Enter the fantasy world of Haute Couture.
I got to admit, they’re some prevailing trends as seen in the ready-to-wear collections such as the fur, long double-breast jackets and the reinvention of the ‘suit’. This is Paris hottest trademark, producing a few fashion pieces costing thousands of pounds; with the skilled craftsmanship of the designers and their team sewing each detail of beads. Sadly, us normal civilians wouldn’t be able to afford it but celebrities across film, television and music will rent it. Wear it once and never be worn again.
What a waste of money! LOLOL.
So what are we waiting for? Let’s ooh with wonder over my #21HauteLooks from Couture Fashion Week.

Leather crystal eyelets. Targeting the Tom Ford woman…
I got to hand it to Vauthier, his fur coats is setting off the trends that emerged from A/W Fashion Week. Nevertheless, my personal fashion treasure is black leather blazer with the eyelets. I also love how he styled graphics with crystal-beaded cardigan.
Schiaparelli introduced to us the fur clutch bag. Just in case you didn’t wear something to protect you from the cold.
The amount of gloves I’ve seen from Christian Dior, Schiaparelli, Atelier Versace, Armani Prive. Whether you like it or not, gloves are in.
Karl Lagerfield has introduced something new to his Couture youth, coat dresses with shorts! Even the messy hairdo and the bonnet hat displays a sense of rebellion but yet Couture playful. I don’t even know who would be brave enough to walk out there in the cold with sandals. Maybe celebrities at red carpet, exquisite events. Plus, check out Kendall Jenner strutting her stuff.
Viktor & Rolf
Despite many of you would think that they’ve made towelwear fashion (even though the fabric they use is different), this look reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood. As seen on their catwalk, the couture colour for this season is red. However, their collection doesn’t fit in with the Hollywood Glamour seen inElie Saab, Zahir Murad and Atelier Versace. You know, the type that can be worn for Cannes Film Festival or the biggest award ceremonies in entertainment.
There’s a vibe of fashion throughout the centuries. You have Italian designers like Versace and Valentine diving into the fashion of the fifties and in Roman Renaissance, while Vionnet and Zuhir Murad bring technical architecture into their collection. Some collections have be praised form others e.g. Elie Saab’s amazing showdown wonder of red-carpet dresses. while others have taken a break from the norm to bring inspiration elsewhere e.g. Maison Martin Margiela. Whatever/however, you feel at least we had fun in the couture fantasy.
