The house of Schiaparelli, founded by the late couturier and Coco Chanel contemporary Elsa Schiaparelli, opened the second day of Paris Haute Couture week with its latest Autumn/Winter collection.
Inspired from an early-twentieth-century photographs taken with Eastman Kodak’s non-substantive color reversal film Kodachrome, the entire line was based on a dominating palette of shocking pink, a colour favoured by the brand’s Italian founder.
Created by the Parisian label’s Milan-born design head Marco Zanini, the range included an unevenly draped evening gown, a pair of black crocodile gauntlet gloves, an embroidered purple jumpsuit and a broad shouldered suit jacket paired with wide leg pants.
After Schiaparelli’s colourful extravaganza, another French couture label Christian Dior grabbed the spotlight at the widely celebrated made-to-order fashion runway with its newest creations, designed by the brand’s creative director of Belgian descent Raf Simons.
A delightful blend of futuristic, red carpet and art-house like looks, the line showed a delicately embroidered ivory brocade full-skirted dress with panniers and a parachute silk made boiler suit with metallic thread embroidery worn with loose leather gloves.
The 60-piece collection also featured some confection hued crystal-studded Edwardian-style frock coats, full-length fur coats, chiffon slips, and long coats and wide-legged trouser combos.
The Italian-born French fashion designer Giambattista Valli took inspiration from a sunny beachside holiday for his latest haute couture presentation which featured a yellow and green coloured daisy-patterned lace crafted mermaid cut skirt, a ruffled chiffon ball skirt and some striped cotton shirts worn with relaxed rolled-up pyjamas in shades of off-white, citrus yellow, lime green, blush pink, magenta and powder-blue.
