I truely feel in love with couture after watching ‘Dior and I’ for the first time. The movie follows Raf Simmons creating his first couture collection for Dior. I was mesmerised by the detail and beauty of the pieces and the insane amount of work that went into every piece in the collection. Every year since watching it, I eagerly await the collections, not only from Dior but every house that creates couture, and every year I am astounded by the craftsmanship and beauty of every collection. This year is no different, my favourite shows this year include; Ralph and Russo, Chanel, Christian Dior, Elie Saab and Victor and Rolf.
Ralph and Russo: When I first came across Ralph and Russo I was blown away by how beautiful every collection they produce is, and still to this day every collection is stunning! Here are a few of my favourite pieces from the show.
Chanel: For a long time I’ve found Chanel very underwhelming, which is not a word usually put next to Chanel. But every collection I saw was either too much or not enough and could never quite hook me. This years collection had me hook, line and sinker. The collection can be described simply, as beautiful and elegant. By mixing classic silhouettes with modern details Chanel had created a stunning collection.
Christian Dior: As mentioned earlier, Dior is my absolute favourite brand, and always shows a stunning collection. This show was new creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut couture collection. Although the collection isn’t my favourite Dior show, I still love the whimsical, forest feel.
Elie Saab: Elie Saab has always been a favourite of mine, every fashion week they create a stunning collection, covered in beads and beautiful detail. This collection of course being no different, was a parade stunning pieces.
Viktor & Rolf: For this years collection, Victor & Rolf used old pieces to create their new looks. An amazing idea that I think is extremely creative, and a great way to represent the past while looking to the future simultaneously.
And that’s a wrap! Thank you all for reading – Emma xx
