So happy to have completed my third round of Paris Couture Week. When I’m asked, “would you want to launch your own line”? I reply, yes but “it has to be couture”. Why? Well, I grew up surrounded by a mother that taught me the importance of details, the love of embroideries and all types of beadings but also the appreciation of beautiful fabrics. The most beautiful thing about couture is that it makes us travel through time, whether we’re talking about a classic fairytale approach to couture or the new contemporary couture. We travel between past and future and I love how nowadays most designers are finding the right changes to modernize the most classical cuts/pieces.
This couture week was very different as the main fashion houses had very different conceptions to present. I can say that we had most of them trying to set new couture rules, taking us closer to the practicality of ready-to-wear while others went back to the past to explore new ways of decorating the most classical cuts. I know this might sound confusing but it’s a little round-up of what’s coming up on the blog. Stay tuned for all my couture reviews coming up on the blog starting monday along with details of the looks I wore for the shows.
To kick it off, I wore to Georges Hobeika a simple and structured black jumpsuit from his ready-to-wear collection. I love wearing jumpsuits with my body shape because it elongates my legs even more (remind me to write more about body shapes!!). I fell in love with Dior’s latest bag, (the “diorever”) simply because it translates everything about my daily needs. It’s a structured purse that can also be worn with a strap and it has enough space for a wallet, a notebook, my little snacks, my makeup pouch. Genuinely in love with it. On my wishlist for this summer!
And because I always accuse myself of not trying out new little additions to my wardrobe, I went for a beaded turban. I was always convinced that turbans don’t suit me (I don’t know why honestly, haha!) so I thought it was time to change my perception. I spent about twenty minutes figuring out how to wear it properly; I have to make you laugh and admit that I’ve sent my sister about six selfies until I found out the right way to wear it. I was so hesitant but I fell in love with the style.
Definitely looking out for more turbans, comment on this post with suggestions of brands if you have any favorites!!!
