Mesdames, Messieurs: Haute Couture!!

Soon after the curtain had closed over the prêt-à-porter shows, Paris gave us the wonder of wonders: Haute Couture F/W 2010/2011. And we, humble fashion followers, could only rub our eyes in seeing so much beauty on display, thanks to Their Highnesses such as Lagerfeld, Valentino, Armani and above all Galliano for Dior.


Just few words to give you an overview of the show and then the pictures will speak for themselves.

Location: a room of Musèe Rodin. Scenography: stems, leaves and petals tower over a total white background that some journalists described as Galliano's' little shop of horrors (!). To my eyes instead, it looked like a scene from Alice in Wonderland with those singing, merry flowers that she meets following the White Rabbit.

FLOWER POWER, IN FULL EFFECT!

And Galliano too conjures up wonders and makes us dream with wide volumes on the waist and neck line, bright colours, gaudy combinations and refined tailoring.




I do agree with Franca Sozzani then, in saying, well...screaming: " COUTURE? YES!"

In fact, thanks to Haute Couture, not only can we, ordinary fashion addicts, dream and be inspired, but above all research can carry on as well - into fabrics, prints, new shapes, colours and styles - and into tailoring skills and creativity that give 'sap' ( just to remain with botanics) to prêt-à-porter .
