Haute couture (/ˌoʊt kuːˈtjʊər/; French pronunciation: [ot kuˈtyʁ];
French for “high sewing” or “high dressmaking” or “high fashion”) is the creation of exclusive custom-fitted clothing.
That was Wikipedia for you. In lay man’s words, Haute Couture is thousands of of artisans working day in and day out in an atelier creating the most magnificent pieces of fashion detailed the the utmost intricacy and craftsmanship. For those less informed this might just seem like an extremely overpriced clothing that is once seen on the runway, once of the Red Carpet and sent straight to the museum there after. Well, I don’t blame them. After all this all just a bunch of ‘stuff’, am I right? So let’s say there is a section of the society that actually gives a damn about Dior’s neckline and Chanel’s roots [yes, roots not boots], and this is a summed up favourites of the first two days at the Haute Couture 2018 show happening in Paris while we get cosy at our desks.
While the industry contemplates Maria Grazia Chiuri’s stay or time to bid adieu as the artistic director of this prestigious French fashion house, we’re in awe of the statement making collection bomb that they just dropped. Move on accessories, we have legit statements making it to the top of the chain this season. And somebody please drag me away from that monochrome. I don’t think I need more reasons to stick with a black and white wardrobe.
Known for the tweed and quilt, Chanel addresses it’s roots with this collection. And we might have a modern bride inspiration noticing how Kaia rocks that floral head gear with the embellishment pastel boots.
Apparently, knee high boots are here to stay! And we’re not complaining at all. The signature Giambattista ruffles have made us go wow wow wow before and let’s be honest, there is not enough ruffle in the world for us to come close to hating it. Aaaaaand thigh high slits. YAAAAS gurl I don’t think I’m ready to give up on that trend yet.
Next round coming up soon. Stay tuned!
