The biannual haute couture fashion week has wrapped and left the world in awe. As they showcased their SS19 couture collections, designers delivered fashion statements of the highest form. Here are the most jaw-dropping looks of the past week.
Viktor & Rolf
Viktor & Rolf brought memes to the couture runway this week and it got brutal. Meme fashion and slogan gowns are having a moment right now, and it's not for the faint hearted. After all, honesty is the best policy.
The perfect recipe for a Valentino couture show? Feathered eyelashes, a surprise cameo from Naomi Campbell and the tears of Celine Dion.
Chaotic couture infiltrated Maison Margeila’s runway this week, leaving the door widely open for interpretation. Inspired by digital decadence, the collection was a reference to today’s excess culture.
Iris Van Herpen
No one does futuristic couture quite like Dutch designer, Iris Van Herpen. From glow in the dark heels to 3D printed face jewellery, Herpen’s latest collection was an innovative delight.
Olivier Rousteing did not hold back in his first Balmain couture show. The creative director brought maximalism and minimal vision to his #BalmainArmy this week.
Schiaparelli is no stranger to the avant-garde and their ‘Meteorid Swarm cape’ delivered just that. Crafted from ruby and amethyst coloured feathers, the ball shaped cape is one for the hall of fame.
