Couture is the equivalent of fine dining in the world of fashion. Twice a year fashion enthusiast all over the world look at the runway with bated breath and wonder as luxe, hand-made, pieces-of-art walk down the runway. This year is no different; let’s turn to the capitale a la mode, and see what the haute couture week 2019-2020 has to offer!
Drama is all this season is about. Sleeves are making a statement and how! From Viktor & Rolf’s punk fantasy outtake to Schiaparelli’s magnificent draping – we love them all!

FREE THE NIPPLE
Almost as to echo the social movement – #freethenipple, the runway showed a lot of peek-a-book pieces. Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to bare it all!
Armani Prive, Schiaparelli, Maison Margiela
Headgear seems to be the accessory of the season! The models sashaying down the runway sported crystals veils, flopped bucket hats, marine caps, outlandish mad caps, all, with their head held high!
Schiaparelli, Valentino and Maison Margiela
FRINGES & FEATHERS
Is it even couture without some fringe and feather magic? It lightens the outfit almost instantly and gives it a dreamy air, and in the case of Christian Dior, a dark aura.

The candy swirl effect of one colour mashing into the other seems to be a major trend this season. The rule to follow? More the merrier!

STOCKINGS AND GARTERS
Seen on both men and women; these fashion accessories are having a major moment in the spotlight!
Christian Dior, Maison Margiela and Dundas
It’s all about the shoulder game, the bolder, the better!

BLAZER WITH WIDE PANTS
We are loving all the extra room. Couture and comfort! Doesn’t get better than that.
