Beside being the most foolproof way to get dressed, black is THE signature, if you wish to walk the New York city streets in style.
While Anna Wintour hates it, Joan Rivers did it, Mary Kate and Ashley still do it, Bob Marley sang for it…and YOU will be seeing a lot from it on this blog.
Therefore, I handpicked my favorite black looks from Couture fashion week in Paris for Spring Summer 2017.
Beside orange, tangerine, clementine, chinese lacquer, orange gold, orange sequin, orange… all the way, black definitely had its saved space on the Armani couture catwalks and it’s here to stay especially with its minimal yet timeless cuts and fabrics.
It was pretty obvious that Tisci’s attention was drawn by Native American women wearing Victorian dresses and this was the stimulus behind his whole collection especially with all those fringes and ruffles.
John Galliano’s designs hit the runways wildly as not seen from him since he last stepped the Maison Martin Margiela’s world. soft yet ripped off aggressive cuts to reveal the underworking just like a naked yet over dressed silhouette “to reduce it down to the memory of the emotion” as Galliano said.
Vauthier’s catwalk screams HOT! because couture can definitely go rock and roll with those deep V necks, one shoulder top-dress, and many more sequined garments.
Maria Grazia Chiuri chose to showcase her ‘fairies on a Midsummer Night’s dream’ in soft black tulle, organza and charmeuse de soie along other poetic dresses decorated with lavish floral motifs.
Donatella goes back to basics with her killer cuts and perfect choice of fabrics. Donatella presented 17 looks on theatrically spotlighted mannequins like Gigi Hadid, Karen Elson, Natasha Poly and many more to hit the runway by storm.
