Choosing a Fur Coat - Couture Creations
Fur wraps ascend to an even higher level when designers found it better, for example, to favour faux than real fox hair and one of the reasons is to avoid public outrage. Looking like a czarina in furry stoles is absolutely grand. Winter, as usual, carry them back into the runways each season with all the extravagance, elegance, and glamour which we’re used to lay our eyes on.
Three seasons in and Nicolas Ghesquiere is undoubtedly feeling more confident in his Louis Vuitton artistic director role – this a collection that continued to combine that clever blend of savvy, rock ‘n’ roll and retro that so belongs to his girl and bring with it a real sense of him, what he did back in his smash-hit Balenciaga days.
If it ain't broke don't fix it. That was surely the thinking from Saint Laurent front man Hedi Slimane this season, now in his third year at the helm of the house. With this collection, which proceeded to be another dollop of everything that we have come to expect from his hand, the designer continued in his pursuit of outfitting rock chicks the world over (world domination is no exaggeration).
Donatella Versace considers such things, and her customer adores her for it.
JOSEPH ALTUZARRA has been taking to the New York Fashion Week schedule for five seasons now with investment from Kering behind him. And it’s serving him well – each season his aesthetic moving on and stepping up into something more refined and more luxe. Today was an absolute case in point: flamboyant, sinuous and sexy, this was an incredibly seductive collection that aptly on Valentine’s Day.
