I can’t get enough – admittedly, maybe I’m just already in the spirit of spring and in the mood for lighter colors, fabrics and flowy silhouettes. In other words, get out canadian winter. You make my hair, otherwise fine looking, a mess that is both dry and flat at the same time and give my hands the texture of reptiles. Back to the collections. Elie Saab makes me die inside a little bit as usual and as I write this, I realize that I forgot to include Atelier Versace and Zuhair Murad in my favourites (sad panda). After some thought, I dig the lighter, less haute couture feel that a few designers’s shows exuded or at least, what media defines as haute couture since the term actually stands for a fashion house that follows a few rules such as having an atelier in Paris with 15 employees. Whether it’s to be more consumer friendly or not, it doesn’t concern me; who am I to care for a 5000$ price range when I cringe at a 50$ top when shopping. Nevertheless, I never thought a slight change in the sumptuousness of clothing would bring sneakers to the runway but hey, I guess you can choose confort in the feet when you’re wearing heavy beading and feathers right? Yeah, I don’t know if I believe that myself either.
What did you think of the spring 2014 haute couture shows?
