The Haute Couture Spring 2009

January 27, 2009

I usually look to haute couture as a platform to the season's mood rather than actual trend. I have to say that the aesthetics are slowly deteriorating but still holds on to the essence of raw talent... I'm namely talking about Givenchy.

I really have nothing more to say except I love when Tisci does romance, because it's never just glamorous; there's always a twisted morbid vibe. Flowery runway (genius) + ghastly makeup + potential bridal gowns + darkness and sweetness making love + subtle flowy material clashing with exposing bondage = you've got a killer show.

I always look forward to MMM's work - an unbiased, unconventional presentation. Never are his pieces directly linked with one another, but the textures that are so commonly used in his work help unify the cohesiveness.   I am dying for the white blazer and the far right dress (really resembles a vest... thing that can be thrown over almost anything to instantly bling-ify your outfit). I somehow missed the destroyed denim jumpsuit in the picture; you have to check it out - another great piece.

John... I complain about him a lot lately, yet I always post about him - it's like a trainwreck you can't stop staring at. This collection is an improvement of what we've seen the past few years, but I want to mourn the lost raw edge and power in his clothing. His haute couture shows used to give me chills; it made me love fashion. 

(SS06 Couture, FW05 Couture, SS06 RTW) I wish Galliano went back to this...

Thanks for leaving Ted and I all those questions! We're feeling extremely inspired to get in front of the Macbook this weekend. Tomorrow is James' birthday, and we'll be in Disneyland all day!

  5. With the exception of that powder blue heel, I though the Dior show was a MESS! It's too costumey and not enough innovation...I feel like I've seen all these looks somewhere else...

  10. I love Givenchy, Lacroix an Dior shows. But yep, John Galliano has made more stunning shows in the past.. bte, I like a lot those utfits from FW05 Couture and SS06 collections *.*

  11. If you really want to lament John Galliano's decline, check out spring 2007's couture collection vs. this year's. Incredibly depressing.

  12. all of these were amazing I thought. I loved margiela and dior though - amazingness.

  13. i'm loving all of the looks minus Tisci, i just don't understand covering the models face. haha, it kind of freaks me out.

  14. Love Dior a lot...Great post though. They're all so talented.
