Dark Arts by Dolce & Gabbana.

For many seasons Dolce & Gabbana do not fail to amaze and so was with a Spring Summer 2014 collection. Here multiple variations of a classic little black dress inspired by Italian tradition and Sicilian spirit.

Resort Fashion by Chanel.

Balance of power is definitely changing when high fashion migrates from its traditional capitals to East and Far East. Recent Chanel Resort collection was presented in Dubai and as well visible, the spirit of the collection is definitely close to Arab countries. No wonder, as United Arab Emirates or recently brought to prominence Qatar are markets that no fashion house can afford to neglect. I still haven’t formed my opinion, but for sure I will follow recent developments in the world of fashion, though my very own esthetics is still closer to Paris.

French Week. Mardi. Haute Couture.

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.

Refined Spring by Carolina Herrera.

The Spring Summer 2014 Ready to Wear collection oscillates around neat and simplistic esthetics so typical for Carolina Herrera. As usual, a perfect white shirt is presented in her new incarnations. There are dresses and skirts made from layers of transparent fabrics, delicate and flirty, perfect for garden parties and long summer nights. Herrera’s style is understated, feminine and very elegant, free of ostentation or excess. Same can be said about make up and hair styling, which in this show was simple and very refined, making models look beautiful with the natural glow.

Get the Look from Fashion Capitals.

Fashion shows are a thing of the moment and although only selected can participate in this celebration of world fashion, there is nothing to prevent one from following recommendations from Vogue and trying “The Look” from fashion capitals – London, Milan, Paris or New York.

Scheherazade Tales. Haute Couture by Armani Privé.

This season a number of designers looked towards orient in search of inspiration. So did Giorgio Armani presenting latest Haute Couture collection for Armani Privé, creating an alluring and feminine collection that could easily illustrate the book of “One Thousand and One Nights”. There is a lot to be admired about it, colors and deliciously rich fabrics, that dress women like heroines from the pages of Arabian tales.

Hot Couture by Giambattista Valli.

To me, Haute Couture creations are associated with elaborate, ladylike and sophisticated designs, just like seen at Valentino or Elie Saab catwalks, but this season Giambattista Valli proved that Haute Couture can as well be a Hot Couture. Dresses presented for Spring season are alluring, sexy and very… short. I loved the first one in shocking pink and with floral motives. If not for the price, that would be my very first choice!

Like a Roman Goddess.

Dolce & Gabbana still use Italian tradition as an inspiration for their collection and they do it with a success.
