Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week: what was in there for us?
Eccentric, unwearable. unnecessary...???
Only a handful of people in the world can afford it and yet the attendance at the biannual Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week shows is important and people seeking creativity and inspiration would not missed it for anything in the world.
Why is that?
Beyond the catwalk, the glimmer and the flashes, Couture is a form of Art and a Tradition in the universe of Fashion and Beauty. It epitomizes the highest quality of craftsmanship. Fashion designers can full express their artistic creativity without boundaries and immediate financial profits.
Haute Couture is made to inspire, not to be copied.
Here are our 4 favorite beauty looks from the Paris Fashion week and some ideas they inspired us.
A thick silver line enlightened the look of the models walking through a multitude of white orchids. The sophistication of this eye-liner contrasted with the simplicity of this effortless and natural hairdressing to create a delicate and inspiring beauty look.
Karl Lagerfeld took us back to the eighties with this structured haircut as a reference to the boy bands of that time. And what would be an eighties look without a touch of bright gold and silver line on the eyelid?
The Italian brand found the perfect way to beautify the ordinary ponytail. A strand of hair is used as a loose ponytail holder to gather the models’ long, wavy hair. This ethereal hairdressing seems to come straight out a Renaissance painting.
The make-up artists at Armani Privé created an inspiring look accessible for everyone. Thanks to a dark eyeshadow used as a liner, they draw a blurred shape at the extremity of the eye. These cat eyes would be perfect for any evening social.
How to take advantage of these trends for yourself?
Focus on what you like and imagine how you could apply some of the ideas to you in your Life. Maybe not the full look, maybe just a slight detail that can give your usual look a refreshed edge and be fun to wear...
The eccentric hair at Chanel can become an effortless at first sight but structured bun, disordered strands of hair harmoniously swirling around it. A slight silver line on the eyelid can enlighten a dark skin tone...
