From skydiving models to meme fashion, everything you missed from Paris Haute Couture Week

Chanel's Haute Couture fashion show

Chanel’s Haute Couture fashion show

Paris Haute Couture Week felt like a sea change. After over a year of the fashion industry being blighted by Covid most of the shows were held in person, and it was almost like a return to normality.

Couture promises escapism. The outfits are extremely expensive, one of a kind, and you have to be invited by the Chambre Syndicale to present a collection. It’s not really an opportunity for fashion houses to set trends or show us what we might be wearing this season, but rather a chance to go all-out in design and creativity.

With extreme fashion, famous models and quirky beauty choices, this couture week had it all…

Sky-high hair at Giambattista Valli

Giambattista Valli brought Sixties-inspired absurdism into its beauty looks, with models wearing comically high beehives. As for the collection itself, it’s everything we’ve come to expect from the Italian

Dressed in a Hawaiian-style Valentino shirt, “Schitt’s Creek” co-creator Dan Levy kicked off Paris Fashion Week Menswear via video from LA on Tuesday last week. Calling himself a “lifelong fan of fashion,” Levy recounted how his own experiences of costuming the characters for his hit show — including the high-concept looks he donned as David Rose — had given him even more respect for the role that clothes play in people’s lives. “A well-constructed garment can help you stand a little taller, carry yourself with a little more confidence, and express who you are without ever having to say a word,” he said.

From Fit Pics to Fashion Week, Personal Style Is Better Than Any Trend

If the fall 2021 shows prove anything, it’s that emotion and poetry are back. At Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquière, a designer who popularized total-look style with his stylist Marie-Amélie Sauvé in the aughts and teens, pivoted to a more melange look, coupling tulle skirts with hoodies, crystal embroideries with leather jackets, and poet tops with mannish blazers. Over at Ghesquière’s alma mater Balenciaga, Demna Gvasalia continues to reflect true street style back at his customers, playing up strange, sometimes surreal, pairings like medieval armor with jeans and sweatpants. Julien Dossena’s Paco Rabanne collection was glitzy in a real way, slip dresses with boyish coats and fluffy kerchiefs. Marine Serre’s upcycled tartans look more like the way real people might clash plaids than the refined Prince of Wales checks popular in the early 2010s. Collina Strada styled its collection in the vein of its designer, Hillary Taymour, while Ibrahim Kamara, arguably
