The spring couture shows at Paris continued with exceptional collections from Giambattista Valli with his floral magnificence, Alexis Mabille with the artful elegance and Chanel with the icy and young collection.
They are stellar and very red carpet worthy!
It’s a collection that any girl would dream off but rather than going the pastel route, Valli used striking contrasts that made the collection bold. I love the draping in the bow shape, almost a peplum but not quite, it looked very elegant. The appliques are placed perfectly really make a statement. I loved the gown with blue applique and coral tulle. The shorter mint dress with leaves and a bejeweled collar is also very youthful and striking.
They all may be quite but not quite wedding. I did find the decorations a bit distracting though. All of them are so unique and very graceful and elegant. I love with the ones with the draping in particular. The gold pleated cover up is really something! The nude chantilly lace dress also really caught my eye, it’s very understated and beautiful.
I wasn’t very taken my this collection but it has it’s moments. The cropped jackets and skirts with the contrast midriff is great in concept but I feel didn’t look very flattering. The knee caps were too Barbie and I was really shocked to see that! I did however like the light dresses with iridescent embroidery and the ones with the feathers, very beautiful.
