The 4th of July this yr coincides with Haute Couture Style Week in Paris, and albeit, we’re tremendous thankful for that. It’s an ideal excuse to distract ourselves from what’s been going down on this gun-saturated nation for like quarter-hour and stare, as an alternative, at stunning (or no less than attention-grabbing?), meticulously crafted garments lets completely by no means put on or come up with the money for.
The standard suspects are dolling up the runway this yr, together with Dior, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Iris Van Herpen, Azzedine Alaia and extra. Some designers and celebrities in reality introduced it; others puzzled us however no less than attempted exhausting; and a few of these seems to be, frankly, are simply private damage proceedings ready to occur.
Whilst staring at those eye-popping, avant-garde confections, we love to consider how they may translate to common retailer cabinets or mainstream tendencies—as a result of one without a doubt can’t input a birthday party in a five-foot huge thorny headdress with out placing any individual’s eye out.
With out additional ado, take a look at the newest dispatch from Paris. (We’ll be including photographs all the way through the week because the displays pass on.) Bon Visionnage!
