It's always a treat to fawn over the bi-annual Haute Couture shows. This past week was no exception. We enjoyed seeing Pierpaolo Piccioli's first solo Haute Couture collection since Maria Grazia Chiuri moved to Dior. Creamy hues and romantic lines floated dreamily through the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild. Keeping the romance alive was Giambattista Valli. Familiar florals and ruffled necklines accompanied full tulle skirts and billowing high-low hems. Tulle also played a large part in John Galliano's Artisanal collection from veils to oversized portraiture. A simple color palette complimented the deconstruction we expect of Margiela and the bold embroidery.
Haute Couture week always provides a sensory overload in the best possible way. Below are some of the trends that we may see as we head into Oscar season.
