Haute Couture Fashion Week: What to remember from this first day of shows

Rebirth at Schiaparelli

At the head of the Schiaparelli house for three years, Daniel Roseberry titled this show “Renaissance“. And for good reason, the show took place outside the walls, at the Museum of Decorative Arts, which hosts a major retrospective on Elsa Schiaparelli, until January 2023. Double meaning therefore, of a rebirth of infinite creation for the fashion house.

On an amazing music of John Williams, the composer of Steven Spielberg and George Lucas, the models paraded in silhouettes full of femininity, between marked size, games of transparency and bustiers molded. The pearl dresses reveal a jewel woman, strong and fragile, while hats and other accessories take their place and mark a strong and clear statement.


Velvet sheaths corseted, asymmetrical silk negligees uncovering the breasts, flowers in accumulation … so many wonders lavished by Daniel Roseberry who concludes the show with these words: “Making beautiful things, making beauty, is not an easy thing. It is a privilege, for which I am infinitely grateful every day.

The time of a fashion show, Pieter Mulier, left the mother house of Azzedine Alaïa, to inaugurate a new address, at 15 Faubourg Saint-Honoré. And it is in the space still under construction that the show took place, with impressive front row, shared between friends of the house, Naomi Campbell to Farida Khelfa and talented designers, Matthieu Blazy to Pierpaolo Piccioli.

The silhouettes sublimate the body, between variations on the leotard and bodysuit … Sometimes mysterious in total black, sometimes in declinations of draped colors. We also found embroidered sequins, XXL beads and a sublimated woman, always.


Wisdom at Dior

Maria Grazia Chiuri, artistic director of Dior and committed feminist, could not turn a blind eye to current events when preparing her show. Committed to a better visibility of the work of female artists, the designer imagined a collection around the concept of the tree of life, a common thread in the work of Ukrainian artist Olesia Trofymenko. She sees it as a way to connect all forms of creations, cultures and to open a dialogue between those that everything seems to oppose.


The declinations of beige are punctuated with light touches of black, blue or pink. The dresses feature patchworks of lace and guipure. The silhouette consists of balloon sleeves, narrow waist, with the look of a wise girl. The embroideries sublimate the veils and the pleats give a crazy look to the silhouette.
