DIOR HAUTE COUTURE 

The show notes at Christian Dior made mention of flags, color, and optimistic emblems of national identity, all of which shined through in the collection’s color blocking, stripes, and tribal shades. Raf Simons combined bits and pieces from the global fashion culture, and the result is truly dynamic. 

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI HAUTE COUTURE 
Both flowers and colors are constants in Giambattista Valli’s work. But for the signature elements of his fifth couture collection, he reaped inspiration from porcelain, dishing up delectable Capodimonte whites, Wedgewood blues, multicolor Meissen-esque embroideries, and red Sèvres—like this hot-blooded draping gown. 

VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE
Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli are masters of finding the balance between understated and extravagant. Though the two focused on daywear this season, it was this luxurious number we found most mesmerizing.  

CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE
Karl Lagerfeld transported his audience from the Old World to the New by mixing silhouettes from various periods—especially the Edwardian and Victorian—with modern fabrications, such as origami-like organza, metallic-infused tulle, and a mix of pavéed sequins that resemble a cityscape when witnessed from afar.    

VIKTOR & ROLF HAUTE COUTURE
Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren marked their big return to couture with an all-black, highly conceptual show. But as is their trademark, the two didn’t compromise wearability in the name of their vision. This pairing of shorts and a cape is no exception.

ATELIER VERSACE
Showing skin is always in when it comes to Donatella Versace. For her couture show, the seductive dresses and embroidered bustiers were brilliantly and precisely crafted to show off the well-toned bodies underneath (which included none other than Naomi Campbell). 

ARMANI PRIVÉ
A going-bare approach was also applied at Armani Privé. But Mr. Armani took it in a very different direction, with his gauzy and tulle numbers. The Nude collection was Old Hollywood glamour for the modern woman. Though most of the pieces came in subtle soft shades, this black lace dress with a flared hemline took things from sensual to nearly sinful. 

GAULTIER PARIS
Jean Paul Gaultier visited the “David Bowie is” exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, and infused the legend’s Ziggy Stardust persona into this collection—the other half of which was his take on the Catwoman of the ’40s. The result was giant, cartoonish shapes in cheetah prints and rainbow colors.
