Haute Couture Spring 2012 Fashion Shows

Giambattista Valli Haute Couture

Haute Couture is never predictable yet awe-inspiring and delightful. In this case, Spring 2012 shows were either girly: adorned with lace and floral detailing (Christian Dior, Elie Saab, ), or edgy: featuring bright neon colours and extravagant silhouettes (, ). Let’s see what designers suggest just in time for the award season.

Lebanese couturier known for his luxurious designs is one of Hollywood’s favourites. Described as “shiny, uncomplicated, and easy to digest” Elie Saab’s range of exquisite ball gowns abounded with ladylike soft pastels and sheer materials. There have been some V-necklines, lots of lace, floral detailing, ruffles and sequins.

Giambattista Valli’s second haute couture collection did not disappoint. During the intimate fashion show without standing space, fashionable guests admired amazing ball gowns and cocktail dresses that were sent down the cream coloured runway. Covered with crystals and clusters of beaded flowers, the luxurious ensembles did not sin of unwearable exaggeration. There was a ladylike lace, a hint of sheer, sophisticated chiffon, and an innocent romantic breeze in the air.

The Spring 2012 couture collection of Atelier Versace was very special since the line was put on hiatus since 2004. Despite the fact that the last few weeks were quite busy for Donatella Versace (in case you didn’t know: she launched her collection for H&M), she put on display 15 unique ensembles. The most remarkable were neon sculptural dresses made with a view to the red carpet’s “warrior women” like , for instance.

’s successor and assistant, designed a collection that brings to mind Dior’s glory days. The ultra-feminine pieces of evening wear were politically fashionably correct but they were missing the good old vibe. Adorned with sheer, black lace and just the right amount of intricate encrustation, cocktail dresses and gowns noded to the ladylike 50s and so was the show’s musical accompaniment. Lana Del Rey, the most retro artist of today.

Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture

Jean Paul paid the ultimate tribute to the self-destructive of British singer Amy Winehouse. Six months after the tragic death French designer showcased a collection clearly nodding to Winehouse’s personal style. Signature beehive, winged eyeliner, the beauty spot, and clothes reminiscent of retro 50s were sent down the runway on Karlie Kloss, Frida Gustavsson and the hottest androgynous model Andrej Pejic. Torpedo bras and Fred Perry collars, anyone?
