Woylaa.com – We all know that couture fashion is mostly creative exploration, since apparently almost no one except celebrities in high end parties wears couture. However, the latest fashion news from couture runway shows great upcoming trend for the new 2015 couture fashion. This July, Danielle Prescod from Elle shares her thoughts of Fall 2015 Couture Runways that happen at the beginning of fashion week: dramatic outlines and silhouettes combined with unique fabrications to match.
Fantasy Element Popularity in Latest Fashion News
This time, apparently fantasy element plays a lot in couture fashion, thanks to the popularity of high fantasy brought by the works such as The Hobbit and Game of Thrones. The inspiration is very proper, since couture itself is more like a media for designers to explore and imagine, unrestricted with responsibilities to make wearable styles. For example, check out this definitely regal dress by Chanel, with embroidered cape, gilded ornaments in front including giant brooch and buttons, and dramatic fabric line. The dress reminds us of something Cersei Lannister will wear in Game of Thrones.
Chanel apparently loves playing with big ornament that becomes the center of the ensemble. In this dramatic dress with red and black fur accents, there is a silver ornament in front of her dress, which gives contrast as well as center of view of the whole getup. The fur accent on the arms and the fiery looking combo of red and black give slight reminiscent of the fiery black dress with bird wings Jennifer Lawrence wears in Catching Fire, but the strapped sandals give more casual look. Plus, the silvery sling bag, although contrasting the dress, make a perfect connection with the silvery ornament.
Designers up for Pattern and Silhouette Plays
According to latest fashion news, dramatic silhouette combined with patterns is something that many designers are also up to for 2014-2015 couture fashion. Jayson Brundsod, for example, created this sexy yet elegant patterned two piece dress with slit accent on the torso. Although the dominating colors are grey and white, he played with patterns so the dress will still look rich and couture like.
Meanwhile, Zuhair Murad created this beautiful elemental looking dress with sheer golden fabric, which looks as if it blended with the model’s skin at the hemline. Golden leaves accent act as a belt and leaves her with shining goddess lookalike. He probably took his cue from the elegant golden crystal dress Cate Blanchett wore at the Academy Award, but with more elemental, couture touch.
Finally, what couture fashion runway completes without Versace? From the latest fashion news at Paris Fashion Week, Versace showed this dramatic purple dress with asymmetrical lines, high slit and futuristic touch with its black accents, accentuate with the model’s dramatic makeup and definitely makes her a queenly character that will interact with any Star Trek characters from another planet.
Fantasy element is always a big play in couture fashion, especially since couture is more like an experimental and exploration aspect of designer works. The latest fashion news always brings something fresh and new, but couture fashion news will always bring something unimaginable and even surprising, and sometimes taken right from our favorite fantasy works.
