Paris is living poetry, a city like no other. Brimming with magical beauty and places that look like film sets. It is Couture Week in the French capital and its streets open up their embrace for the most incredible fashion connoisseuses. Their style always seems to be taken out of a manual written in their own handwriting and dedicated to freedom, manners and some attitude when choosing an outfit. They love crossing boundaries, setting out new rules and wearing whatever they feel like. As long as it makes them happy.
They declare their own trends and cause quite a stir with every single shared shot on Instagram. Such are the snow queens of Paris. Arriving in their delicate heels in order to dance right in its heart and gather the attention of the whole world, which is staring hypnotised at them. And how could it possibly be otherwise?
There is not a single detail that hasn’t been thought of to absolute perfection – from the nuance of their lip colour to that of their fine accessories. But after all, let’s look more attentively into what the leading pieces in their wardrobes are when choosing an outfit for an event of the rank of Couture Week.
Black is trailing behind while warm colours comfortably make their way to the top of the charts of street style queens. From their coats to their perfectly sculpted skirts, caramel shades, interpretations of beige and hot chocolate are in the preferred palette.
Shoes and bags are their favourite ways to play with their imagination. And there hop out animalistic patterns, unusual designs and bolder fashion gems.
Sub-zero temperatures can’t fool them but,quite the contrary, only remind them how vicious sunlight reflected in the snow could be. This is why sunglasses remain a valuable accessory and the strongest armour for the eyes of our street style Amazons. The frame shapes are expectedly extraordinary, rare and often made entirely by hand.
We let you dive in the atmosphere of Paris… Paris in the time of Couture.
