Suit up for Couture..*
Now Men’s Fashion Week is over, it’s time for the Couture Shows.
Yesterday Versace had the honor of being the first to show its Spring 2013 Couture line. Normally ‘Couture’-pieces are very ‘un-wearable’ for the (wo)man on the street. They’re often only suitable to wear to chique events such as the Oscars. Nevertheless, Donatella Versace was able to surprise me with a very wearable collection. She was definitely inspired by the upcoming trend of the ‘alpha females’. This was reflected in a lot of feminine suits with the typical Versace edginess, in Versace’s typical black or bright and bold fabrics.
Though I’d probably still not wear the suits to work, I can definitely see myself wearing them to a lunch or dinner date (especially that pink outfit!). Here are my favorites:
Of course in a Couture show, the red carpet dresses are always present. Because the fabric didn’t appeal to me, a lot of the dresses weren’t really my style. But some of among them were very playfull and fun, check these out:
I can’t wait to see what the other designers will bring to the table! Especially our Belgian pride: Raf Simons for Dior!
I’ll keep you posted!
