Paris’ Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014 shows were filled with stunning creations from a selection of the world’s top designers, and seats were filled with some of the most prominent names in fashion. Haute Couture week is considered one of the most anticipated fashion week of the year, and it comes as no surprise that designers brought their A game to the runways this July in Paris. We couldn’t help but notice three trends that emerged from the runways this season: sparkles, side-slits, and avant garde looks.
The “Angelina leg” was in full effect during Paris fashion week. Designers were loving and embracing the daring slit – with Valentino [middle photo] taking his slit up to the abdomen. With slits like this becoming all the rage, women should prepare to start toning their legs to keep up with the growing trend.
Here at The Untitled Magazine, we can’t resist a great sparkle and, thankfully for us, the couture shows were full of them. Chanel [first photo] shined the brightest as they put a fantastic, sequin emblazoned blazer on top of a long sequined gown down the runway. Other designers brightened up their color palette with sequins and embellished fabrics.
A little avant garde can go a long way – even if a designer throws one eccentric look into the mix, it can turn a rather drab show into something spectacular. Haute Couture (for those who don’t know) typically means a one-of-a-kind, specially-fitted look, while “avant garde” refers to a new or unusual look. When the two are thrown together, it creates magic.
