Spring 2013 Couture FavoriteMonday, January 28, 2013
It's no longer a secret that Elie Saab is every fashionista's favorite. The beadwork, of course, is his signature, this season made in shade-on-shade silvery and golden embroideries on lace and the beautiful tulles and silk. When it comes to Haute Couture, Saab has always been my top choice.
Versace fashion show somehow always caught my attention in each different season. This time, with Donatella's futuristic style, managed to get attention with the mix of silver and gold embellishment. Each piece has its uniqueness but the short-in-front/long-in-back dress in neon chiffon and the Xena warrior dress amazed me the most.
Magical. One word that can express Valentino haute couture. Their embroidery and crystal beading is so finely build into the layers of tulle and chiffon that they become completely essential to the design. Valentino under Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli never fails to make people smile.
First thing that popped out in my mind when I look at this show in Instagram is that the cool edgy design of the runway! I wonder how many rehearsals it took to make everything goes perfectly. All the couture pieces got elements of Art Deco with rich color palettes such as reds and oranges. The huge balloon skirt somehow reminds me of Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the city 2.
