The Finale – Haute Couture Style

 The final collections have been shown…the season hobbled to a close on a more promising note but certainly not equal to its opening performance.

                           Jean Paul Gaultier showed, what I consider to be a less than fabulous collection, but still managed to be true to his DNA.

                               The collection was short on his usual sense of humor and his normal theatrics, yet there were beautiful wearable clothes for the ladies, both young and old, to own, wear and adore.

Actually there were even a few one might lust for which, this season, seems to be a less likely occurrence than in past seasons.

                           Elie Saab, while a relative newcomer to the haute couture, has certainly shown his ability to rival the best of them.

                          Mr. Saab was true to the brand DNA and thusly showed an extravagant collection for red carpet events as well as any formal event and even some wonderful short affairs with all the bells and whistles that have made him famous.

This was one of the strongest collections of the season and I am sure that the faithful as well as the angst ridden newcomers will be lined up for these show stopping confections.  

One can only hope the coming ready to wear collections will not follow the less than stellar showings of the couture.

Thanks one more time to the lovely Jeffrey B Felner for his insightful comments on the Paris Fall Haute Couture Show for 2010.
