Spring 2017 Haute Couture

Haute Couture collections took over Paris Fashion Week for the most dazzling and glamorous works ever seen from a host of select designers. Dior under the leadership of Maria Grazia Churi was dark and moody for the house while Pierpaolo Piccioli held the helm at Valentino staying true to the house's aesthetic singlehandedly.

Jackets-  Designers continue to borrow from the boys and Couture was no different. From matching to distinctly different, jackets pulled gave a bit of polish to several looks.

Tiers -
This cascading look from shoulders to skirt has gained popularity over the seasons and is likely to stick around.

One-arm -
Asymmetry took over the catwalk with more than five designers churning out collections with one-sided sleeves juxtaposed against a bared shoulder or half-sleeve.

Long Coats - Outerwear for spring came in form of lightweight and bedazzled long coats being the perfect foil for the summer chill.

Puffy Sleeves - Puffed up shoulder sleeves dominated Couture collections from the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier to Armani Prive.

Spring Flowers - Nothing spells Spring like seeing flowers in bloom and they were littered all over the runways of Couture collections.

Pleats - From scrunched, loose to knife, pleats gathered on a multitude of dresses and skirts for Spring 2017 couture.

Side Slits - Couture collections are never complete without a touch of sexy and this usually comes in the form of skin and thigh baring slits with the most popular being the side slit.

Sequins - Head-to-toe glittery ensembles from beaded embroidery to sequins denote the glamour of Couture collections.

Off the Shoulder - Designers continue to pay homage to the current erogenous zone with the enormous production of off-the-shoulder frocks and tops.
