So the couture weeks happened two weeks ago and I feel like we have more things to discuss on the subject. I did a review on Dior Couture Spring 2018 collection last week (catch it here), but thought I’d highlight three looks today. If I’m to be honest, it feels like the couture spring 2018 collections this year was a bit…meh? But anyways, I’ve found three gems!
Couture Spring 2018 Collections
This dress might look a bit like an old curtain that’s quickly been turned into an evening gown, like a true Cinderella-moment. If that’s how you feel about the dress I can totally relate because I do think it looks like a curtain and I do think it looks a bit rushed through. But isn’t it divine on the other hand? The dusty blush is a color that embodies luxury and vintage without compromising whilst the massive sleeves and the dramatic neckline adds both authority and edge. I think the heavy style and look of the fabric is handled well with the off shoulder style and neat bow, which makes the dress look more refined. Now, it doesn’t look that comfortable and it’s terribly impractical, but it’s unarguably the melody of couture. So in its glory, it does look like a curtain but a very stylish one. Look and collection can be found here!

If you’d like an example of how the 80s can be done in an upbeat and contemporary style, this JPG look is at your service. It’s bold but approachable, yellow but wearable! What I like in specific with this look. except the monochromatic look which always has my heart, is the structured look of the silhouette. The defined pants that goes for a classy style, paired with a blazer that’s in its place thanks to the oversized belt. I perhaps would’ve skipped the necklace and the earrings if I were to work the look, but I do think they add an artsy touch, especially with the wig! The 80s presence in the shoulders is well balanced with the rest of the silhouette which makes it a nice dose of inspiration if you want to incorporate more of the 80s in your own style!

And lastly, could a couture season happen without me mentioning at least something from Giambattista Valli? Think not! This creation is typical of Valli with the deconstructed hemline, the use of tulle and the embellishment of the 3D flowers. It’s nevertheless quite the summer dream with the bright and creamy white, the layering of lace and the off shoulder look. There’s a lot going on in one outfit, I know, but as all the elements used are kind of the same style (that sweet, feminine one), they work together. Kind of going monochromatic by style rather than by color if that makes sense? I wouldn’t mind working this look for a more fancy cocktail event and feel like Carrie Bradshaw for one evening.

Folks! Which one of these looks from the couture spring 2018 collections do you like the most? Or do you have another favorite? Let me know in the comments! Xx
