Paris and Haute Couture.

by Cashmere Wrap & Macadamia Nuts

Haute Couture is the highest form of fashion – exclusive, elite, hermetic and mesmerizing. It is not something that is available for everyone (nor should it ever be), but it doesn’t mean that those who are not so fortunate to be in the Couture circle can’t covet it from afar and admire its beauty by following fashion editorials or selected exhibitions dedicated to Haute Couture. 

To mark the latest Paris Couture fashion shows, some looks from my favorite collections. With some resentment I have to observe that Couture seems to be moving from elaborated gowns towards über luxurious, yet modest to the point of being austere designs, like those seen at Valentino. Perhaps it is an influence of the wobbly economy that pushed the world of fashion towards more somber looks, although looking at stunning creations by Elie Saab there still is some hope that Couture glamour is not lost forever.
