She is feeling her Fantasy

Ah, the life that Couture week gives. It is like a fresh morning when the sun is shining and you just want to get out and seize the day. This is what Couture Fall/Winter 2022 gives me. Vibrancy, Creativity, and Fantasy. I cannot seem to get enough of Daniel Roseberry's Schiaparelli. The extravagance, the gold, the diverse casting. It's crazy how some designers can use the same ideas and it's too much or dare I say cheap, but Roseberry manages to make it seem artistic and forward-thinking. The switch to collaborations with Jean-Paul Gaultier's collections breathes new life into JPG's already iconic colours and shapes. His most recent collab with Sacai makes me miss Paris but also bends femininity into a modern-day romantic heroine vibe. Viktor & Rolf's OTT royal collection features these delicious embroideries and jewel details that scream 'too much!' but also 'have me now'. 

Fendi and Chanel offer fresh flirty looks with delicate embroidery but for the chic girl who still wants to get her hands dirty. Pyer Moss' first Couture collection marks the inclusion of an African American led house into the Couture schedule. Paying tribute to African American heritage and more specifically the inventions by African American inventors. The collection is camp but when you look closer the pieces are highly wearable to those who seek to. Balenciaga returns to Couture with a blast from the archival past. It's nice to see classic pieces through the eyes of creative director Denma Gvasalia. I am excited to see how it evolves moving forward. Iris Van Herpen is always a feature in the Couture calendar, being the epitome of fantasy and creation. The collections give me Oriental vibes as if scrolls of cranes and the Pheonix have come to life. Giambattista Valli, you can push a more editorial baby doll look with exaggerated hips, and yet look innocent and petite.

She is amazing
