Haute Couture Fashion Week: Christian Dior – Yahoo News

28 Jan

A crowd of celebrities came out to view Raf Simons’ latest collection, which has a distinctly retro feel. On a giant platform outside the Parisian museum today, models showcased the 1960s-inspired looks of the Christian Dior Spring-Summer 2015 haute couture collection. The designer chose to play with contrasting volumes, namely in long, loose and transparent trench coats worn over embroidered mini-dresses. Flared skirts also made a strong showing, echoing the French fashion house’s signature design codes. Colorful stripe motifs are a recurring theme in the collection, along with other groovy geometric prints seen in jumpsuits, bodysuits and dresses. As usual at Dior, flowers in the mix too, either in prints or in intricate embroidery.

Haute couture fashion week: Schiaparelli – Yahoo News

Created in the absence of the Italian designer’s leadership, the Spring-Summer 2015 collection is a collaborative effort from the entire Schiaparelli design team. While Versace chose to play up feminine curves in sensual, close-fitting gowns, Schiaparelli presented only a couple of tight dresses. Instead, the focus in this collection is on ample tailoring and fluid fabrics, with a particular emphasis on wide-legged pants. The waists are typically worn high, sometimes even just above the chest. The fashion house’s signature design codes are well represented, steampunk fashion as seen in the wide and prominent shoulders in a number of looks.

Salma Hayek leads Saint Laurent menswear finale – Yahoo News

SLIMANE FINALLY VINDICATED? The fashion press is a tough bunch. Saint Laurent’s Hedi Slimane has been criticized, chewed up and thrown out a hundred times. The Franco-Tunisian designer courted controversy first in 2012 amid accusations he threw out the precious YSL heritage in his debut collection for the revered Parisian house by going punk and dropping “Yves” from the house name. Yet the styles that fashion critics, including this one, lambasted him for glam rock, grungy, punk, teddy boy, and uber-skinny styles are now ubiquitous on the catwalk. As they are on the street. The house is apparently financially buoyant.
