The 4th of July this yr coincides with Haute Couture Style Week in Paris, and admittedly, we’re tremendous thankful for that. It’s a really perfect excuse to distract ourselves from what’s been going down on this gun-saturated nation for like quarter-hour and stare, as a substitute, at gorgeous (or a minimum of fascinating?), meticulously crafted garments lets completely by no means put on or manage to pay for.
The standard suspects are dolling up the runway this yr, together with Dior, Chanel, Schiaparelli, Iris Van Herpen, Azzedine Alaia and extra. Some designers and celebrities in point of fact introduced it; others puzzled us however a minimum of attempted onerous; and a few of these appears, frankly, are simply private harm complaints ready to occur.
Whilst staring at those eye-popping, avant-garde confections, we love to consider how they may translate to common retailer cabinets or mainstream tendencies—as a result of one indubitably can’t input a celebration in a five-foot huge thorny headdress with out striking any individual’s eye out.
With out additional ado, take a look at the most recent dispatch from Paris. (We’ll be including photographs during the week because the displays pass on.) Bon Visionnage!
