Obsessions#7

I am always enthusiastic about Haute Couture collections, but this time my “obsessed me” was resoundingly touched by the Haute Couture creations. As a result, I collected the garments that woke up my obsessive instincts and here we are!

• First of all, it was Raf Simons for Christian Dior. “A shift was happening”, as Raf, himself, said.

I was so proud and thrilled! He managed to marry his aesthetics with Dior’s history. And that’s what I call success! I won’t copy – paste every single creation, even though my heart is tearing to pieces.

Extra hint: this dress – trousers combination is absolutely stunning.

• It’s a fact; Elie Saab recreates the same silhouettes, still dazzling. To be honest, I felt a little bit bored, but I couldn’t resist!

• Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles! Giambattista Valli proves that Haute Couture is when designers create unique garments in the realm of their fantasy. This is how fairies in Giambattista’s dreams, look like. Hmm, cute (?!)

Some extra backstage photos: 

• You think you know what to expect from Ricardo Tisci, but you don’t! Maybe, the setting and the poses are almost the same each season, but the props always surprise you! So do the creations! Easily recognizable, it seems that Tisci found his communication code for Givenchy.

• “Regal beauty” said Pier Paolo Piccioli. Indeed! Drawing inspiration from 19th century, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli created a collection for Valentino with delicate materials, based on blue, even though the fashion house originally reads red. Not to mention, the traditional Valentin-ish romantic aura, hovering on the air.
