Last week we made a second stop in Paris. This time around it was for Paris Couture Week.  As usual, designers presented their first-class collections for the Spring/Summer season.  The week was jammed packed with what we have come to expect from the couture world and much more. Now you know we wouldn’t leave you hanging.  Check out the collections and be sure to let us know your favorites.

It is always to interesting how Bertrand Guyon brings his own interpretation to the label.  We weren’t disappointed in the least. Our favorite looks are the cape and the heart featured jacket.

“The Kaiser” is quoted by Vogue by saying he loves feathers and they aren’t hard to miss throughout the collection.  However, they are successfully not overused.  I really like the use of the Art Deco mirrors. We also really enjoyed the matching hats paired with the classic Chanel suits. It was a nice nod to the past.

Armani Privé Spring 2017 Couture

Orange is the main colors used throughout the collection in various shades. If you are a fan of the color than you are in luck. Color choice aside the star of the collection is the 30s inspired fashion.

The designer took a different approach to couture when it came to his collection. You don’t usually think of motorcycle pant and couture together. However, it just works for this collection.

Day 4 (1/25/17)

Elie Saab Spring 2017 Couture

We were really loving this collection and not only because of its various shades of blue. The capes are gorgeously done and the beading on several looks was attention-grabbing.

Fireworks and the television show Dynasty were two of the major inspiration. Each look was more dramatic than the next yet manages not to cancel out its predecessor.

Interesting Fact- The couturier is behind Rihanna’s buzzworthy 2015 Met Gala ensemble.  
Marie-Antoinette & church murals from St. Gallen Cathedral in Switzerland are just some of the elements used in this collection.

This label is new to us but had it caught our attention.  The designer told WWD that inspiration was from her personal experiences and nothing much else.  So we think it is pretty much up to your own interpretation.

This collection marks the 1stcouture collection for the design duo.  According to Sever via WWD inspiration was pulled from the Victorian era and little-known designer Jean-Marjorie Lacroix.  Tulle and lace were two of the main fabrics used for this collection.
That’s it for Paris Haute Couture until July.  Stay tuned as we head back to Paris next month.
