Spring 2015 RTW : Paris Fashion Week : Part Three

Spring 2015 RTW : Paris Fashion Week : Part Three

So this is the final post covering Spring 2015; it's part three (the finale) of Paris Fashion Week and this post is just filled with all the big name fashion houses. I suppose overall, the collections that really stuck with me were The Row, Luisa Beccaria, Etro, Naeem Khan and Erdem. Starting off with Chanel, if you haven't seen it in news already, it was a lovely feminist gesture. But with reference to the actual clothes, I liked that they were simpler silhouettes, relying on colours for the edge. The watercolour print is…Read more
Fall 2014 Couture Collections

Fall 2014 Couture Collections

Hey guys! I hope you might have noticed, Xuvious.com has a new layout! I got kind of bored with the old one and I really wanted to improve the navigation. So the menu is more streamlined and there are also more ways of browsing the site (as can be seen in the sidebar). I also made it responsive so it'll be better to view on a tablet or mobile. Let me know if you like the changes or if you find any bugs/broken links! That aside, here are the Fall 2014 Couture collections!…Read more
Spring 2014 Couture : Valentino, Viktor & Rolf and Zuhair Murad

Spring 2014 Couture : Valentino, Viktor & Rolf and Zuhair Murad

Spring 2014 Couture shows have their last stop here! Blown away by Zuhair Murad's collection. Viktor & Rolf had a ballet inspiration while Valentino was musical and operatic.   Valentino The inspiration is very loud and vivid with music and wildlife. I love the burgundy dress with the snake motif running across. The slate grey plane gown was also very elegant, as were the gowns with floral applique and lace.   Viktor & Rolf First off, not a fan of the hair, it definitely adds to the atmosphere and message but gives me…Read more

Spring 2014 RTW : Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino

Spring 2014 RTW at Paris Fashion Week : Chanel, Giambattista Valli and Valentino   Chanel I like seeing Chanel in pink. The sheer brightness of it was surprising but the less loud shades like purples and berry toned pinks looked really good. I love the pearl accessories in this collection. The array of colours really reminded me of the Alberta Ferretti collection but looked really vibrant. That swimsuit is killer.     Giambattista Valli Feminine clothing has always been his forte and this time round there was symmetric draping, volume and the lightness…Read more

Fall 2013 Couture : Zuhair Murad, Elie Saab, Chanel, Valentino

I know it's not really on schedule but I couldn't do without posting the Fall 2013 Couture Week. I won't be doing them individually in super detail like I used to. I had  a lot of free time back then to think about what I wanted to write and really, to just look at the collections and reflect on them. Unfortunately, time to reflect is a luxury that I can't afford anymore. Today, I'll be sharing collections by Zuhair Murad, Elie Saab, Chanel and Valentino! Enjoy the unattainables!   Zuhair Murad Stciking to…Read more

Resort 2013 : Valentino

Valentino's resort collection feels like you've just stepped into a big garden. All the dresses have floral appliques which look absolutely gorgeous. I can't go into very detail here because there are so many that I adore. But some of the pieces that do stand out are the magenta leopard print dress, the white lace jumpsuit, the powder blue floral dress, the lace green trousers and the pastel floral coat.                                              …Read more
