No More Couture

As the title suggests, Couture Week is dead. So unimpressed I wasn't there - don't tell Le Boif but I would have rather been there for Couture Week than Men's Week! But then again, will be moving to Paris so will have plenty of Couture Weeks to come - bliss.

So, round-up. Well, it's needless to say that Chanel was magnifique - stunning gowns sprinkled amongst cosey and season specific suits and coats and skirts and dresses and...
More than could be said for Alexis Mabille - no coats in site! Or dark colours ( a few black pieces don't count!) except the odd black strip of ribbon on a creamy chiffon dress. Still, beautiful pieces and still an avid fan of the bow detail.

Wasn't tooo keen on Elie Saab. I guess it's fun to have a theme but... ALL white? Wedding much? Does he want to make bridal gowns full time? He's already done gold before but white would not have been my choice for theme number two. Although it is quite epic to have a full collection of different ideas and cuts and styles all in white - the point is they're all still white...consistent but a tad boring?

And finally, yes, you probably know already but Givenchy has done it again. Just thought I would confirm that for everyone. And in case you didn't know..where the hell have you been???
Beautiful Morroccan and equestrian themes(?!) - who cares if that makes sense. Gothic undertones just bring that extra edge that Tisci absolutely nails. I would post all the pieces up can look at them yourself I'm sure. Instead, I will give you a taste of the best of the three themes: Morroccan, equestrian and as always, Gothic.

And oh, Tisci thought he'd also throw in some stunning nymph-like dresses.
