From Elie Saab in Paris to Valentino in Rome, Haute Couture Week sent its share of lust-worthy pieces down the runway. We’re counting down just some of the top trends of the season to give you some inspiration for glamourous nightwear.
Where: Elie Saab
Nobody does glamourous nightwear like Elie Saab and this season offered a generous helping of sexy gowns and mini dresses. Extreme attention to detail and meticulous tailoring made this collection one of our favourites of the week.
One shoulder dresses
Valentino went back to its roots in Rome where Valentino Garavani himself founded the couture label in 1960. Views of the Piazza Mignanelli set the perfect atmosphere for the summery clothes and accessories to follow. Our favourite? The one shoulder dresses which were inspired by Ancient Rome, equipped with golden wreaths and gladiator sandals.
Where: Jean Paul Gaultier
What could be more Parisian than a striped shirt? Jean Paul Gaultier took it back to basics this season with what he knows best. Stripes were found in tights, the lapels of blazers, skirts and even fisherman caps.
Where: Atelier Versace
Donatella Versace took the couture label to the next level by embracing the best parts of the 1970s – maxi dresses and platform heels. The colour palette remained true to Versace’s style in soft pastels and silhouettes.
With a star-studded ensemble including Kristen Stewart, Stella Tennant, Lara Stone and Cara Delevingne, the casino quickly took it’s form in true Chanel style. The bouclé jacket has become an icon, ever since it was created by Coco Chanel herself in 1954. Karl Lagerfeld continues this traditional each year and puts his own quirky spin on an old classic.
