Finality is a terrible thing. Especially when it means the end of a week of dazzling creations and moving art. Today sees the final installment of my Couture Week series (see the previous posts here and here).
This post focuses on three collections: Versace, Valentino and Dolce & Gabbana who actually showed in Rome at Alta Moda. Valentino and D&G were beautifulllllllll and filled with a sense of royal etherealism (that’s not a word but I’m making it one, so deal) and Versace was its usual sexualized self.
It’s Thursday but it feels like Friday so relax, kick your feet up and have one last delve into the depth of desire.
VERSACE (VERSACE VERSACE VERSACE)
Sticking to a palette of four colours -black, white, red and blue – Versace did what they do best: SEX.
This was a dream. Maria Grazia Chiura and Pierpaulo Piccioli (Valentino’s Creative Directors) were inspired by ‘love in its purest form’ and that ideology was perfectly executed in this collection.
DOLCE & GABBANA (ALTA MODA)
D&G also showed a Haute Couture Mens collection – Alta Sartoria – because one is simply not enough. Below you can get a glimpse of how utterly extravagant the collection was (courtesy of Vogue’s incomparable Suzy Menkes)…
Couture Week may be over but Fashion Month is coming our way so don’t forget to watch this space and hit the follow button for up-to-the-minute coverage, catchups and criticisms.
PS I’ll be off the grid until next week because my family is all down for the weekend and that means eating out every meal, jolling and living our best lives.
Until next time xxx
