Best of Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014 Part II

I really adore some of the Maison Martin Margiela dresses, they go back with vintage oriental twist. The trademark masks - as usual - are visually beautiful. I like this collection more than the Spring couture collection, I think it has more soul, and definitely more wearable.

Best of Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2014 Part I

It seems that less and less designer interested in making Couture, and some may say it is slowly going to an end. This I must agree, even the Couture master like Christian Lacroix went bankrupt, the struggle to finding clients, often the richest of the richs, are getting so hard. And there are some Couture lines are going downhill (this season: Valentino/ most obvious in my opinion). Funny thing is, Dolce & Gabbana kept their Alta Moda exclusively private for their clients, but the leaked photos show that it is completely disappointed (for example, what is this? couture cow girl?), and maybe that's the reason it's private.

But there are still gems, I know, Christian Dior by Raf Simons. I'm begin to think that Raf is more suitable for Dior than Galliano (I still love both!). From a Jil Sander genius, we thought he couldn't represent Dior because minimalism is in his blood, but look at what he did now:

The beautiful Balenciaga menswear campaigns

Forget about the clothes of Womenswear that even Gisele can't make them look good, let's talk about Balenciaga menswear F/W 2014. Campaign with model Dzhovani Gospodinov shoot by Josh Olins. Very beautiful, eventhough it's more likely the style of Jil Sander and Stella McCartney ;)
