Some couturiers seem to have copped on to the fact that no-one can afford it anymore and have moved towards a more theatrical, creative collection. A 'no-one can afford to wear it so let's design stuff that no-one will wear' sort of attitude. Suits me grand. I love a good show. Although, I probably would wear all of it. Slave to fashion or wha. Others have reigned it in. Gone to basics and simple designs that aren't going to overwhelm anyone. To be honest, if I'm going to part with multiple grands, I'd need to be fairly overwhelmed.
Couture Fall 2010
Jean Paul Gaultier
What wouldn't you give to be Gaultiers muse. She looks like she has an incredible life. To me it's Catherine Baba, I could see her in all of this. I'm anti smoking and all, but god that looks cool. Choices of fabrics, everything about this is just aspirational and really sensational.
So very, very..., Armani. Carmen Kass stood out so much. Apart from Karlie Kloss it's rare that I notice a model during the first flick through, but she looks fantastic. I think that also says a lot about the clothes, they're easily overlooked. Pretty and chic, but a little safe.
I'd declare disgust over the boots but, I don't doubt, in a matter of hours I'll want a pair. That's the beauty of Chanel. The arms kind of remind me of Woody's from Toy Story, ya know where he gets stitched back up? Yeah... That red dress has Grace Coddington written all over it so keep an eye out for it on the pages of US Vogue.
The silhouettes are incredible. Possibly the most raved about collection of this season. I'm gonna be married in one of these babies, you'll see...you'll all see.
A pretty dress is definitely his niche. Doesn't disappoint, not a trouser in sight. Some of them are breathtaking. Fairytale worthy.
Saving the best for last...
This, my lovely readers, is a show.
