Haute Couture shone once again in Paris through its couturiers and guest members. The creativity and ateliers were celebrated through flashes of genius. For a single purpose: to make the woman beautiful. So rightly so it was a question of shapes, the body and sensuality. At Versace we found the most beautiful girls, such as Lara Stone or Doutzen Kroes who came to play romantic hippies. At Yiqing Yin it was about wrapping the fabric around the body like a snake whilst Bouchra Jarrar gave us her definition of couture lingerie.
In addition to the woman in all her splendour, the couturiers drew their inspiration from art. From Dice Kayek and his clin d’oeil to Basquiat, to Raf Simons and his homage to Flemish painters at Dior. Without forgetting the portraits of women by Alexis Mabille in the Garnier Opera whilst Schiaparelli invited us to the Elsa Theatre, through the first collection designed by Bertrand Guyon. Finally, the dresses became true works of art thanks to the talent of the duo Viktor & Rolf. The exceptional gowns were highly acclaimed by the guests including several stars, who were delighted to take some time out for fashion week. Karl Lagerfeld went as far as including them in the Chanel show.
We saw the appearances of Vanessa Paradis and her daughter Lilly-Rose, Isabelle Huppert, Rita Ora, Kristen Stewart, and Julianne Moore…to name a few, who came to play at the Casino under the gazes of the astounded spectators. To the sets, where once again the Chanel house amazed us with its “circle”, a kind of private club worthy of a Scorcese film. And finally what about Jean-Paul Gaultier and his ode to Brittany, with galettes served to the guests and an orchestra appearing on the stage. The couturier took all the codes of this region, like the costumes, embroidery, and colours which he reworked with magic for 59 looks and proved once again that he excels with brilliance in the art of couture.
