Dreamy looks from the FW 18-19 Haute Couture fashion shows

09 . 07 . 2018 by Redazione

Paris Haute Couture Week has once again fascinated the world with enchanting and exciting fashion shows. Autumn-Winter 2018-19 dresses really seem to come out of a fairy tale. They are precious, harmonious, regal but at the same capable of surprising because they incarnate a conscious and well-defined, cosmopolitan and dynamic femininity, made for today’s woman without losing anything of that magic that characterizes the Haute Couture.

Maria Grazia Chiuri is perhaps the key representative of this woman, suspended between past and present. In her collection for Christian Dior, she reinterprets the codes of the maison, focusing on tailoring and sinuous shapes, but making them more current through fluid and light fabrics, emphasized by nude hues and transparencies.

Clare Waight Keller pays tribute to Hubert de Givenchy, founder of the Givenchy fashion house, who recently passed away, reinterpreting his famous silhouettes and sophisticated taste through strong colour contrasts, complex asymmetric cuts and spectacular three-dimensional textures.

Precious elements that can also be found on Giambattista Valli catwalk, who makes his ideal young muse wearing short tweed and feather sheath dresses, high-waisted trousers with bow top, but also ruffle and tulle dresses that show off the legs without giving up a train.

On the other hand, Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel celebrates the beauty of Paris by bringing on the catwalk a show with a thousand shades of grey recalling the roofs and buildings of the French city, enriched with sparkling appliqués. Undoubtedly worn by the Parisian woman par excellence that knows how to transform with great ease a tweed suit into a sensual outfit thanks to strategic zip and innovative cuts.

Armani Privé, instead, proposes contrasts between light and shadow but also black and white, making them the main detail of  sartorial, almost sculptural cuts, which then lead to colourful evening dresses rich in juxtapositions and feathers.

Colour combined with spectacular silhouettes is a trademark also seen at Valentino. Pierpaolo Piccioli proposes a charming woman with an absolutely chic style who is not afraid of wearing important volumes and saturated shades, being fully aware of her beauty. Once again underlining the strong link between Haute Couture and dream.
