The Paris Haute Couture Week brought about all the big hitters from the fashion world onto the runways in Paris. World-renowned fashion houses like Schiaparelli, Dior, Chanel, and Balenciaga had their collection showcased during the Paris Haute Couture fashion week.
Here are the highlights from some of our favorite labels and designers.
Schiaparelli: Schiaparelli’s autumn/winter 2022 collection is named ‘Born Again – The New Couture’. Schiaparelli is known for their surrealistic fashion, and the show did not disappoint. Daniel Roseberry’s collection was a nod to creative innocence. The show had all of the classic Schiaparelli silhouettes like Corsetry, silks, feathers, heavy gold and silver ornamental design elements, intricate design embellishments, hand-crafted 3D flowers, and deconstructed ruffles that made the show a stand-out from among their contemporaries.
Armani Privé: Armani Privé couture autumn/winter 2022 ‘Pétillant’ was inspired by a Polish female painting from the early 19th century. The structuring of the silhouettes gave a very whimsical look to the show. The elegant collection looked ravishing on the dimly lit black runway with the dresses having a moonlit glistening effect on the models. The models wearing the new collection sure did look like they walked straight out of an artistic portrait.
Iris Van Herpen
Iris Van Herpen: The collection name ‘Meta Morphism’ is the 15th anniversary of the label known for exploring and designing with 3-D printed fibers made from cocoa beans. The designer and her namesake label have been pioneering tech-infused fashion from the beginning and her unique aesthetic has been a standout among many celebrities and avid fashion lovers equally.
Dior: Dior’s AW22 couture collection is called ‘The Tree of Life’.
Chiuri’s described the collection as “the symbol of the connection between cultures, mythologies and all forms of creation”. The fashion house collaborated with Ukrainian artist Olesia Trofymenko, who created the set design based on the concept of The Tree of Life. This collaboration brought about an enchantingly beautiful collection.
Chanel: The creative director of Chanel Virginie Viard stated that she wanted the new collection to showcase the long dresses and suits like Mademoiselle Chanel imagined them in the 1930s. The palette consists of lots of black, white, silver, khaki, and beige colors. The collection had all the classic silhouettes that Chanel is famous for like the pleated dresses, lace work, etc. with a modern twist.
Rahul Mishra: The designer took inspiration from nature and his childhood summers spent in a small Indian village. His combination of nature and nostalgia brought about a beautiful collection with botanical elements inculcated into his designs. The intricate design of the foliage and the use of the color gold to bring these elements out resulted in a very interesting collection for all lovers of fashion.
