Best Street Style Looks of Paris Couture Spring 2018

I remember the time when haute couture fashion week was my least favorite in terms of street style scene because everyone felt the need to dress accordingly and some of them looked like they ran out of their *very* fancy prom. Then, after a couple of years, they luckily realized that they don’t actually have to dress “couturesque” to attend the shows and finally we started getting some real inspiration. Now, together with Scandinavian fashion weeks, it’s a lovely stop right before fashion month. Here are some of my favorites!

Couture Brides, Rejoice

For the not-so-standard bride-to-be, haute couture fashion weeks are the ultimate inspiration play grounds, much more than bridal fashion weeks. While bridal brands offer utterly romantic and ethereal wedding dresses, it’s the couture pieces that we turn our heads to and dream about. This year Alexis Mabille particularly played for future brides but personally it was Georges Hobeika’s scalloped necklines, Valentino’s iconic long sleeved gowns, Gucci and Zuhair Murad’s bold jumpsuits with an intense 70’s vibe, Yiqing Yin’s this-wouldn’t-make-peta-happy work of art fur and macrame gown and most importantly Chanel’s casual aura that made this spring 2014 couture week a bridal heaven. They are all so, so good.
