Paris Couture Spring 2012 Round Up: Day Two

Chanel, Giorgio Armani Prive, Stephane Rolland, Givenchy, Alexandre Vauthier… have I got you floating on cloud nine yet? Well let me just fluff up that cloud pillow of yours with a round up of the best Paris Couture had to offer on day two.

Chanel

Guests boarded ‘Chanel Air’ for some rather glamorous in-flight entertainment taking place inside a manufactured aircraft. We took to the skies with all shades of bleu on show. In typical Chanel fashion, a lot of texture was integrated into each piece with pockets and boat necks seeming to be a favourite. Models’ graced the catwalk with beaded, feathered and sequinned hair pieces adorning teased mohawks and elegant quiffs. I actually can’t resist saying that the gravity defying hair was taken to new heights. Oh dear!

Givenchy

I love a bit of dark romance and the house of Givenchy know how to do it well. Monochrome pieces were accented with tribal-like jewels. Bull rings hung from noses and large crystal earrings were attached to collars, giving each dress an exquisite gothic effect. Ten couture dresses were created by Riccardo Tisci who embraced loose lines and bias cuts, inspired by Fritz Lang’s 1927 ‘Metropolis’ among other passions of his.

Stephane Rolland

Yasmin Le Bon stole the show at Stephane Rolland when she labored down the catwalk in a scarlett red jersey wedding gown, which was so heavy that she had to have two assistants help with the train. The models, on the other hand, strutted their stuff in ivory, scarlett, black and acid green column dresses, some sharpened with the use of structured pleats while others were softened with chiffon. A hard edge was accessorized with chunky gold jewellery, waist belts and thumb-less gloves.

Alexandre Vauthier

Sleek kimono inspired tailoring teamed with disco-worthy gold dresses and wet-look skinny pants was all the rage at Alexandre Vauthier. Towards the end of the show we headed into divalicious territory with sheer dresses dropped to the naval and split to the thigh, offset with fur shoulders and gold chokers.
