Suit up for Couture..*

by Maxime_Morel

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:

_ARC0655.450x675

_ARC0634.450x675

_ARC0559.450x675

_ARC0713.450x675

_ARC0534.450x675

_ARC0519.450x675

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:

_ARC0603.450x675

_ARC0645.450x675

_ARC0755.450x675

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!
