Atelier Versace, Schiaparelli and Christian Dior have kicked off the Paris Spring/Summer 2016 Couture Fashion schedule.
Carla Bruni, Anna Wintour, Kate Bosworth, Olivia Palermo and Christian Louboutin were all in attendance for Schiaparelli this morning. Schiaparelli have said that “the idea of a table laid out for a feast gives life to a collection full of grace” which was evident with collection filled with fruit and vegetable prints, cutlery and tablelclothes and a backdrop of china plates on the runway. “The very essence of Haute Couture is about creating the extraordinary out of the ordinary. Each course is transcended by delicate opulence. Beauty and good taste merge to match exquisite silhouettes awakening the senses. The delectable can only be touched with the eyes. Indulgence challenges one’s taste. Yesterday the basement of Elsa Schiaparelli’s hôtel particulier was made into a trattoria to host intimate dinners, and today enjoying a great meal with friends may strangely become an act of resilience.”
