LUXURYCULTURE.COM - Vive Haute Couture!


Who says couture is dead? The Paris catwalks this month were alive with a fusion of innovative design and time-honored savoir faire. We select the best of “luxury week” from both the catwalk and from the Place Vendome jewelers.

“It’s about opulence and the flexibility of the body. This is the main theme of the collection. But this is luxury for life, not creativity for creativity’s sake.”
- Karl Lagerfeld

“I’m having a floral moment,” said John Galliano of his collection for Christian Dior, which presented women as flowers in tulip skirts, petals at the hips and a garden of vibrant colours.

“The Paris woman is everywhere today. Everywhere but Paris,” said Jean Paul Gaultier of his French-referenced collection. He emphasized what differentiates this collection from ready to wear: “What is couture? It’s for the body; it’s a construction like the work of an architect.”
