Haute couture season is the most wonderful time of the year. Seeing amazingly intricate, creative extravagant designs makes me feel hopeful—about the future of couture, fashion and life in general.
Italian designer Riccardo Tisci presented a collection that transported me to that place where all is right with the world via a Japanese inspired collection modeled by an all-Asian cast.
The collection featured ten looks created for the woman who enjoys making a grand entrance and exit with each look possessing intricate detailing on the front, in shades of cream, off-white, pale lilac and lemon, and in the back with electrifying hits of chartreuse, bright orange and fuchsia.
The looks were created using thousands of matte sequins, pearls covered in georgette and delicate, wispy feathers adorning skirts.
Tisci used a silhouette and aesthetic similar to the one employed in his Fall 2010 couture collection yet the results were so very different.
While I appreciate that Tisci used an all-Asian cast I’m looking forward to the day when it becomes more than just a gimmick.
