The Couture Buzz

Do you think there is such a thing as a “perfect couture collection”?

When I first started this post I thought I’d pick a few of my favorite looks from each collection, but that turned out to be impossible.  This is actually a very edited down highlight of what I originally wanted to show you.  Each collection was so beautiful and ethereal that I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.  Trends among this Spring 2016 Couture seem to be in the use of lace (two of my faves by Givenchy and Alberta Ferretti), off-the-shoulder dresses, accentuated waists, yet still a lot of play with volume, a few sportswear references such as Chanel’s white bomber jackets and Versace’s sporty vest, strong shoulders, ruffles, double breasted trench coats and suiting from Dior and Dice Kayek, and of course tons and tons of impeccable beading and embroidery.

Do you think there is such a thing as a “perfect couture collection”?  Because if there is, I think Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2016 Couture takes the title.  I’m singling him out specifically because every look was literal perfection.  However, in the midst of viewing I had to remind myself that I wasn’t looking at Dior Couture.  Is someone gunning for the Creative Director spot?
