From Elie Saab’s delicate visual representation of femininity to Viktor & Rolf’s bold adornments, Vogue.me takes a look into the most impressive looks from Day 3.
Defining decadence as, “the excess, the artifice, the decay”, Galliano showcased an artful representation of chaotic visuals beautifully melded together by traditional hand embroideries, feather fronds and reflective fabrics coupled with a mirrored runway. As always, a delightful, kaleidoscopic sensory overload.
Celebrating the magic of femininity, Elie Saab showcased a beautiful array of corals, complemented in this look by a delicately placed assortment of florals on the bodice. While seemingly delicate and airy, the look is cleverly paired with a powerful cape to provide extra punch.
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
Gaultier brings a modern iteration of iconic nautical themes, dropping the signature buoys and opting for sharp-edged tailoring as can be seen on the striking shoulders of the blazer.
VIKTOR & ROLF
Adorning their dresses with emboldened statements such as this one screaming “NO” on an opulent ballgown, Viktor & Rolf brought a touch of humour to beautiful crafted design .
Blending 80’s-inspired silhouettes with underwater opulence, Murad’s cascading colour palette of deep blues, corals and pinks featuring multi-layered silk chiffon resembled a colorful ripple of the sea.
For his first couture show, Olivier Rousteing’s models stormed the runway with silver and white toned make-up, the traditional sharp-edged shoulders and some extremely literal pearl-shaped dresses. Topped with a side-swept hat this look showcases strength and mystery in natural beauty.
