Couture fashion week is back with a bang. On Sunday night (4 July) Virgil Abloh kicked off couture autumn/winter 2021 proceedings with his star-studded Off-White runway featuring cameos from Bella Hadid, Amber Valletta, Honey Dijon, and a performance by M.I.A. The cast took their respective street style turns outside the venue, with Bella Hadid changing from her electric blue velvety Off-White look into a simple grey mini and knee-highs.
The same evening, Pieter Mulier debuted his very first show at the helm of Alaïa. The Belgian-born designer offered a fresh new look; reintroducing the “democratisation” that the house had in the ’80s by presenting on the street – all eyes watching.
Schiaparelli was shown bright and early on Monday, followed by Dior and Giambattista Valli. Outside the shows, guests were dressed to the nines – as is customary for couture.
Tuesday saw Margaret Qualley step into the fabled role of Chanel’s couture bride, and Demna Gvasalia resurrected couture at Balenciaga to much acclaim on Wednesday. Also in the pipeline: Kerby Jean Raymond’s inaugural Haute Couture Pyer Moss showcase, and Kim Jones’s Fendi Haute Couture follow-up.
