When Couture week begins in Paris in January and July, and especially in January, I indulge. The week offers luxurious expression of sartorial creativity and an escape from a month that while beloved for its offering of renewal can tend to drag and linger ever-so-slightly longer than desired.
Along with the announcement of the 89th Academy Award nominees early this morning (see the entire list here), the arrival of the spring couture collections finds me supposing which gowns seen on the runway may also be worn on the red carpet Sunday February 26th.
And so as Giambattista Valli’s began the week in Paris with a bountiful collection of infinite ruffles, feather-embroidered duchesse satin gowns revealing gams for days and fairy tale dresses that tempt us to drift to dream into fantasy, below are a few gowns that caught my eye. Stay tuned for more favorite from Paris Spring Couture Week in the coming days.
