The torrents of Spring/Summer

Oooh, it’s been a while.

But with summer nearly here, I thought some couture inspiration from the shows back in October last year to be essential viewing…

First, of course, is still-head-designer-less-but-rumour-heavy Christian Dior, for the headwear in the collection is nothing short of magnificent. We are particular fans of the following:

Nobody does etherial elegance like Dior. Some examples are these elegant but fierce headpieces, using silk and feathers.

The Chanel show was stunning, despite the sad lack of headwear.

But Givenchy and Jean Paul Gautier more than made up for it, with these beauties – note the nod towards ‘hair-as-hats’ or hair art going on in JPG. Fabulous.
