My Favorite Fall 2014 Couture Collections

Fall 2014’s couture collections flooded the runways of Paris last week. Dazzling pieces of many structures and colors made my mind drift into elegant fantasies. Among the many showcases, three collections in particular peaked my interest.

1. Chanel

One can always count on Chanel to create futuristic yet timeless designs. The design house’s signature tweed was featured in several looks. The more formal pieces were embellished with plenty of jewels and shiny materials. Sandals fastened with ribbons, messy tomboy hair, and small, backward caps were worn by every model.

2. Zuhair Murad

Zuhair Murad is a favorite among celebrities for his sleek and sexy dresses. See-through fabrics maximized the “wow” factor of classy styles in this collection. Glitter and sequin material accents made the garments feel even more red carpet ready. The models walked with tight ponytails and not a single piece of jewelry; the dresses spoke for themselves.

3. Armani Privé

My final and unexpected favorite was the Armani Privé show. The color palette consisted of only three colors: black, white, and red. The beautiful and slightly gothic pieces progressed from business fancy to veiled glamour. Ankle strap heels, various handbags and jewelry, and wrist-length gloves were styled in different combinations for each look.
