Paris Haute Couture: Valentino, Maison Margiela
The Italian brand Valentino presented a couture collection of the autumn-winter 2017-18 season as part of Paris Haute Couture. This time, the creative director of the brand decided to work with silhouettes, focused on different epochs and chose a bright color solution.
At the first glance, the collection is rather modest. Dresses of nuns resembled a medieval image of a chaste and inconspicuous girl. But the bright colors of these dresses in the floor added to the collection of the holiday. Also in the collection were dresses – combings, caps, translucent knee-highs, dresses with ruffles and embroidery.
When we hear that John Galliano has released a new collection, the question immediately arises, what this time? How did the designer stand out and surprise the fashionable audience? You do not believe it. At Paris Haute Couture models at Maison Margiela fashion show appeared with wet hair in the foam. But that’s not all.
“The designer once again appeals to the exaggeration of volumes and is significantly different from the predecessors who presented the collection of couture in this season,” – critics note.
In the new collection, the designer combines sequins, wool, vinyl and organza, adds masculinity to the images of the models. John Galliano layers several fabrics and creates three-dimensional silhouettes.
“At the same time, Galiano does not violate the laws of couture collections. In the autumn-winter line there is a trim of feathers on the skirts of the skirts, expensive fabrics and embroidery. In spite of the abundance of various models, special attention is nevertheless attracted to coats and trench coats of architectural cuts. Many things are presented without integral sleeves. Their designer changes, enlarges and bandages. “
