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! Catch the look here.
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. See more of the look and the collection here.
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

I’m loving seeing that yellow is a continuing trend into the next season! Obsessed with all citrus colours at the moment, particularly yellows!

I know, yellow is such a nice color with the citrus look! Xx
Such great picks Mia!
Especially Valentino is always a favorite of mine, loving the feminine details so much. 🙂
Have a great Thursday ♥
I know! Valentino always delivers! Xx
All of these couture looks are amazing, but I think my favorite is the last one! Maybe it’s because I’m wedding planning so I’m just attracted to anything with tulle! The floral embroidery is also incredible!!
Haha that’s lovely though! Xx
Love the pops of colour in the show. Such a beautiful collection and honestly, the best time of year even over MFW to be honest. I love seeing the glamour side of fashion. 🙂 http://www.bauchlefashion.com/2018/07/spotlight-on-coachs-new-look.html
Hahah true though! Love the dreamy life! Xx
You know, I’ve never really thought of the fact that blush pink does indeed have a vintage vibe to it. You’re so right! I personally love the color. I think it’s my favorite pink shade, as it’s more wearable for the everyday and in nearly every situation. That said, aside from the color and satin material, I’m not a fan of the dress. It does look very rushed through and just doesn’t do it for me. The GV dress, on the other hand, wow! I absolutely love it! I love the lace details and the dark purple florals. The contrast with the white make it so different. I’m also loving that yellow suit by JPG. We both share a love for bold monochrome, so you already know. Thanks for sharing this recap, beauty, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

It’s a gem huh!! XX
Valentino, Valentino, Valentino. LOVE. I completely understand what you mean about the curtains vibe haha, and yet somehow the design is still incredibly luxurious and elegant. I swear, I’ve no idea how Valentino does it, but every single time they impress. Without fail. Such a gorgeous post, you’ve got me dreaming of fabulously flamboyant gowns now haha. Hope you’re having a wonderful week so far!
Haah I know! I’ve never seen a more elegant curtain ever!! Xx
Loving all of this! Great inspiration for the month’s to come.
xo, Whitney and Blaire

Glad you liked these looks! Xx
Can we talk about the color of the first gown?! That might be my favorite color of all time. Stunning. The bold 80s pantsuit is definitely intriguing to me and a giant WOW to the tulle on the last dress. Couldn’t you see that as a new age wedding gown or is it just me? 😉
Hahah I know!! It’s something else for sure! Xx
Oddly enough, I immediately loved the pink Valentino. I don’t know exactly WHY, but something about it immediately made me happy. Maybe because it feels a bit playful? Sort of like a little girl is playing dress up.
It’s playful indeed!! Xx
These collections were so killer!
Le Stylo Rouge
Loved them too! Xx
