Kicking off Paris Fashion Week, Anthony Vaccarello gives his signature punk staples, a red carpet glamour. As Vaccarello gives a leather strapless dress with cutouts. Futuristic ruffles embellish a leather dress. While a leather jacket gets paired with feminine accents, such as: tweed, knits, and in silohouettes such as a trench coat.
As cutouts have been dominating the Spring runways at shows like: Cushnie et Ochs, Versace, Anthony Vaccarello, and Gucci; Christian Dior Creative Director, Raf Simons, decides to take the staple to his most recent Haute Couture collection, the Futuristic Way. Simons gives a Classic daytime ensemble, that I’d picture myself wearing on a Summer day for a lunch time gathering or tea or to Church, Chic and modern ruffles and circular cutouts. Along with a white floor length evening gown, draped in identical circular cutouts. Besides cutouts as key in the collection, Simons seems to incorporate another important element, which seems to go well with cutouts: structure. Strapless sheer gowns get a pointed texture. A basic, Ladylike Little Navy Dress gets circular cutouts, and then placed with jewels as embellishments, giving the collection this such fun and Chic character. And as solid hues and different textures may seem to be key, Simons incorporates a floral printed trench and scarf, here and there, for that extra dosage of floral print.
Now texture and structure may seem new to most during the Haute Couture season. Raf Simons most definately keeps us all lusting over our heels for his latest pieces. Especially since the cutouts and structure get a more Elegant and Couture like twist, similar to the contagiously obsessive JW Anderson Spring 2014 collection. This is actually not the first time that I’ve noticed Simons working his Magic with cutouts and structure; as he does so in his Pre-Fall collection released nothing but 3 days ago. Now what I think that most people want to know is what Jennifer Lawerence, muse to Simons, will be sporting at the Oscars, come February.
Like his Resort collection, Balmain‘s Olivier Rousteing gives Balmain’s signature edgy and Rock and Roll style, a more Feminine and Romantic twist. Using prints of Houndstooth and lace, and feathers, Rousteing pairs them with Edgy chains, Baggy suits, and even monochrome checkered print. Adding a very Hip Hop and Rock and Roll vibe. The perfect way to add a little touch of Hip Hop and Rock and Roll, even to the most feminine pieces. And who isn’t obsessed with those Sexy feathered Cotillion like gowns?
