So I decided against reviewing every designers collection for recent Autumn/Winter 2011/2012 Paris Couture Fashion Week, I felt it was a little time consuming and I feel I have other topics and things to share that I'd like to be blogging about over the next few days!
Instead, I decided to just share collections that really stood out to me (in a good way) and my thoughts and favourite pieces.
Alexis Mabille's collection would actually have to be my favourite of this Paris Couture week. His collection was just to me everything I think of 'Couture collections' to embody - it told a story and the whole collection had such whimsy and a strong central theme running through it, it wasn't a large collection but this allowed for more attention on the amazing pieces that were there and helped keep them all feeling part of one collection.
I also loved the animal inspired trend throughout this collection, the use of furs, feathers and prints was just perfect!
There was one stand out look for me that I have come to decide is actually my favourite garment of the whole Couture Fashion Week. I love the simplistic silhouette of this as well as the black and white, I am also just loving animal prints at the moment especially when it can be refined to such an elegant level. I also love the use of feathers that somehow seem to both blend in with, yet at the same time juxtapose against the fur.
