Fall/Winter Haute Couture

Dior

Fall/Winter Haute Couture

October 8, 2009

Top looks for fall and winter this year can be punched in with ten key trends: Black is back, in a big way. Short, including cool winter short shorts. Glitter—not bling—with sequins, metallic fabrics and nailhead studs. Shoulders, big, sharp, padded, rounded or square, but definitely there. Leather—from bike to boardroom: pants, skirts, blousons and coats. Lace, everywhere from head to fingers and toes. Leopard-prints, patterns and faux fur. Nostalgic 1940s glamour, like movie stars of yore. Really hot Red-lipstick, fire engine, crimson, blazing red. And finally, Fancy Footwear—perilous heels, platform soles, and thigh-high cuissardes.

Does France Today ever review the fashion shows? The uninitiated like myself need help. If someone told me these photos were from the 80's, I would believe them. What makes these collections innovative or different?
