PARIS HAUTE COUTURE WEEK S/S’2015: DAY 4
Day 4 of Paris Haute Couture Week witnessed spring in full bloom. From Viktor and Rolf’s floral frenzy to Elie Saab’s ethereal collection, designers delivered dreams on the runway with fine handcrafted garments that were nothing less than perfection.
Elie Saab: The designer known to make every woman’s dream come true did nothing but the same this season. Inspired from him region, Beirut, the Lebanese designer brought about the soft glamour of the 60’s. He conjured a beautiful dream from feathers, sequins and sheer silk. The collection possessed soft romantic pastel shades like pink, steel blue, cream and white. From boat neck to deep plunge lines, the collection had an array of gowns and short dresses that seemed to have come straight from a Disney movie. Some of the highlights of the collection were gowns that had different fabrics dyed and embellished individually to form a patchwork resembling a floating butterfly. The show ended on a spectacular note with an ethereal embellished pastel pink gown with a slight dusting of coral pink and yellow- green.
Viktor & Rolf: The collection presented by the designer-duo was all about funky bright colors added to a base dark blue floral print. The color scheme comprised of shades like white, ink-blue, light blue, yellow, red and green. The collection started with a hint of color, gradually getting brighter with an increased asymmetrical volume. From floral print to 3-D flowers, this particular collection with a riot of color and flowers brought about a floral frenzy. The look was accessorized with thick-soled flip-flops to complete the look. What really caught our attention was the experimentation with the straw hat and the wheat stalk.
