The Sober Age of Couture

_ARC0408.450x675

Christian Dior

With the Spring/Summer 2013 Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris fresh in our minds, FAULT contemplates the new sober era of Paris couture.

Haute couture is fundamentally lavish and decadent by default. Catering to an audience for whom money is no object – a prerequisite in belonging to the notoriously exclusive club of couture clientele – luxury will always be a key part of its DNA. The recent seasons have, however, shown a fresh approach – the theatrics of yesteryear have been replaced by a simpler and more sober take on the subject. Paris is bursting with fresh ideas and nowhere else has the change been as obvious as in haute couture. As the 16 fashion houses took to the stage the trend towards new sobriety became clearer than ever.

Christian Dior

Giambattista Valli

It would be presumptuous to put all the ‘blame’ on just one man, but Raf Simons certainly has got something to do with it. Only presenting his second couture collection at Christian Dior this season, he has already demonstrated enormous talent and remarkable ability to learn new aesthetic languages and make them his own. Simons spent months studying his master Christian Dior, perhaps the most famous man of haute couture, and is now – respectfully – translating Dior’s vocabulary into a modern artistic expression. By reinventing the ‘New Look’ Simons put a fresh and relaxed spin on a-line skirts and cinched waists. Giambattista Valli also turned down the volume in his collection: while remaining loyal to his repertoire of opulent proportions and flower blossoms, he ditched his usual loud colour pallet for a less vocal combination of blacks and whites, creams and toned down pinks and yellows. It was still Valli at his best, but lighter and easier to digest.

_ARC1633.450x675

Valentino

YVL_8337.450x675

Elie Saab

The house of Valentino at the hands of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli has been promoting the new simplicity for seasons. Borrowing from the fashion repertoire of forest fairies, the ethereal beauties of pre-Raphaelite paintings and the golden age of couture, they re-imagined not just couture but Valentino’s own heritage. The mandatory red popped up in the shape of flirty strapless dresses that would have made Grace Kelly jump with joy. The go-to designer for the red carpet stylists, Elie Saab, masterfully covered up his glamour puss in long-sleeved grownup gowns and stuck to sober pastels without making discounts on his signature style of heavy beading and luxurious embroidery.

Chanel

_ARC0344.450x675

Chanel

While Dior, Valli and Valentino paid tribute to the golden age of couture, Karl at Chanel remained true to his usual habit of plagiarising himself. While we may be accustomed to Lagerfeld re-heating the same soup over and over again it was refreshing to see him try to adopt the same rhythm as the younger designers. The Chanel girl of the season is lovely – she covers up and she keeps her cool. She is grown up and sophisticated, even in the feathery fairy dresses (do we see a trend here?) of the finale set. Karl perhaps made the biggest statement of the season by sending out not one, but two brides in the finale, clearly expressing his views on same sex marriage.

_ARC0516.450x675

Versace

Even Donatella at Atelier Versace chose a more sober approach by experimenting with pinstripe suits (!). Naturally it was all gold embellished and provocatively over-decorated, but what would Versace be without being too much? Pants and pantsuits (with little less embellishment, naturally) were also seen at Armani Privé and Alexis Mabille, opening the door to a whole new set of ideas.

Alexis Mabille

There are many reasons why couturiers are exploring their more sober and sophisticated heritage. Undoubtedly John Galliano’s unceremonious dismissal from Dior in 2011 and Raf Simons’s subsequent appointment as the new Creative Director influenced the new aesthetic, as did the bankruptcy of Christian Lacroix in 2009. Both men were known as the pioneers of exuberant decadence, their catwalks often resembling the opera stage. Galliano’s dismissal marked the end of an era making way to new creativity. It may also have something to do with the inclusion of avant-garde fashion house Maison Martin Margiela to the couture schedule and it most definitely has a lot to do with the economic downturn of recent years. The younger designers in Paris have steered the ship to calmer seas – the future of Paris couture is respectful, both towards the female body and its own heritage.

Get the Dita Von Teese style

Dita Von Teese, or the Queen of Burlesque as she is frequently referred to by the press, is known for one thing first and foremost: she is the woman who, in her own words, “put the tease back into striptease”. With that image in mind, it may come as a surprise (to the ill-informed) to realise that von Teese actually has more than a few strings to her bow. In addition to her benchmark dancing routines, the natural blonde – who was famously married to Marilyn Manson -is also known for her skills as a costume designer and is an accomplished actress. No, we’re not taking about her plethora of sultry soft-core movies – Von Teese has deservedly won a best actress award at the Beverly Hills Film Festival  after featuring in the multi award-winning short film The Death of Salvador Dali.

Showcase Dress by Dita Von Teese


Her sense for style has also not gone unnoticed – Von Teese is a darling of the fashion press and has appeared on many of the best dressed lists, wearing some stunning pieces by the likes of Christian Dior and Marc Jacobs. She has walked the runway for the Los Angeles Fashion Week in 2004, the 2006 Milan Fashion week and – memorably – Paris fashion week in 2007, in which she modelled haute couture for Jean Paul Gaultier.

Dita Von Teese Second Look Dress and Follow me dress

With her wide range of talents and her natural flair for fashion, it should come as little surprise that she should make the step into ready-to-wear designing. She has recently released five of her own signature pieces – the VIP Coat, the Bon Bon Dress, the Follow Me Dress, the Second Look Dress and the Showcase Dress. Without a doubt, the range reflects the burlesque dancer’s own retro-glam look. Each piece is an homage to her own sleek and stylish 50s-esque silhouettes. The designs also show Von Teese’s personal penchant for vintage couture coming through, with grosgrain ribbon, nipped in waists and full skirts. The pieces are figure hugging, which certainly works in favour of the designer as they show off her beautiful curves and perfect figure.

Running alongside this impressive mini-collection, Von Teese has also recently launched her lingerie range, Von Follies by Dita Von Teese, now widely available through various online retailers.

The idea to release her own collection apparently came from a simple trip to her favourite vintage store: “I saw a very famous designer, who shall remain unnamed, he was there with his whole team and they were taking pictures for pieces to inspire his next collection. I just thought to myself: ‘There’s no reason why I couldn’t do that.’ Vintage stores are where I buy all my clothes – I love the thrill of the hunt.”

It should be stressed that Dita’s foray into fashion design is hardly likely to be a flash in the pan by yet another celeb-turned-designer – Von Teese studied historic costume at college with the ambition of becoming a film stylist, and she worked as a lingerie buyer before bringing her burlesque skills to the world. Obviously she has put her studies to good use –  her elegant designs are simple but timelessly stylish. Dita does not disappoint.
