Schiaparelli Couture Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection

Those ankle strapped heels! Honestly, that is the first thing we notice when we begin to peruse the Schiaparelli Couture fall/winter 2015-2016 collection that was newly presented on the Paris Couture Fashion Week. Actually, from the first piece we realized that we are looking at something incredibly beautiful here, a line-up of outfits that certainly fit all that couture is meant to be. There are the traditional embroidered elements combined with the modern trends that have been sweeping the fashion world for months now. Gauzy organza, plunging necklines, see through skirts, velvets and ankle cropped pants; it matters not which trend we are looking at, only that all that we see is so very fitting to the theme presented overall. It was the debut collection for Bertrand Guyon, of the house Elsa Schiaparelli. The velvets came out in abundance, from the reds to the blacks, the stars on the shoulders and plunging sweetheart necklines. Valentino was what trained him and now Guyon is ready to spread his wings and fly!

The Schiaparelli Couture fall 2015 collection has been called “Le Theatre d’Elsa” in remembrance of the days when the playful founder of the house was the darling of the fashion world, the collection bringing in references from the heyday of the house, with the longer lines and tailored designs. We have to admit, Guyon has done a rather magnificent job at it all.

We notice a trend with the fur in this collection, bringing in a rather intriguing oddity to the ensembles. There was a shocking pink mink sweater that the collection saw towards the end, with hearts carved into it. The old Hollywood glamour was captured significantly well, something we can certainly feel great about as we decide on the best look that suits our individual tastes. Throughout the collection we spy intriguing designs, from the ornate deep green satin suit with the golden embroidery that somehow is the modern version of olden livery, oversize biker jacket designs, along with a whole lot of organza decorated pieces to give it all a bit more of a vintage feel. There was even a boxy top cut from crocodile that truly had our gazes captured by its unique allure, while checked tweed pieces came in a fuzzy fabric that simply begged one to caress and stroke.

One of the biggest oddities was the woman’s face on the furry skirt, a midi look hat bulked up the body, particularly when paired with a loose sating sweater. Tweed tartan appears a few times over, a piece or two reminding us that the Scots are still very much alive, even if most have entered the 21st century with the rest of us. At the end of the day though, we are still very much in love with those shoes, the peep toes and the d’Orsay, the silver and the darker alternatives. Combined with shiny silver ankle cropped pants with a sheer blouse tucked into it, we have to admit this is one look that we are more than ready to wear out, instead of leaving it on the runway as a gorgeous outfit to simply look at.
