If someone of us had to define this Paris Haute Couture spring/summer 2015, we would say three simple words: romanticism, modernity and lightness.
Anytime we speak about the Haute Couture, we expect sensational outfits we are used to see only in two particular occasions, on runways and on the Red Carpet, delightfully wearing by international celebrities.
Paris Haute Couture started on Sunday 25th January and ended on Thursday 29th January. Each day designers astonished their audience with original proposals for the next season. We have chosen to tell you about it, showing runways of historical brands representing each day of the week.
Day 1: ATELIER VERSACE
Emoticons and emotions: this is the Atelier Versace fashion show. Arrows and other texts symbols appear on outfits and shoes on the runway sending a great amount of emotion to the audience. Curved cuts, asymmetric lines that go along with the physique of the wonderful models such as the famous Eva Herzigova. Colors: black and white are a “must”, but also red, electric blue, neutral and silver.
Day 2: CHRISTIAN DIOR
Inside a temporary structure built on the garden of the Musée Rodin, Raf Simons expressed again his own idea about this luxury brand. Since 2012, he has tried to show an idea of contemporaneity that always recalls past successes. A kind of futurist vision of the Sixties and the Seventies. Plastic coats but also circle skirts and psychedelic prints in order to express the romanticism of past years and the grit of modern ages.
Day 3: CHANEL
It’s spring time! Colors are the true protagonists of this show. From shiny tonalities to pastel ones. Outfits seem to bloom as spring flowers. Floral details are everywhere, from coats up to hats that look like reals sculptures. The historical tweed is a must but it’s modernized in a contemporary key with short jackets and circle skirts. And also long outfits with trousers or tube skirts. Transparencies and fringes are other fundamental elements of the collection.
Day 4: VALENTINO
Love, love and again love. This word reigns all over the Valentino fashion show. Love is in the air, love is on outfits, love is in melodies. With this collections, the two creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri e Pier Paolo Piccioli, have tried to clothe love itself. “L’Ange Noir” opens the show, a black velvet long dress with back wings, “L’Ecuyère à la jupe fleurie”, linen outfits embroider with Russian motifs and the last one, “Amor vincit omnia”, that is not only a dream dress but it is a real invite to love perfect to introduce the final song, “A te” by Jovanotti.
Day 5: ZUHAIR MURAD
Pure femininity expressed through pastels, tantalizing slits and plunging necklines. This is the Haute Couture collection presented by Zuhair Murad in Paris. Light textiles and seductive transparencies are perfect to emphasize the beauty and the personality of this woman who manages to mix elegance and sensuality in the right way. Delicate pastel flowers embellish the most wonderful and romantic creations, such as the last bridal gown that close the fashion show with a train, perfect for a real princess.
