The Best of Paris Couture Week: Chanel Spring/Summer Haute Couture 2019

January 28, 2019

With the onset of Paris Fashion Week’s most iconic features just around the corner, Haute Couture is not to be overlooked. For many fashion enthusiasts, these gorgeous, one-of-a-kind collections are a highlight of the entire runway season. Yet here is our favourite show, Chanel Spring/Summer Haute Couture 2019.

This year, luxury giants such as Chanel, Armani, Givenchy, and Gaultier — just to name a few —showcased a plethora of stunning pieces, but being that we’re enamored with the elegance of Chanel, we decided to pull some of their most alluring garments right from the runway.

The entire vibe of Chanel’s Haute Couture 2019 show was pure opulence, not to mention consistent, and that’s hard to do when unveiling 62 outfits.

From the classic suits, endless variations of pastel pinks, the intricately stitched and delicately frills, to the chateau garden backdrop, there’s almost a romantic, dreamy quality that prevails in each and every look.

Our Favourite Looks

Look 4

This preppy, pink suit with its adjoining pencil skirt is perfect for a business outing such as a luncheon or morning meeting. I love the big buttons. The neckline’s construction is very chic. The suit would be darling paired with a small clutch and nude/eggshell stiletto heels.

“Casual royalty” is the way a close friend described this avant-garde set and we have to adamantly agree with her observation. The gold trimming is what really elevates this outfit. If Marie Antoinette lived in the 21st century, we’re fairly confident that she would wear something like this for a day off duty in the courtyard.

This marvellous piece is a clear departure from the first two looks, least in color scheme, but it commands attention in the best way. Off the shoulder construction is still going strong in the industry. The ruffles add drama while the gold detailing keeps the silhouette from being lost.

This ‘little black dress’ breaks the stereotype of simplicity. While the lacy, low-cut fabric could be too daring for a modest palate, I think the sparkling texture and subtle ruching is glamorous. This dress, paired with a leather jacket, would be at the top of my list for an intimate dinner date with my spouse.

When we at AlleyGirl first saw this dress, we literally gasped. This final look is like icing on a birthday cake, completely necessary and decadent. This dress embodies Chanel as a whole. It’s feminine, it’s fun, it’s completely the type of dress one would expect a Disney princess to wear.
