Haute couture fashion week has arrived. From exquisitely crafted dresses to conceptual, state-of-the-art separates in the wildest of fabrications, expect to see theatrical moments both on and off the runway. Day one has already brought us Emma Watson putting a more casual spin on the highest of high fashion. 

To attend the Schiaparelli fall 2022 couture show, the 32-year-old actor chose an eye-catching ensemble that was the perfect mix of luxury and streetwear style. The standout item was an immediately recognizable black blazer equipped with power shoulders and monumental lapels, from the opening look of Schiaparelli’s spring 2022 couture collection. To balance out the dramatic piece, Watson threw on a crisp white collared shirt, skinny grey jeans, and a chunky pair of black leather Dr. Martens Chelsea boots.

For the modern couture client, it’s more about owning perfectly-cut pieces than making a statement in a voluminous gown (though that’s still an exceptional look, if it fits the mood). By pairing her whimsical Schiaparelli with everyday staples, Emma made her couture look as wearable as it was attention-grabbing.
