Fall 2019 Couture

Couture Toujours

I’ve decided to format this post a bit differently.  While historically for the collections I’ve divided them more by trend to keep things more streamlined.

Moody Autumn

Moody couture gowns were seen among the collections Givenchy and Dior at fall 2019 couture.  There’s little to not love from this look from Givenchy.  Firstly, what is fall without black lace?  Lace meets tulle in the skirt which is a completely new take on the layered sheer skirt.  The tulle drapes over a modern cage skirt – almost lampshade-like in it’s execution.  Layered over fishnets and wet look leather boots.  Very chic, very edgy, very autumn, very Givenchy.

Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior Fall 2019 Couture show was very dead bride and I adored it all.  From the black veils, to the shimmering black gowns, plunging necklines and artistic fishnets.  Even the runway had a Beetlejuice feel to it, with a grey marble look.

Anecdotally, I’ve determined my look for fall to by chic comme edgy.

Black & White Bows

Rather refined couture from Chanel, particularly in contrast to Karl Lagerfeld’s larger than life shows including rocket ships and indoor tides.

We all need a pair of sequined trousers from Alexandre Vauthier.

Pastels & Florals

Ethereal pastels and shapes from Giambattista Valli and Alexandre Vauthier‘s fall 2019 couture collections.  Billowing skirts, the use of ruffs contrasted against 1960’s smock shaped mini dresses and bows atop heads.

Aristocracy

These looks from Valentino & Armani Prive remind me of how I dressed my Barbie’s as a little girl (I’ll call to the floor a hot pink sequined gown from Valentino).  Very elegant and over the top.  How I imagine the aristocracy would have dressed in 2019.  One of my favourite couture collections is always Armani Prive.  This collection is very clean.  It has cohesiveness in the way I feel my Barbie doll’s outfits used to have – perhaps that’s where the comparison comes from.   Fur stoles, tiered ball gowns and silky, shiny skirts.
