but apparently this morning BryanBoy had warmed to it. Anyway, I think some of it was pretty damn amazing:@bryanboy doesnt understand the new Valentino couture collection. Some of the looks are like a sloppy Balenciaga
I heart the Pocahontas-inspired transparent headdresses! I'll need to make me some...
Armani Privé produced a range of chic, elegant blah blah damn amazing suits and dresses. The references to the moon were obvious and a little bit too overpowering, but almost every one of these outfits can stand out on its own. I especially like the sheeny shiny suit and dress below:
Anne Valerie Hash made couture out of hand-me-downs from friends. That isn't as bad as it sounds. For example, the hood that goes with the jumpsuit below was donated by Diane Pernet, and the t-shirt and spangly jacket on the man were once Pete Doherty's favourite jacket. Who wouldn't want to wear a piece of Diane?
Alexis Mabille was probably my least favourite collection, but these two simple dichromic looks below stood out for me...
Maison Martin Margiela presented their famous Artisinal couture collection, but without Mr Margiela at the helm, it's difficult not to view the clothes as poor pastiches of his old work.

Couture has really put me in the mood for the ready-to-wear shows...bring it on!
