Best of Haute Couture Sring/Summer 2015 : what you should remember...

The end of the haute couture collections. A look back over three days of presentations, which showcased the exceptional and French savoir-faire. With comings and goings of limousines, celebrities, top models, and surrealist decors, Paris vibrated to the sound of fashion. A restlessness followed by a swarm of journalists, television crews, with the biggest moments, and striking images like the Garden of Eden by Chanel installed under the glass roof of the Grand Palais, with animated flowers and vibrant colours. The futuristic ship by Dior, with a play of mirrors and white scaffolding, took place under an octagonal marquee in the gardens of the Rodin Museum. Raf Simons was inspired by the past to design the future.A swarm of photographers under the steps of the Palais de Toyko ready for the VIPs who attended the incredibly popular show by Giorgio Armani. The international stars that congratulate those who always dress them with such passion. But couture is equally and above all the occasion to reveal the work of the ateliers, explore new techniques, and to attempt new volumes. With the arrival of a new generation of couturiers and the experience of the biggest houses, fashion remains a dynamic industry, a true creative pool coming from Paris, the capital that captures all the attention.Alexandre Vauthier, Yiqing Yin, Dice Kayek and Bouchra Jarrar form part of this new generation of designers who revisit the classic wardrobe for the urban women who are not only searching for an outfit for the red carpets.For the trends, it’s a summertime season which makes way for romance and to an explosion of flowers:At Elie Saab, these are the flowers of his childhood that inspired him and come to life on a number of floaty dresses.At Viktor & Rolf, the flowers in acid tones are animated by three dimensions for the sculptural dresses.At Dior, a futuristic vision, the flowers are printed onto the plastic. And at Giambattista Valli they take on new colours and a new youth with neon, the gaze delicately hidden under a veil. The veil is having a revival, which takes on the allure of a couture beanie at Chanel, the future trendy accessory after the couture trainers last season.As for Jean-Paul Gaultier, he made Naomi Campbell his flower girl. A renewal of romance, expressed with poetry by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for Valentino, with embroidered messages, for a collection where the passion is at the heart of the propositions. And when you love something price is not an issue, the couture is not only made to be looked at but also to be bought. Couture continues to make us dream…Interview: Karl Largerfeld: For example, my god, for the train on the wedding dress, it took 15 girls 1 month to create just one train. There was a girl from the Middle East who came with her mother to order it, 10 minutes ago and I’m telling you it’s not cheap…Music free of right : Bandit & NikitMusic from the show
