Haute Couture Collections Spring-Summer 2012

Day Three of Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2012.

Berenice Bejo was spotted at the Elie Saab show with former James Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko. Elie Saab unveiled a stunning array of sparkling pastel-colored ball gowns perfect for the red carpet. Saab says his latest collection was inspired by fairytales and meant to indulge modern-day princesses.

It’s a well-known fact that fashion feeds off cinema and vice versa. Maxime Simoens is a very precocious couturier. He likes telling stories, he adores the movies and he loves actreses. His age ? 27. He hates frivolous designs and classic materials. He prefers to play with cork and mosaics. His main obsession? Structure.

She’s new to the official Haute Couture calendar in Paris. Yiqing Yin likes deconstructing lace in order to recompose it and pair it with natural furs to produce something organic.

Haute couture pursues its dream, to be recognized as art, all the while knowing very well that it will never quite reach that goal.
