Click on the link above to see French Vogue’s journal de la fashion week – this time covering recent couture shows in the breathtaking snow-covered streets of Paris.
Here we have Day One which included the likes of Dior, Valli, and Iris Van Herpen – with a little Atélier Versace from the night before.
For Dior we see Janet Lee inspired hair from Guido Palau – also an ode to the iconic actresses of today, such as Anne Hathway. Make-up wise, Pat McGrath gives the Dior audience a modern take on flowers (as instructed by Raf Simons) with the big emphasis on bejewelled lips and shimmer on the eyes accompanied by little feathers on the lashes.
We then see incredible innovation at Iris Van Herpen, where a fabric so new that it is yet to be given an actual name was showcased for the very first time. A first experiment of different structures and aesthetics to create something truly eye-catching.
Giambattista Valli spoke about how he wanted to focus more and more around design in an almost industrial way (not that he has to prove anything to anyone, his shows keep getting better and better!)
This time he said it was about flora power and his love of silhouettes of big volumes, but balances with lightness and sheerness. Magical.
