The fall 2015 haute couture shows have begun!  As always, it is the details of a couture show that I covet.  The oversized earrings, embroidery, beautiful shoes, laser cut silhouettes, they all have me dreaming. Designer Raf Simons’ clothes “pulsed with peculiarity, from the very first look, with a tutu of tulle slung low on a crepe sheath over slim pants. The same slim pants reappeared with a mohawk of ostrich feathers, creating a novel silhouette. Volume—high, low, wide, narrow—where you least expected it appeared to be a feature of the collection, the way, for instance, pants in a silvery metallic raffia were paired with a big ball of ostrich feathers, or a cloud of organza exploded outward from a trim little body. But that is a signature of old-school alta moda, and it’s a reminder that alta moda is in Valli’s blood. Those inverted Capucci-style volumes aside, there were pieces here that evoked another time, another place, like the skirt sculpted over a lacquered macramé jumpsuit, or the slim-line embroidered tunic and pants.” Tim Blanks.
