My Favourite Looks From Paris Couture 2015

Granted, the Paris couture 2015 Spring season is not over yet, but I couldn’t resist sharing my favourite looks so far anyway!

Whilst it’s hard to imagine a life where this manner of clothing feels appropriate (forget about accessible!) I always love checking in on the couture shows regardless. Call me old fashioned, but I passed on many of the more daring couture looks, and felt more at ease appreciating the style of designs I’ve selected below..

1. Giambattista Valli

All images:  Above: A complete confection! The ultimate “poofy” skirt, boasting layers of tulle in watermelon pink is offset by a narrow strip of bodice. Loving the lace veils throughout this collection. The pale pretty makeup and luminous skin is sublime.
A considerably more vampish outfit (a fur cape is not for the wallflower!) A supremely elegant statement regardless.

A gorgeous, classy gown where youthful embroidery is offset by technical excellence – draping and folding.

Too pretty for words. I can imagine the daughter of a Russian oligarch stepping out in this mega-pretty ensemble.

Historical references, ruffles and frills made modern via sheer lace and contrast undergarments.

The luxurious staging: soft carpet runway and French doors are offset by a futuristic mirrored ceiling.


2. Atelier Versace

An abstract mod Rock and Roll look to be sure. 

A completely eye-catching “modern” couture gown which we’ll likely spot on a red carpet in the very near future! (Does anyone else think the model looks like Uma Thurman?)

An abundance of intricate beading on a daringly nude lace backdrop (wear with caution)

Not exactly my preferred couture look, but I appreciate the mastery in the design and the newness of the concept. Karlie Kloss looks fierce!


3. Alexis Mabille

Love the boldness of this approach and the expert contouring of the fabric. Very Oscars.

The oversized bow is surely a satirical gesture? However, I admire it’s architecture, the very “paris couture” feeling it evokes, and this outfit’s perfectly-matched palette. 

4. Chanel


As always, please feel free to share your views in the comments below! Are you a couture traditionalist like me, or do you prefer looks that are more on the cutting edge?

    Such a pretty ‘story’ – even the pantsuits have a prettiness to them.

    I like the third one – I prefer more classic looks.

    The Uma Thurman dress is so beautifull and the first dress is stunning.
