Paris Haute Couture Week, Spring 2014: Nature’s Beauties

Beautiful Butterflies

A recurring theme at the Spring 2014 Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week was the butterfly trend.  Beautifully symmetrical, covered in vibrant colors and delicate and decorative, we can see why Valentino and Jean Paul Gaultier based their latest designs on these interesting insects. Valentino’s Spring 2014 couture collection comprised truly beautiful butterfly embellished jackets and feminine, floaty butterfly adorned evening gowns. Jean Paul Gaultier also opted for elaborate butterfly headpieces and butterfly silhouettes. This really is luxurious designer, high-end fashion that’s exquisite and on-trend for the warmer seasons ahead.

Fabulous Florals

Elie Saab and Yulia Yanina took inspiration for their Spring 2014 Haute Couture Collections from the timeless trend, fabulous florals. Flowers were integrated into lace and painted onto Elie Saab’s stunning gowns. We predict a few of his desirable dresses will be making an appearance on the red carpet at this year’s 2014 Oscars! If you are looking for a slightly more subtle approach to wearing flowers, try Miriam Haskell‘s classic intricate pearl earrings, Ciner’s pearl flower earrings or other pearl jewelry pieces – we think they would work wonderfully with Elie Saab’s collection too.

Yulia Yanina’s floral fashions were slightly less subtle. Bold prints and blooming flower headpieces couldn’t be missed on their catwalk show at Paris Haute Couture Week. We say wear this Spring / Summer ’14 runway trend with either a floral inspired headband, a Jennifer Behr Large Crystal Brooch Headwrap or team simple studs with your bold, statement floral printed dresses to perfectly complement this stand-out theme.
