Paris Haute Couture SS17

From runway to moodboard

Paris Haute Couture SS17 From runway to moodboard

An old photo, the memory of a masquerade ball in Venice in the 50s. A soap-opera popular in the 80s. Snapchat obsession and emoticons that replace the words. The beautiful Indian Moghul gardens. The boudoir of Maria Amalia of Saxony in the Capodimonte museum. The art in all its forms from classical Greek mythology to Giacometti sculptures, the geometries created by Ester Socker, through the nineteenth century portraits of native Indian women wearing Victorian dresses. These are just some of the inspirations turned into wonderful clothes shows during the haute couture's week just ended in ParisDiscover them below.
