Haute Couture Report AW 18

From sky-high hair to tributes to the late Hubert de Givenchy. We round up the best of Haute Couture AW 18 in Paris.

Understated elegance.

CHANEL
Channeling the steely grey Parisian landscape, Lagerfeld’s collection featured the maison’s signature tweed, chiffon and embellishment in shades of charcoal, silver and ash.

CHRISTIAN DIOR
Minimal, unfussy and crafted with purpose. Maria Grazia Chiuri’s couture woman was a future classic.

A new wave.

FENDI
The expansion of Fendi couture. From coloured coats, skirt suits and a fresh take on faux fur, it was a 60s mod affair for AW 18.

GIAMBATTISTA VALLI
Don’t wait up. Subtle skin, voluminous gowns and playful pops of colour – Giambattista Valli’s AW 18 vision was one of youth and attitude.

Remembering a master.

GIVENCHY
A tribute to the late Hubert de Givenchy by Clare Waight Keller. Capes, free-flowing gowns and exquisite tailoring. Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

VALENTINO
Extravagant proportions and volume paired with bright colour and craftsmanship. A dreamy wonderland of couture, with supermodel offspring Kaia Gerber stealing the show.
