After 4 days of fashion shows haute couture finished on an optimistic note and with the Valentino show, which closed a creative season, in which the savoir-faire of the ateliers was highlighted in a way that has never been seen before, with grace. The roman fashion house has announced the separation of its duo of creators. The final shared bow, for Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier paolo Piccioli. The designer has been officially announced to be moving to the house of Dior to take the reins of the artistic direction for feminine ready-to wear and haute- couture. According to Pier Paolopiccioli he will continue alone to follow the direction of Valentino. This season, Chanel chose to put the work of the little hands at the forefront in reconstructing the ateliers on rue Cambon, in the heart of the Grand Palais. Karl Lagerfeld wished to pay them homage in dedicated the collection to them, one applauded by actors such as Will Smith and Jessica Chastain.Dior chose equally to present their collection in the emblematic salons of l’avenue Montaigne. A collection stamped with a particular emotion as it signified the end of the duo between Serge Ruffieux and Lucie Meier who took the helm after the departure of Raf Simons last October. A modern elegance permeated the collections. Giambattista Valli, wanted to celebrate happiness, in order to stave off the difficult times of these last few months, with his ultra-glamorous young tsarinas.A joie de vivre expressed itself in Schiaparelli, with a wire conductor, a reference to Elsa Schiaparelli’s famous Circus collection of the summer of 1938, with a brilliant display, of light and sublime colour. Jean Paul Gaultier also proposed a return to real couture, through the search for new materials…and an ode to nature. Alexandre Vauthier, gave his vision: young and urban with a military style, yet glamorous.A youthfulness was found at Elie Saab, who closed his presentation with the first couture collection for children, promising a new clientele and an assured future!!!Music royalty free / Bandit & Nikit - 2016
