Up-and-Coming Haute Couture Collections to Look Out for
Despite all the world's craziness, it didn't stop top designers and upcoming artists from introducing their new haute couture collections.
This year's haute couture collections are dazzling!
We have rounded up the haute couture collections you have to peep for inspiration when it's time to step out into the world.
From the delicate and ethereal collection in Dior's short film, which featured 37 new couture creations to Dolce&Gabbana's colorful summer collection, there's something for everyone.
Alexis Mabille - Attitude
A stand-out designer who caught my eye was Alexis Mabille. A French fashion designer who graduated early from Chambre Syndicate de la Couture Parisienne and then went on to train with Nina Ricci and Ungaro.
Mabille went on to design accessories for Dior while collaborating with other big-name designers like Yves Saint Laurant and Lancome before launching his own label in 2005.
His 2020 Collection dubbed "Attitude" is sophisticated and alluring. He notes the call for optimism and positivity during these hard times. His 26 piece collection was debuted a day before the online show, where he used a single model to walk the runway.
Schiaparelli - Collection Imaginaire
Daniel Roseberry, Artistic Director, appointed in April 2019 for Schiaparelli, sat in Washington Square Park and sketched a collection that could have been in the promotional video for the 31 piece collection presented in photos.
The designs for post-COVID will be on a made-to-order basis for future events. The looks are daring with exciting silhouettes that leave a desire to see the designs come to life. We hope to see what they do in future, with award shows, once the pandemic is under control.
The Italian designer never disappoints with his beloved signature feminine and girly designs. This 18 piece collection dubbed La Ville Lumière abounded in tulle, gorgeous bows, and billowing fabric draped the model with a matching face mask for brides and non-brides alike.
Valli's collection was inspired by and dedicated to the world of couture. He found optimism while on lockdown and said, “nature continues and blooms with beauty.”
The French luxury line debuted its Haute Couture collection on a canal boat that live-streamed on TikTok, a first for the video platform. The over the top performance included 50 dancers and a performance by French pop singer Yseult. Although the performance didn't go as planned, lasting only 20 minutes, it did bring an incredible amount of attention to the collection.
The looks were pulled from existing pieces to round out the collection.
Now that things have returned back to normal, for the most part, we can start enjoying the little things that we took for granted before. Being able to see these haute couture collections feels like a nice breath of fresh air that was needed after the last two years!
