The power of print! One thing we noticed from the Couture Fall21 catwalks was how print seemed more dominant and not just the concept of luxury fabrications or couture techniques. It's almost as if the idea of ready to wear and couture has merged. We're already seeing denim being used in couture collections which also blurs what we imagine when we think of traditional couture.
We're loving the dark and mysterious florals as seen at Dior Couture Fall21 and the idea of print blocking done so subtly. Dior really led on print as did Armani Prive Couture Fall21, in expressive large blooms and in the trend we've been seeing of expressive strokes, blurred and stained like watercolours.
Valentino Couture Fall21 really showcased an incredible couture collection with its vibrant palette and dramatic prints, created as an art collaboration with various artists. The whole collection is pure beauty.
We were so inspired by the colours which made us think of the artwork 1024 Colours by Gerhard Richter which can be seen in at the Centre Pompidou, Paris. With a myriad of colours, they are compatible when individually combined expressing a great example of harmony.
