1950s dresses + yellow + an airplane: must be couture!

We could spend hours looking at all the couture collections- after all couture is all about attention to detail and superb craftsmanship. But for those a little pushed-for time, here is a mini round-up of the highlights so far.

Chanel typically went OTT on the set front with Karl Lagerfeld showing off a beautifully-blue toned beaded collection in an airplane. It kind of reminded us a tiny bit of the SS12 underwater collection with some nods to Chanel classics past.

Meanwhile, one of the colours set to define SS12 dominated the Armani Prive and Versace shows. We’re calling it sherbet lemon. We love the mixture of 1950s shapes (such as structured tops and pencil skirts) and futuristic fabrics and space-age detailing- also created in a retro-style kind of way…think the 1950s Festival of Britain Skylon.

Meanwhile, Christian Dior is still playing the classic card (much like its SS12 show) but we like it and it’s super glamorous. Regarde!

No need for emergency exits - fly Chanel!

Amazing and classic Dior. J'adore.

1950s London + the futuristic Skylon tower (wish it was still there!)

Reminds me slightly of Armani Prive

Spacey and super strong (no frills here!) at Versace Couture
