haute couture

Hi bloggers! Again, sorry about the delay; It has been a hectic week and hopefully once I'm all settled in and classes start I'll figure out where to put blogging into my schedule!! Anyway, from January 24th to January 28th it was the Spring 2010 Haute Couture week in Paris! The shows were all wonderfully amazing, and I wanted to share my favorites with you!

#1. Chanel - A mixture with of futuristic tones and romantic feels, the Chanel Couture collection was an amazing collection of detail and shine. It focused on silvers and pastels, and featured no black or gold, a first for Karl Lagerfeld. It was definitely my favorite of the season, especially since silver and pastels are two of my favorite things (I really don't wear gold!) These are my favorites from the collection!





#2. Christian Dior - For this collection, John Galliano was inspired by the Charles James gowns at the Costume Institute at the MET. With the feel of a woman who rides, the pieces feature top hats and veils and beautiful cuts. I love the vintage feel of it all, and all the red really stands out when pastels are taking over the runway! The detailed jewelry picture really amazes me, too.





#3. Elie Saab - I loved the dream-like feel of Elie Saab's gowns in this couture collection. The dresses were all romantic, in the pale pastels that we've been seeing on the runway but with a bit more dusty tones. Also, he decided not to use jewelry and natural hair/make-up. So the dresses stand out even more. I loved the beading and lace detailing on the dresses!

In other news, the wonderful Sarah from The Buzz on Fashion gave me a blog award! I'm so so thankful :) Definitely check out her blog, she gives you all the "buzz" on the fashion world and does cute outfit interpretations too! I'm supposed to pass it on to 15 other bloggers but I can't really think right now so I'm going to pass it on to a few blogs I think you guys should check out!!

Also, I won the Hi Fashion giveaway!! Sherin and Leia celebrated their one-year-blogaversary recently and in the spirit gave out these cute little polka-dot coin purses!

  9. Karl Lagerfeld's reply to the 'futurist reading' of his collection has made it into my favourite quotes. He may be a little strange but he is a genius in my books!

    Also, Elie Saab has me totally captivated, I adored his collection! Loved all of it, it was so beautiful!

  16. Eli Saab was my favorite. it wasn't particularly cutting-edge design, but it was such a great example of a collection! every piece was married with such precision and grace to the others. It was sculptural in it's entirety and I adored every piece. I'm glad you liked it too! :)

  19. You could make the post twice as long and it would still be worth looking at every detail every letter three times!!

  20. Gorgeous.

    I have been reading about 'ice cream' coloured hair recently and I'm guessing the models at Chanel are perfecting it!
