Round up: Haute Couture Week

Prestige flew over to Paris to bring you to the parties and the shows of the most elaborate week on the fashion calendar.

We started the week off with a brilliant display of jewels at Chaumet. It makes a difference to look at the glittering gems in Paris, the city the brand calls home and from which it draws its inspiration. Looking at each sparkling diamond, our minds were cast back to the romance and decadence of Napoleon and Josephine’s romance. The carnivalesque atmosphere of the Alice in Wonderland themed event kept us going long after the sun went down. Other jewellery brands that elicited gasps of wonder were Nirav Modi and Van Cleef and Arpels.

Our fashion lineup consisted of Prestige favourites including Chanel, the brand that knows good spectacle. Dior, Elie Saab, Valentino never disappoint and well, just see the incredible craftsmanship for yourselves in the gallery above. Fendi was a whir of fabulous furs and flora was the main theme at the brand’s Haute Fourrure show. Trust the one and only Karl Lagerfeld to dream up such colourful creations and give it extra pizzaz against an enchanting woodland backdrop.
