PARIS HAUTE COUTURE FASHION WEEK 2014: Most memorable moments

From manipulative silhouettes to exquisite beading, Paris Fashion week once again succeeds to never disappoint. Fashion Week kicked off with a fabulous start on Sunday, the 6th of July resulting in a fierce fashion fever to hit the globe. Designers continuously had us on the tip of our chairs staring and gawping at the spectacular masterpieces being showcased.

With awestruck eyes and defeated expectations we give a great, big salute to all the designers, photographers, media, street style divas and especially the organizers of this eventful week for giving fashion the opportunity to thrive.

Paris Fashion Week 2014 was a week filled with monumental moments worthy for being stated. Here are some of these golden moments that had all of the fashion world gawping in silence:

Giambattista Valli reincarnated last seasons pajama-styled tops with flamboyant breathtaking full skirts.Giambattista Valli 42, 44, 45 Giambattista Valli 38, 32, 36

 

 

Christian Dior wooed the crowd with a series of romantic Renaissance-inspired pannier-styled silhouettes that later evolved into futuristic slick jumpsuits and gold-embroidered coats.Christian Dior

 

 

Zuhair Murad VS Elie Saab
It simply is not possible to choose between these two designers. Both Murad’s and Saab’s collections showcased some of this season’s most astonishing evening wear. From cut-out silhouettes to fur collared silk gowns, every girl dreams of owning one of these beauties.

Bouchra Jarrar

Bouchra Jarrar presented a slick and elegant collection. Full of mystery, this collection reflects the sophisticated style of Jarrar’s inner Parisian: the detached, skeptical of trends, and fixated on developing the refinements of a chic, tomboyish uniform. Everything she does evolves from the biker jacket, the trench coat, and tailored pants, with which she’s developed signatures—the flourish of her asymmetric lapels; the scrolled peplum attached to a cinched-in belt; diagonal zippers. 00040h_426x639-horz 00210h_426x639-horz

(drumroll)
None other than CHANEL!

Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel collection, Silhouettes, was a show filled with excellence and exquisite taste begging for attention and to its desire, it certainly received way more than deserved. Karl Lagerfeld sure knows what he is doing (not that anyone has ever doubted him). Chanel showcased a wide variety of outfits each with its own unique and respectable beauty. Fine detail and tailoring manifested the classic and passionate style of Chanel. Bejeweled and beaded garments had the audience bedazzled. Karl Lagerfeld closed the Chanel presentation with the pregnant model Ashleigh Good at his side, the fashion set began to wonder if the big-belly thing was poised to take shape as a new look.01090h_426x639-horz 01400h_426x639-horz 01600h_426x639-horz asdChanel 23-horz Chanel 55-horz

Valentino Rockstud Pumps

Edgy, yet sophisticated.10481382_10202693126357782_8503635904624881021_n

I now can confess that true love has finally knocked on my door.

And  it was love at first sight.

It ‘s been a while now since I’ve lost my mind (and heart) to the  fantasizing over these beauties.

 

These Valentino Rockstud pumps have been dominating the streets since their striking debut at the Paris runway show back in 2010. Design duo daredevils, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Picciolo, took a giant leap of faith when they made a daring 180º turn from the norm presenting the world with a fresh new and classic look: the Valentino Rockstud Collection.

10299127_10202693122597688_6957714992685739305_n-vertBack then, during the time of the Rockstud pump’s first appearance, the norm of desire were considered to be overpowering, grotesque, bulky and sculptural shaped shoes. Women prefered parading around in killer heels that reached a towering height of about 5 inches or more.

Chiuri&Picciolo presented the rebel 2.5-inch heel by pairing it with a pretty, little elegant dress. Though these shoes did not seem to be very outrageous, the sophisticated and classic pump soon became a trending irruption in the fashion industry. The now, very famous Rockstud pump – a classic, pointy-toed design toughened with gold pyramid studs – has the whole of fashion awe-strucked.

From a wide variety of shoes, purses, sunglasses, leather goods, jewelry and accessories,Valentino’s Rockstud collection is sure to be one of the most recognizable accessory lines to
conquer the streets. The superb collection’s all-time favorited item, the Rockstudded Pump, features in a wide variety of heel heights, colors and textures. Its distinct and sophisticated look is desired by all shoe-, fashion- and stud lovers: a must-have worth splurging on.

SILHOUETTES

by KARL LAGERFELD

WE’RE used to seeing the grandest of sets from Mr Lagerfeld when it comes to a Chanel show (his supermarket sweep for ready-to-wear being one of his most memorable yet), but today this was all pared right back down for a space in the Grand Palais that was simply a white room accompanied by a virtual fireplace and a glass mirror over its mantelpiece.

But it was the ideal setting when it came to showing off Lagerfeld’s skills – this is a designer who is at his best when he does something very glamorous and slightly historical. So he gave us his Artful Dodger best for a collection that presented beautiful urchin girls who brought his 18th Century references (most noted in the regal embroidery of many a frock coat) right up to date with ribbon-tie flip-flop flats in place of last season’s couture trainers.

The girls took to the catwalk with quiffs and caps on the back of their heads and short pantaloons, which even came worn under little short suits and coats – this was a couture riff on a Charles Dickens classic from start to finish.

Everything was intricately embroidered or boasted sequins or crystals – across bodices, or jackets, smatterings of gold climbing up hems or clustering at collars, dancing around necklines and straps. The level of fabrication perfectly showed off the special couture skills that this house has at its disposal and it was a delight to see on display.

For cocktail attire there came a strong focus on trapeze shapes, gentle A-lines for skirts and dresses that spanned a palette of smoky greys (mimicked also in the make-up tones), off-white, pale gold, navy and black. Bags were like satchels and though used sparingly made for another clever modern note.

And while there won’t be a woman out there who wouldn’t not dream of stepping out in one of those serious gowns to end, we can’t help but know the real story here will end up being those flip-flop-style flats. Comfortable couture.
