So Haute! Paris Spring 2013 Couture Fashion Week Pt. II

Paris Couture Fashion Week was so amazing we needed to split it into a series of blogs! There is just too much greatness to pass up!

Dior Haute Couture

Dior never disappoints during fashion week and this year definitely brought a clear point of view. One of the best parts of the show was the runway itself which gave a Tim Burton feel with the white runway contrasting with whimsical mounds of grass and tall spring blooming trees! With clean lines, structured pant suits, and asymmetrical sheer cutouts, Dior was uniquely innovative this year! With the coming of spring, there was also an abundance of floral prints that were textured with embroidery and beading. Such an interesting collection, Dior will certainly been seen on many red carpets this upcoming year!

Chanel Couture

If you really want to step into another world, just check out the Chanel Couture runway show! Such a strong point of view from designer Karl Lagerfield, this Chanel collection reflected a darker side with its signature tweed suits but also played with lace insets, cutouts, and graphic floral prints. The finale of dresses was the most indulgent part; the dresses where a silver white with beading, lace, and feathers that looked straight out of a ball from Jane Austin’s Pride and Prejudice. Paired with the rustic English natural background, this couture collection from Chanel transported us to the high society England and I didn’t want to leave! Stunning!
