The couture fashion week is here which only means that we get the chance to indulge ourselves with some breath-taking looks. I’m kicking off a series of posts dedicated to these collections starting with yesterday’s Dior runway presentation.

I have to admit that Dior has stopped being one of my favorite couture brands a while ago, perhaps because of the unflattering designs that seem quite repetitive or the red-carpet looks provided for the likes of Marion Cotillard and Jennifer Lawrence that fail to excite me. But, of course, that doesn’t stop me from checking out every new collection.

This Fall 2014 collection is a melange of looks, from elegant gowns to fur coats, modern short dresses and minimalist suits. What I really liked were the minimalist chic coats sweeping to the ground, the vivid accents of colors such as bright red and navy blue that lit up the understated black elegance and the utter comfort that exuded from these looks. It’s like Raf Simons found the perfect combination of couture and modern functionality! (more…)

Currently Lovin’…Andrew Gn Resort 2013

I was mostly impressed by the gowns Andrew Gn created for the Resort 2013 collection. Extremely feminine, of delicate fabrics & refined patterns, the dresses are beautiful. The brocade and the embroidered neckline evoke the vintage style as a source of inspiration for the collection. I would really like to see them on the red carpet at important award ceremonies. The gold one is my favorite. (pictures via: fashionising.com)
