Fashion: Spring 2015 CoutureTuesday, 27 January 2015
Those boots, boy those boots. Instagram has been awash with them, the latex legging boots were certainly a sight to behold, as were they sequin counterparts. Raf Simons collection boasted a explosion of colour, sequins and of course a touch of 70s glamour. The psychedelic patterns and prints added to the eclectic nature of the collection. This look above reminded me a little of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman but in a good way, obviously. I'll be re-creating one of the beauty looks from this show on the blog, so keep an eye out for that!
Lagerfeld created yet another set which was made for social media - I saw a mass of pictures of his paper jungle. Chanel is the daddy of couture in my eyes, just for the sheer volume of looks that they send out. The veiled beanies were a particular high point for me, encrusted with gems adding a touch of youth to such a historic brand. The jewelled mini skirt was one of the stand out pieces for me, a touch of luxury and adding new life to the classic Chanel tweed it was teamed with.
If Chanel and Giambattista Valli are anything to go by, the veil is back! I wonder if I can pull this off, being a glasses wearer, what do you think? The 70s are certainly not going anywhere: cascading furs, pussy bow blouses and wide legs were a nod to the decade but it still felt current. This collection was ultra feminine with the abundance of florals, lace and frills. The use of proportions and layering through out this collection kept it interesting - I'm reaching for the coat, dress and trousers combo already.
