At Paris Haute Couture, French and Italian designers rushed to the runway to showcase their breathtaking designs. This year we've witnessed the veil prevail at many shows (special mention to Armani and Giambattista Valli for doing it particularly well).
Strong trends that will permeate from the runway to real life? Expect to see extra-full shirts, ruffles (Giambattista Valli and Christian Dior) and well-placed embellishment (Elie Saab and Armani) hit shelves in the coming months. Treat your eyes to sartorial decadence!
Maison Martin Margiela –Vintage transformed, this collection featured crystal doorknobs and reworked wind sails to make gloves and coats. The upper body was the focus of this collection with bottoms often draped in lace.
