Haute-Couture Spring/Summer 2005

Paris, 24 January - Lucky invites were able to see the opening of Giorgio Armani, Stephane Saunier, Christian Dior, Maurizio Galante, Adeline Andre and Valentino’s Haute Couture womens spring colletion 2005. The 70 year old Armani took on the challenge with a collection of 31 evening oufits. From what we saw, there was just one un-wearable dress after another. But all will be shipped to Hollywood. Undoubtedly to celebrities with pre-bookings.
John Galliano for Christian Dior opened up the Dior show in a refreshingly alternative way. Gone was the run way and the spotlights... Instead of the runway, there was a set recalling Andy Warhol's Factory with a stack of TV monitors, a live band channeling the Velvet Underground and Marianne Faithfull. Valentino’s theme was “around the world in 37 days. He pictured this as a travelogue slide show, complete with sound effects - a bullring, a desert, the Parthenon and Kew Gardens. The designer's point, was that haute couture now is an entirely global affair". (editor’s note: is this a new thing...??)

All throughout today's busy agenda in Paris, the turn has been Chanel’s, Marc Le Bihan’s, Christian Lacroix’s and Laurent Merciel’s go to show off their latest design. We’re dying to read the reports on Chanel's show tomorrow!

Tomorrow’s schedule starting at 11.00am at Le Lido, Champs-Elysées. Franck Sorbier opens up followed by Jean Paul Gaultier, Dominique Sirop, Jean-Louis Scherrer, On Aura Tout Vu, and Elie Saab. What are the odds of seeing white/navy stripes from Jean Paul, do we think?

Unwearable for the female population (minus the 3000 who can actually afford them), but very gorgeous works of art indeed. Can't wait to see the other shows!

Själv tror jag ju då på LV den här säsongen. Sedan såg jag en fantastisk kappa från Balenciaga, om jag inte helt är ute o cyklar. En gul/vit med stora blommönster i 50-talsmodell.
