Elie Saab couture SS20 was magical. It was far from minimal and celebrated the female form in every way. The collection was everything grand, luxurious and meticulous.
This collection was royal. Each piece was painted with greatness and nobility. Elie Saab is known to be the sculpturer of feminism. His collection for Spring and Summer 2020 was inspired by the Mexican culture that was visible through the motive and embroidery on each dress.
The Haute Couture Spring Summer 2020 collection is a mix of both Europe & Mexico with a modern twist. The dresses looked monumental with embroideries and layers of florals and pearls, featured shades of white, cream and blush, with gold detailing, with structured shoulders that added strength to the romantic gowns.
Monochromatic looks in matte fabrics and sensual silhouette added boldness and elegance to the collection in the form of one-color gowns. Maximalism was extended to the accessories with gold and oversized earings and sunglasses decorated with crystals.
This season Giambattista Valli presented his collection in an exhibition open to the public instead of an exclusive fashion show. “Sometimes the fashion world is too exclusive and sometimes it’s nice to be inclusive,” the designer said
In a 20-minute fashion show audience cannot really enjoy the collection and the hard work behind it. When it’s haute couture on the level of Valli’s, the ability to walk around and appreciate the details, skills, colors and volumes of each dress, makes the whole thing more amazing.
His influences were straight from his heart, the epic beauty of the gardens and houses of the Amalfi coast; photographs and memories of Marella Agnelli, Lee Radziwill, and Jackie Onassis give a flavor of how Valli has extracted the essence of that old and classic lifestyle with a modern and extravaganza twist with feathered masks, extravagant fuchsia frills, colored capes and drapes, yards of tulle trains, balloons and juicy bows.
“Lightness, easiness, freedom. Those are the ideas I was thinking of for this collection. It’s about dynamic women today, women in motion. We looked at a melting pot of references and inspiration from past decades, then looked to our brand DNA and put everything together into a blender, to make a new, modern mix”, Victoria Beckham
It’s no secret that the Victoria Beckham brand has found itself in financial problems over the past few years. In 2017, losses rose from £8.5m to £10.3m, In this collection, Victoria Beckham changed directions a bit, she presented deep V-neck dresses, comfortable to wear, romantic and sensual, high waited trousers, long coats and a sea of camel, ivory and creams were interrupted with jarring color combinations of brown with purple and green.
This collection is one of the best ever presented, it caters for all taste, fun, flirty and classy.
I couldn’t pick my favorite looks because all pieces are to my taste. So enjoy the Full Beckham collection SS20
Stéphane Rolland’s haute couture collection for Fall/Winter 19/20 is a fine and perfect blend of Western and Chinese influences.
This collection was born during his visit to the Forbidden City in China. The concept of this haute couture collection was a combination of ‘the forbidden’ along with the richness of the history of the Chinese empire.
Precious satins, large volumes and Kimono style dresses, the collection was Magical. Deep red dresses, symbolizing vitality in Chinese culture, these pieces gave energy to the collection. Stephane also included his signature geometric models, with clean cuts and architectural volumes. We notice the meticulous embroidery mostly with pearls in addition to giant brooches, placed on a shoulder or worn as a bracelet or ring embellished with crystal or jade stone.
