It is such a delight to start a new year with all the spectacular spring/summer fashion that Couture Week in Paris delivers!
The craftsmanship shown on these runways always feels quite surreal! No exception this time. Pieces of art flowed through the catwalks, taking breaths away....
So many trends to feel inspired with.... Delicate and sumptuous gowns and suiting in sweet pastel colors, or classic black and red; much embroidery and appliqués; great metallics, theatrical feathers and ruffles, fabulous volume or simple (but lovely) flowing silhouettes; standout XL prints; mostly inspired in nature or geometry.... Every piece charged with pizzaz and character. So inviting and wonderful!
I found specially gorgeous the 3D florals and geometric patterns found in Viktor & Rolf’s collection! To me, a top one!
So, why don’t we let ourselves be taken over their enchantment, and absorb touches of these ideas in our daily outfits?!
Here some suggestions...
For the most feminine and romantic ladies... Enjoy florals all the way, through huge organic details and prints.
For the edgier ones, how about mixing and matching florals and geometric patterns?
And for those who want to play it a bit safer; just add an accessory or a single piece that recalls one or both of these elements (flowers and geometry).
It is never too early to turn our Spring mood on!
LIFE IS A RUNWAY!
