SHEER DE­LIGHT

Le­banese de­signer Elie Saab show­cased his Game Of Thrones-in­spired col­lec­tion on the run­way with capes, hoods and em­broi­dered gar­ments. Sheer em­broi­dery

RO­MAN­TIC RUF­FLES

The uber-fem­i­nine ruf­fles took to the ramp at Valentino’s show. With wear­able fab­ric and myr­iad colours, the col­lec­tion was dreamy, al­most out of a fairy­tale. The col­lec­tion also has sym­bolic ref­er­ences to the por­traits of the Span­ish artist Fran­cisco de Zur­barán.

TWEED EF­FECT

Ger­man de­signer Karl Lager­feld’s show for Chanel saw the use of tweed fab­ric. Can­otier hats were matched with jack­ets made of the rough woolen fab­ric. Even wed­ding gowns were ac­ces­sorised with match­ing hats for a re­fined and un­usual look.

SEXY SLITS

Ev­ery dress show­cased on the run­way, dur­ing the Ralph & Russo show was per­fect for Hol­ly­wood roy­al­ties to flaunt on the red car­pet. Slinky, sexy gowns with that risqué slit had all that it takes to be an avant garde.

FOR THE MADE­MOI­SELLE

Chris­tian Dior’s col­lec­tion, in­spired by the fash­ion of the ‘40s, brought back the peter pan col­lars and the solid colours to the ramp. The flowy sil­hou­ettes with the fem­i­nine sleeves ex­uded el­e­gance, rem­i­nis­cent of that pe­riod.

MADE TO MEA­SURE

For de­signer Gior­gio Ar­mani, the fo­cus was on tai­lor­ing. From pen­cil skirts, strap­less col­umn dress to tai­lored trousers, ev­ery gar­ment seen on the run­way was per­fected to the T. More­over, all dresses were ac­ces­sorised with an em­bla­zoned skull cap fea­tur­ing a veil made of net.
