Valentino- Haute Couture Autumn/ Winter 2014/15 Collection

Couture is pure and sensual at Valentino.Couture is pure and sensual at Valentino. The silhouettes are slender and ethereal, crossed by straps and leather laces which sculpt the dresses, and some embroidered outfits give off a certain splendor. This seductive wardrobe is sprinkled with colours such as black, gold, white, sky blue, nude and deep red, and everything is worn with flat shoes. Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli also utilize the past in order to propel their couture towards the future. Music from the show

Jean Paul Gaultier- Haute Couture Collection Autumn/ Winter 2014/15 (with interview)

Couture vampires at Jean Paul Gaultier!At Jean-Paul Gaultier, a very exclusive haute couture is passionately revealed. Every piece of clothing, every detail and every idea pays respect to a savoir-faire and a perfect execution. Fans of his collections such as Mouna Ayoub know it and invest in this. Every collection puts on its own show and displays its couturiers’ passion, and the models that we are presented with, based on the Vampires theme, are marvelous and perched on breathtakingly high heels. Layers of muslin and pearl hairdos melt into the fresh water pearls embroidered onto large evening sheath dresses. Black, white, red and gold make a unity of colour which reinforces this autumn winter’s theme. Interview: Jean Paul Gaultier : This year it’s all about vampires, and man-eaters too! It’s still glamorous, with glamorous vampires and characters. Why vampires? Because I watch vampire films sometimes, but also because it gives me a direction in terms of colour effects. For the first time I have limited myself with the colours, I only used black, white, red obviously for the blood, silver, and gold which is more religious and mystic. They are very couture vampires, that is to say, made with beautiful materials, they are very luxurious. So my vampires go jogging, but it’s luxury jogging, I mean with sweatpants, trousers, lined silk velvet running jackets, in mink, with completely everything in bohemian crystal, embellished everywhere, and embroidered, and with knitted mink, and broaches as well. I don’t have any prints; I only have plain colours, just these colours here. I have materials such as guipure and, like I said, brooches, but they are embossed. So here I made him a dress, it’s got an imperial Wang! Music from the show

Giorgio Armani Privé- Haute Couture Autumn/ Winter 2014/15 Collection

A black and red collection at Giorgio Armani PrivĂ©. Giorgio Armani has his own customs in Paris. He showcases his Haute Couture at the Palais de Tokyo, a collection that is opened with a range of small pea jackets and shorts in patterned fabrics with a quilted effect. These are then followed by short jackets with three-quarter length sleeves and crape woolen trousers, which demonstrate a simplicity and grand elegance. Giorgio Armani emphasizes red and black for the evening, with ruffled bustier tulle dresses with red and violet black polka dots along with small accentuated red chenille motifs, or ruffled tulle dresses. He innovates through vinyl tape embroideries, and attracts attention through boleros with feathers crafted into origami motifs. And at Armani, the bride is in red and dressed in a little crinoline jacket with an organdie fringe and a crape silk bustier dress. It’s all about black and red playing contrasts and matches for this new beautiful haute couture story. Music from the show

Elie Saab- Haute Couture Collection Autumn/ Winter 2014/15 (with interview)

Shades of sequins and dresses with trains disclose the couturier’s signature style. An abundance of pearls sculpt the embroideries, such as black on a grey-blue muslin, gold on a transparent skin colour, and orange on champagne muslin. The range of tones vary ever season, though salmon pink already part of the summer 2015 colour trend, is very present from this winter on, harmonized with deep red sequins. Black is made light using transparence and sequin or bead embroideries. The bride is an apparition, as he says himself. Elie Saab focuses all of his talent onto this sublime woman, photographed on the red carpet and who can’t help but shine. He also introduces THE most princess wedding dress in this week of haute-couture. Interview: Elie Saab : I always have the magical woman in my head, it’s about embellishing the woman, that’s my biggest obsession in my career. Each time I try to present different feminine codes. This time I tried hard to emphasize every kind of embroidery, the savoir-faire of the house and especially the history of cotton and silk thread, mixed together to give this guipure lightness through the effects of the embroidery. I really try each time to show what we are known for, but in a different way. It’s a collection with a lot of dresses with pearls. They represent the lighting of evening disco balls, when you drink a little, that was the idea surrounding the pearls. And we really used this on a lot of pieces this time. Music from the show
