With a summer mood in mind, Louis Vuitton introduced a laid back collection of comfortable summer wardrobe as well as accessorizes.
It is hardly the first time that I write about Haute Couture, the true art in fashion. Couture can bring dream designs to life, representing the divine art of creation in fashion, uniting feminine beauty with artisan skills of cutters, seamstresses and embroiderers. Haute Couture is a vanishing world, available only to few who are privileged enough to participate in this spectacle of beauty and able to pay vast sums of money for those one of a kind creations.
As close as I had ever been to Haute Couture was in Paris, when I had a chance to see an exhibition of some magnificent Couture gowns. The impression was unforgettable, worth the long wait in front of Hôtel de Ville. I still recall some details, fabrics and colors, simply wonderful. And unless my life shifts completely and showers me with an unimaginable wealth, this is as near as I will ever get. Does it mean I should stop dreaming my Couture dreams? I do not think so! Beauty can be admired from afar, like paintings or sculptures, influencing viewer by its charm.
I like to watch Haute Couture fashion shows and see newest designs presented by my favorite fashion houses, and up till now, this one is my very favorite one, Christian Dior Spring Couture 2012 designed by Bill Gaytten. Even though it was featured some months back, I would like to present it once more, for the beauty so close to the atmosphere of the original New Look designs.
Powder pink and ballerinas must have been an inspiration for this classic and simple collection presented by Ralph Lauren during Resort 2014 fashion shows. I like clean lines and feminine dresses. Bravo for the beret worn by the first model, this quite forgotten accessorize can be still very chic.
Is blue the new white? Looking at blue shirts from Valentino RTW spring 2014 fashion show, one may certainly think so. Personally I like blue shirts a lot and wear them on more informal occasions, when a classic white shirt could be just too official.
