J-Lo, Versace lead Paris’ haute couture revival
Question of the Day
Donatella Versace injected a little bad-girl attitude for Atelier Versace’s fall-winter show Sunday, which showcased a voluminous ball gown in double duchesse silk coated with black silicon.
Elsewhere, it was all about revealing slits - and a couple of over-the-top blue fur coats with a dazzling organza and mink patchwork.
Some of the asymmetrical looks worked well - like a column dress slashed at the front with one leg covered like a hybrid pant.
It was great, creative couture debut from up-and-comer Stephanie Coudert.
The French fashion designer from Belleville, a down-market district of Paris, impressed critics with a decidedly upmarket collection that included medieval-style cone hats and delicate, beautifully constructed coats.
Set in a 19th century mansion, the show featured a sumptuous teal green silk column dress that softly encased the model.
The cuts were finessed. One navy woolen coat sported such long, generous lapels that they almost looked draped.
Fred Sathal competed with Versace for the most excessive show of the day.
The former opera costume designer has fashionistas gasping at one chunky fur coat made only from sewn-on animal tails.
Otherwise she continued with her “boho luxury” styles, including cocktail dresses with slightly random sequins and beads. Hand-dyeing gave a nice edge to a Mandarin-collared column coat, but some of the embellishments looked haphazard.
