volumes, that added the ‘extraordinaire vigueur’ we all expected through great furs, inmense and/or rigid shapes… Amazing! (Dice Kayek, Alexandre Vauthier, Jean Paul Gaultier & Elsa Schiaparelli)
IRRESISTIBLE BLACK AND WHITE PERFECTION
Yes… Black & White forever and ever; a ‘must’ when glamour, elegance, chicness and style call. In light or heavier fabrics and silhouettes; sometimes all-in-black, sometimes all-in-white, sometimes as a couple… It is certainly quite impossible not to find absolute beauty in our favorite B&W! (Chanel, Atelier Versace, Zuhair Murad & Alexis Mabille)
