Paris Fall 2011 Couture Part 3

Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture

Paris Fall 2011 Couture Week is done. I was holding off on writing this post because I wanted to include the Alaia show with it, but the photos are being released very slowly. I really want to see that show. I guess I will have to check on that later.

Anyway, Elie Saab always designs beautiful shows, and this show was not an exception. Every piece that went down that runway was beautiful, elegant, and sparkly. The clothes sparkled like ornately decorated wedding cakes. The detailing was intricate and beyond amazing. John Paul Gaultier showed a collection that was vastly different from Saab’s, yet it was still great. His tailoring skills are beyond! Those trenches and suits did me in. Love, love, love it!

The theme for Maxime Simoens’ couture collection was Nosferatu. When I see that word, I think of vampires, and not those wack Twilight ones. I didn’t see much vampiric themes in this collection, but I did see edgy tailoring and fringe. I want to research this designer more because I like what I see. I feel like I saw him in a documentary at the beginning of the year. Hmm.

Pier Paolo Picciolo and Maria Grazia Chiuri did an awesome job at Valentino this week. I am noticing that this sheer fabric trend that has been happening the past couple of seasons is not going away. It is so weird because it is sheer dressing on long, covered up fabrics. It is kind of backwards sexually when you think of it. Anyway Chiuri and Picciolo are doing a great job with sheer fabrics. What are you thoughts on the couture season? Photos from Style.com.

  3. Nice a Nosferatu reference! haha perhaps they were going for the gorgeous blonde from the movie rather than the vampire? Damsel in distress? But yeah I don’t get it much either…
