Couture fashion week is back with a bang. On Sunday night (4 July) Virgil Abloh began couture autumn/winter 2021 proceedings with his star-studded Beige path featuring cameos from Bella Hadid, Amber Valletta, Honey Dijon, and also a performance by M.I.A. The actors took their corresponding road design turns outside the place, with Bella Hadid altering from her electric blue velvety Off-White check out a basic grey mini and also knee-highs.
The exact same evening, Pieter Mulier debuted his really initial program at the helm of Alaïa. The Belgian-born designer offered a fresh make over; reintroducing the “democratisation” that your home had in the ’80s by offering on the street– all eyes seeing.
Schiaparelli was revealed bright and early on Monday, adhered to by Dior as well as Giambattista Valli. Outside the shows, visitors were dressed to the nines– as is normal for couture.
Tuesday saw Margaret Qualley step into the fabled role of Chanel’s couture bride, and Demna Gvasalia resurrected couture at Balenciaga to much acclaim on Wednesday. Likewise in the pipeline: Kerby Jean Raymond’s inaugural Haute Couture Pyer Moss showcase, and also Kim Jones’s Fendi Haute Couture follow-up.
