HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE
HAUTE COUTURE SHOW

“Haute Couture is Paris”
The Fall-Winter 2018/19 Haute Couture collection imagined by Karl Lagerfeld brings to life inspirations from the sights and sounds of Paris. House ambassadors Penélope Cruz, Lily-Rose Depp, Vanessa Paradis and Pharrell Williams were among the first to see the collection beneath the dome of the Institut de France at the Grand Palais in Paris.

HIGH PROFILE SILHOUETTE

Zippers are a statement feature of the Fall-Winter 2018/19 Haute Couture collection, slashing through the silhouettes and transforming the look of tweed suits and evening gowns. Embroidered with braid, they run down jacket sleeves to reveal extra-long fingerless gloves and contrasting linings in silk or brocade. Dresses are made to the same design, with slits up the side revealing embroidered mini-skirts underneath.

VARIATIONS ON A NECKLINE

Karl Lagerfeld designed a series of neckline variations for the Fall-Winter 2018/19 Haute Couture collection. There are high collars reminiscent of the ceremonial dress worn by the Institute of France’s academicians; and Victorian lace collars paired with puff sleeves, echoing the fashions worn by Parisian women. Tab collars, jabots, and bow collars structure the silhouette, while wide, feather-embroidered collars falling over the shoulders create a softer line.
