PARIS HAUTE COUTURE…OH LA LA!

Parigi Haute Couture Fashion Week Jan. 2014 is now the past…and it sure was a glorious display of Haute Couture in all shapes and forms.
So I have now decided when I finally go to my imaginary red carpet extravaganza event ;) these are definitely my top 2 go-to couture designers…
Stunniiiiing!!!

1. VALENTINO COUTURE

Check out the fantastic details going on chez Valentino Couture. I CRAZY LOVE the finale tiger gown ! The animal flair was definitely a pleasant surprise this season at Valentino Couture. This matched with simply draped silk marocain dresses, cashmere and lace on the “stage” of an opera inspired theme. Flawless, as usual!

2. ELIE SAAB COUTURE

Ooooh Mr. Saab…you did it again! Inspired by the nineteenth-century Dutch painter Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Saab presented these idyllic fairy-goddess floor length gowns, in a dream-like display of pastels. And ofcourse we can not ignore his exquisite signature embroideries and appliques. Simply divine! A couple gowns reminded me a little of Georgia O’Keeffe. Like this gorgeous first one below. Don’t you think?

2. LENA HOSCHEK

The exquisite details and the marriage of cult/folkloric and 50´s silhouettes…gorgeous! She definitely has her own thing going here. However, this season – FW14, Hoschek brings it up a notch, adding a more sexy flair to the label with lace and transperancy matched with a modern elegance. Not sure if I would wear the transparent pieces myself, but I sure do love the additional boldness.

FelippaK_FW14I have been a long time fan of Filippa K’s modern-chic minimalism. From day to evening, you can never go wrong with this one. It is simply timeless. LOVE!
