Paris Fashion Week blew it up with the endless sartorial inspiration at the glossy runway! From over-the-top couture gowns to structured dresses and power-dressing, Spring/Summer 2020 was a breath of fresh air for the vogue front and we love it!
From Givenchy and Chanel to Alexander Vautheir and Elie Saab, we saw the best of household couture fashion on the shiny aisle and we're still gaping!
Check out all the labels that made the strut count:
Clare Waight Keller called her collection for Givenchy a love letter. Just as love letters often display their authors’ emotions, Waight Keller’s runway offered ample visual extravaganza. romantic, portable protective enclaves. Turning romantic, portable art into wearable ensembles, Givenchy is giving us a heart full of vogue with their current showcase. We love!
Alexandre Vauthier's couture collection focuses on making even the most basic ensemble as a power-outfit. From basic sequins on a shirt to the embellished LBD, AV's couture showcase was all about glamour in simplicity and we love it! Tailored suits and satin gowns featuring broad shoulders and ruffles, gosh... bring it on!
Maria Grazia Chiuri, creative director of Dior, puts pressure on the fact of how there is no such thing as feminist or non-feminist dressing. Putting the creative feminine perspective on the front lines, Dior's new collection traces the grassroots of feminine expression on a platter with a smidge of added elegance and glamour. Might not be the most glamourous Dior range, but brownie points for creativity!
