Haute Couture FW06 I

It is finally the season of the beautiful, mega expensive Haute Coutures again!

Chanel
Karl never fails to amaze me with the many ways he reinterpret's Coco's original designs while still keeping it very much Chanel. This time around he went for being modern, by encompassing modern styles and techniques with Chanel's intricate classic designs.
He started off with these black and white, very straight and structured creations- very neat and cute.
I love the intricate details given to Haute Coutures. I esp adore the black dress on the right, with the gold leaf details. It makes it look so delicate.


I think these two tweeds looks may actually BE warm enough to actually be worn in Fall/Winter 06/07!! Its thick without looking bulky. And btw, the things that look like scrunched up tights on their legs (as I'd originally thought) are not tights, but very long boots in materials that look like stockings. Don't know what Karl was thinking there.Ah, the modern technique I was talking about that Coco didn't have back in her time. Love the grey dress, its looks so adorable! The red one is very dramatic and reminds me of John Galliano's last vampire/french revolution collection for Dior.
The evening gowns were of course absolutely beautiful. And while the white wedding dress is not something I would choose for myself, it IS very cute, modern and young.

Valentino

The other haute couture classic I look out for is Valentino. You can always trust them to produce the most elegant and gorgeous clothes.

Influenced by the Russians, this season Valentino started off with a richly embroidered black coat that screams Russian. Then there was this black and white dress- I love the sleeves.

The poofy sleeves were very common in this collection, having been encompassed into chic suits and set. I love the gold outfit, it reminds me of a more elegant and fitted version of recent Chloe creations.

Of course, the classic elegantly fitted looks were still there with gold trims and details added on to give it a more russian flare.

Sigh, I adore these slinky silver and gold dresses with leaf details. It so elegant and classy.

Naturally the evening dresses were stunning. Sigh . . . . I got to work harder!

I LOVE the third set of Valentino pictures... They are SO femme fatale, 1950's heroine chic, with a gorgeous Russian twist and attention to detail. LOVE this post!

the chanel line as shown is tasteless and odd--something one would never say about the founder's work!!! the valentino line is too fussy.

All gorgeous and artistic...Some a little much so. I really love them all, just wouldn't have a place to wear half of it.

I don't understand how those boots are made?
are they thigh high?
I know these boots are featured in, "The Devil wears Prada" but I can't figure them out...

thanks for the help!

I love that Chanel 3/4 length sleeve jacket! Please tell me there will be high street versions? And the silky Valentino silver dress and that grey Chanel dress...

When I first saw Chanel, I was a bit confused by the jeans. Couldn't figure out if they were boots or what. I've decided that I like the collection though. It's refreshing, yet Chanel- but I just wish Karl would actually opt for real pants or stockings?

But I still love it. The intricate details, STUNNING! My favourite thing of couture; details.

I thought the jeans looked weird in Chanel, but there were a few really cute dresses I liked, esp the white one Lily Donaldson wore (not shown here.) The models looked like little pixies in the Chanel show!

I absulutely LOVE the Chanel collection. Chanel hasn't grabbed me in a long time, but I loved almost everything in this collection - to a certain degree of course - instead of thigh-high denim "boot-stockings" I'll probably opt for skinny trousers or tights tucked into very slim, knee-high boots, or something with a similar effect. I am really into the denim-under-dress-or-coat look; very young way to wear luxury goods. Now if only I could afford those coats.....
