The Armani Privé Couture collection was a very sugary sweet one, which used a dreamy sunset-worthy colour palette comprised of purples, blues and lots of sparkle to boot.
Predictably, wide-legged trousers were in abundance, as was headgear in the form of beaded veils and black hats courtesy of Philip Treacy. Our highlights were the stunning dresses during the finale which were in a world of their own, but the loose, draped silhouettes that were presented throughout the show went down just as well.
Despite being called “new vintage”, Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel collection had a somewhat 1940s vibe to it thanks to the wide shouldered, tailored pieces that came in mostly grey, silver, black and various shades of dusty and pastel pink.
As we all know, Chanel invites are few and far between at the best of times, but Karl Lagerfeld really does only select the most exclusive of guests to attend the Haute Couture shows. However, Diane Kruger was naturally sitting pretty on the front row, and we can’t help but imagine her in 3/4 of the new pieces that came out. No doubt she will have first dibs on whatever outfit she wants, and we can totally see her rocking the check coat modelled by Anja Rubik on a frosty night out in the winter, can’t you?
