I’m celebrating this Friday morning with some of my favourite couture looks presented this week in Paris, dreamy graphics at Giambattista Valli, sharp romanticism at Christian Dior, and beautiful whites at Valentino. Though couture might feel lightyears away for most people beautiful dreams and inspiration are both for free. On another note I’m loving that some couture has taken a smarter and cleaner path, though the simplicity I wouldn’t underestimate the handcrafts, it’s still there for sure.

The buzz of 2011

The most buzzed about shoes-to-fill of 2011 in the fashion industry has to be who’s gonna take the lead as creative director at Dior after Galliano’s sudden break-up. After 9 months of speculations latest rumor has it that Marc Jacobs, Tisci and others are out of the running and that Raf Simons is in discussions for the job.
If this turn out to be true I think it’s a little odd match, clean and minimalist Raf Simons at extravagant Dior? Personally I hope he stays in his seat at Jil Sander’s and continue to deliver his beautiful minimalist collections with a touch of couture.

Jil Sander Fall 2011

Raf Simons presented his fall collection for Jil Sander in Milan today and not very surprisingly I like it even though I was much more excited about their spring collection. Many black looks and darker colors, clean cut as usual and the knitwear and patterns give me alpine vibes. Some of the looks reminds me of the outfits Tilda Swinton wears in the beautiful movie I Am Love. Notice the blue/green eyeshadow, nice!
