Paris Haute Couture Autumn/winter 2011

A quick peek at what was being shown in Paris at the beginning of the month.

The Haute Couture ranges are often seen as being a bit out there but I am told they give us an idea of what the ready to wear fashions will look like a few seasons down the line. Calmed down versions that is. Good news for Aka Tombo fans as it seems Armani and I are singing from the same hymn book with a Japanese/Western mash up!

It would appear however that Armani was one of the few to embrace flamboiant head gear with Valentino opting for very simple yet feminine wire headdresses woven through French pleats.

Dior chose to keep his thinking firmly in the box.

and Giambattista Valli going for the simplest of simple with a mere head wrap, which is gangster pretty I guess.

All the Chanel girls were decked out in boater hats sitting right at the back of their head in fabrics matching their outfits, which honestly I find too dull to warrant a picture. Sorry Chanel.
