Couture High Notes


Alexandre Vauthier

Fashion month is slowly but surely crawling up on our calendars. Scrumptious appetizers have been already served in the form of exquisite haute couture looks.  An array of frothy tulles, swift silks, and glinting embellishments were amongst the ambrosial hors d’ouevres. I am leaving you with with a brief recap of what have been my top looks so far.

Back to Reality


“I’m trying to bring a lot of reality to Dior, which relates to how women live their lives today,” said Raf Simons to The Independent last weekend, and then he gave us AW14 Couture. Actions do speak louder than words… Let go of the idea that Couture is made to be worn solely to once in a life time occasions. Dior Fall 2014 Couture was a collection intended to be incorporated into women’s daily wardrobes. And isn’t that the most supreme expression of luxury? Buying a couture piece and mix matching it with ones day to day attires? 

As wearable as the pieces are, the craftsmanship and intricate detailing are still visible in the garments. The lines, the buttons, and the embroideries are there to remind us that it is still Couture we are talking about.

If there was something that made my heart jump, it would be the floor length coats. They were so elegant, so beautiful, so wearable! Yes, this was a collection designed for the women of today.

The Pick of the Week: Tee Shirt Earrings


“I fell. I fell in Dior.” Carrie Bradshaw 

I currently have the desire to splurge on Tee Shirt Earrings. I first saw them on the graceful Chloe Hill (www.bychill.com). The Fashion Market Editor at Instyle Australia had the original white pearl earrings. 

About a week ago, as I was dashing towards my gate in Heathrow Airport, I brought myself to make an oh-so-needed pit stop at the Dior store. I was hoping to refuel my energy and maybe tick the desired earrings off my “To Buy List” without the aggravating taxes! It seemed like a definite win-win situation. Unfortunately, as the sales assistant assured to me, the earrings are so popular that they sell like hot buns. Whenever they restock, they immediately run out of them. They only had a green pair left. The hunt for the white, or silver, or gold and silver tee shirt earrings is still on. This is why they had to make it to my Pick of The Week.

Uno de mis últimos deseos de lujo son los aritos Tee Shirt de Dior. Los vi por primera vez en Chloe Hill. La Editora de Moda de Instyle Australia tenía los originales aritos de perlas blancas. 

Hace más o menos una semana, mientras corría apresuradamente hacia mi puerta en el aeropuerto de Heathrow, me sentí obligada a hacer una parada técnica en la tienda de Dior. Tenía la esperanza de recobrar mis energías y tal vez de hacerme con una par de mis tan deseados pendientes y tax free! Lastimosamente, como me aseguró la dependienta, los aritos son tan populares que se venden como pan caliente. Tan pronto reciben una nueva tanda, como se agotan. Sólo les quedaba un par verde. Creo que mi deseo de tenerlos ha aumentado incluso más, por eso esta semana son mi pick of the week.
