THE BEST OF: Couture S/S 2015

Surreal florals, Shakespearean romance, mid-riffs, oh my!


Inspired by the romanticism Shakespearean era, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo's collection symbolized all the elements of love through a neutrals, blood reds, midnight blues, and embroidery. Chiuri and Pierpaolo were also captivated by the paintings of Marc Chagall, whose Russian ancestry was shown through the embellishments and appliqu├ęd flowers. The designers kept to the traditional touch of Valentino glamour, with these sophisticated, intricate, and gold-molten beauty. With gowns of tulle, smocks, and and pinafores, this collection will make any girl swoon.

Giambattista Valli

By infusing the styles of icons Janis Joplin and Coco Chanel, Valli created a collection of collaboration and contrast. Neutrals, neons, femininity and edge are what makes up the visual aesthetic of this collection. The Coco Chanel influence showing through the little jackets and suits that were originally inspired by menswear. Jopin's style comes through in the skirts over the pants, and the silhouettes. Overall, Valli's Spring collection has embodied elegance through voluminous skirts, a contrasting color palette and sheer pieces.


Floral, neons and whites in Spring? Not at all shocking, but Karl Lagerfeld's designs brings an mesmerizing edge to these traditional trends. The surreal botanical designs featured on the tulle of dress, shoulders and mid riffs of pieces. These looks amplified the look of Spring through these  pieces. Tweed neon suits, sheer dresses, bare midriffs, and classic sun hats had also made a debut on the runway. The classic Chanel style shined through the head pieces, suits and cropped jackets. The skirts had were given a youthful twist, as they were lowered to expose midriff. This reimagined botanical garden has proved to be one of the most exquisite collection of Couture week.

Stephane Rolland

Liquid gold,  black tulle, and crisp whites, make up the palette of Stephane Rolland's Spring collection. Full skirts, two pieces and bold statement shoulders reigned on the runway. A classic avant garde beauty through metallics, cutaways, and sheer panels. These pieces give off a breathe of fresh air for this couture week as we are a little smothered with the floral and neon motifs of other designers.

Christian Dior

Saving the best for last, Raf Simons has taken couture to an unlikely (but definitely forgivable) level: plastic. From the plastic layers of imprinted florals, to the thigh high skin tight boots this material had dominated the collection but we totally don't regret that. Simon's muse was David Bowie whose style was shown through with color, vinyl and pop. With the classic tufted skirts, wide legged trousers, pantsuits, the collection embodies a classic Dior beauty twisted by Spring motifs.
