The Highlights of Couture Spring 2018
From seeing double at Margiela's show to Vauthier's rectangular bedazzled sunglasses— this year's couture was extra rebellious.
Christian Dior Haute Couture Spring 2018
Dior’s latest couture show was a surrealist affair. Fishnets stockings were paired over sandals, dresses were veiled by peacock feathers and structure was created by braided horsehair—all under the lights of the Rodin Museum in Paris. Below, our show notes on the collection.
Azzaro Couture Spring 2018
Maxime Simoëns presented his second collection for Azzaro, the legendary French fashion house in Paris during couture week. True to the brand’s celebrity following of the past (Sophia Loren, Raquel Welch and Marisa Berenson), his pieces were all about glamour. Think: high-shine metallic blazers for men, purple feather boa jackets, and sequined pants. Below, our show notes on the collection.
Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture Spring 2018
Alexandre Vauthier, the couturier known for dressing Rihanna, Bella Hadid and Caroline Vreeland in addition to a host of other cool girls just presented his Spring 2018 couture collection. Staying true to the designer’s aesthetic, the draped minidresses, ruffled tops and skintight pants felt like they were made for the bold celebrity styles plates of the world. Below, our show notes on the collection.
Viktor & Rolf Couture Spring 2018
For Viktor & Rolf’s Spring 2018 couture collection, the designer duo made every single piece out of a single fabric: Japanese technical satin duchesse. All garments were cut on the bias, and the models wore exaggerated flower and leaf themed headpieces. Below, our show notes on the collection.
