Couture Autumn 2009...

I thought it was about time I had a little browse over the beautiful couture that has graced the catwalk this Summer, for Autumn 2009. As always I was expecting to be blown away by what was on display, and I wasn't disappointed. Anyway here is the pick of the crop:

Karl has once again delivered an extremely eclectic collection. My particular favourites are the structured jackets and the use of a fuller skirt. These pieces could be taken off of the catwalk and toned down with something from your own wardrobe. I'd match a Chanel jacket with some leather pants and killer heels.

Jean Paul Gaultier produces some amazing shapes with the clothing he produces. This can be said for his current couture collection. The use of a variety of different materials also adds volume to his collection. The coat Erin is modelling above is certainly an amazing silhouette to look out for this autumn.

John as always produces a collection for Dior which screams luxury. The mixture of the 1950's and an air of the boudoir mean this couture collection really packs a punch. His use of fuchsia pink and leopard print in his collection bring the luxury while the silks and muted colours brings a risque nature with a look of quality underwear about it.

Ah, Givenchy. This collection oozes quality and to own a piece of this couture is sure to be an amazing investment. The dress in the middle above has studded detailing which adds an almost rock 'n' roll edge to this collection, without loosing the element of elegance at the same time.


The muted tones through out this collection are beautiful. The fabric on each of these garments are of the upper most quality. I especially like the shapes used on some of the shoulders, I like a good shoulder pad or a frill. I love the jacket on the model third from left, I don't think I'd ever have the guts to wear all the white though. You know that would end up so dirty!
