Okey, it’s time to wrap up this series of highlights from the fall 2019 couture collections. You can find part 1 and part 2 here. Seeing and chatting a bit about some dreamy couture collections is, if you ask me, such a great way to start the weekend. Who doesn’t want some fashion glam to get in the right mood? Not because it’s realistic to wear any of these creations, but a major dose of inspiration and a good ol’ reminder that we do need more fashion magic in our lives!
I’ve always had a crush on evening gowns that are off shoulder and have voluminous sleeves. It’s something so delicate with the bare skin meeting an explosion of fabric. I love that the sleeves are partly done in a semi-transparent fabric. It gives the puffy sleeves are more light look, which doesn’t make them too overwhelming. The defined waist also helps to balance the black fabric. Love the A-line silhouette of the dress though, it underlines the triangle shape of the sleeves. The idea of doing the dress in polka dots, makes it more interesting and unusual compared to a classic black. I think the polka dot pattern also adds some 80s vibe, but still with a contemporary vibe. This dress with a pair of red lips and I’m home!
From one 80s look to another, how about this leopard dress from Valentino? I know a metallic leopard dress might not be the typical couture look, but oh my how fun this is. The sleeves are framing the core of the dress so so perfectly, would love to see this style in more clothes. Animal prints are seldom done formally, which is why the maxi length adds a fun twist to it. The choice of doing the leopard pattern more metallic and golden adds a certain glam, but still with some attitude. Perhaps the dress looks a bit heavy and bulky, but I think that’s well handled with no visible accessories.
This creation from Givenchy is such a good reflection of how couture and daily fashion can be infused. The skirt is a statement with its volume and maxi length. The draping is wonderfully done and is what adds character to the outfit. You could normally expect the top to match the skirt in style or at least be something glam, but nope, it’s a “simple” knitted pink turtleneck. Its minimalistic style and pink color is a dramatic contrast to the skirt, but also the fashion magic in the outfit. I love how the skirt is made wearable through the top and vice versa. This can definitely be done at home too, with a glam piece and a basic one! Just take that sequin skirt with a simple sweater or the lace top with something denim. It’s. all. about. the. balance!
