Hola|Hi|Aloha|Ciao|Salut|你 dresses are synonymous with Haute Couture, and the trends we saw in Paris will dominate this year. Get to know them before you see them on the red carpets.
To choose just one word to define Haute Couture Fashion Week without thinking, I would choose magic. That which is woven into the perfect creation of dresses and suits that go from being a dream to a seductive reality; Each stitch, fabric, appliqué and precious stone are woven to give life to an unexpected design that requires a large number of hours, in the hands of tireless artisans who materialize garments that feed our ability to dream and desire. Haute Couture continues to be an industry that appeals to our hopes and wishes for great aspiration. It is longing, passion and, without a doubt, magic.
Dresses with wide and voluminous skirts.
With more countries starting to open their doors and major events taking their (almost) natural course in person, it is inevitable to think that some of the works of art that we have seen in the Haute Couture shows in Paris for the autumn season 2021, Let’s see them again in great artists and celebrities on a red carpet. If so, one of the trends in dresses that we will not stop seeing will be the large, wide and voluminous skirts.
A style with a lot of bombast, with a classic touch of a princess, where we can see from equally elegant but shorter dresses and with a more rock and irreverent style, like that of Jean Paul Gaultier; to the wide tulle patterns (a fabric very present in almost all the collections this season) by Giambattista Valli or Alexis Mabille.
‘High and low’: double silhouette
As we mentioned previously, the skirts will be the center of attention next season in the clothing of high seams, and Zuhair Murad, Giambattista Valli and Ronald van der Kemp give us the reason. On this occasion, with this double silhouette cut where they mix an illusion of long skirt with a mini dress. The necessary sumptuousness that is needed to not pass unnoticed, but at the same time highlighting your long legs will be achieved with these models that seem trampleto, with that long-eyed, dark, dark, dark, upward, to see the front side with a mini dress that will be the same as shocking. An attractive contrast between bulky forms and slender silhouettes.
Shine, a lot of shine.
Imagining a Haute Couture collection without sparkles of small crystals seems impossible and, as such, fashion houses presented more than one look with these stunning details. There is no special color for them, since they are all worth to shine more, but the fluid silhouettes, which bet on a waterfall fall, were chosen by designers such as Maria Grazia Chiuri for Christian Dior and Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga, who reopened the sacred doors of the Haute Couture house of this firm, after 53 years of hiatus.
The color black has not been lacking either, on the contrary, it has been one of the great protagonists in a variety of dresses and other garments. The purity of its tonality is unmistakable and highlights the effortless elegance that it already has and that elevates any suit. Sculptural dresses that reveal particular silhouettes and for which, as we see in Schiaparelli, Balenciaga and Alexandre Vauthier only require a great and unique complement to finish off the look.
