Another season of Paris Couture Fashion Week has come to an end, where we witnessed Jean-Paul Gaultier's swansong collection, reveled in Maison Margiela's upcycling Artisanal Collection and celebrated G-Dragon's stellar return to Paris.

 

So, we are chronicling our favourite moments of Paris Spring/Summer 2020 Couture Fashion Week for your pleasure:

Iris Van Herpen presents Sensory Seas, translating waves and tides, and the life it nurtures into couture tour de force.

 

 

Things went bizarrely beautiful at Schiaparelli as Daniel Roseberry sent models down the runway with otherworldly body jewellery against a line-up of laid-back silhouettes.

 

 

G-Dragon, the house ambassador of Chanel, made a stellar return to Paris Couture Week after two-year military service. Fashion has missed his one-of-a-kind persona!

 

 

The couturier Jean-Paul Gaultier took a bow at his swansong runway as he retires from fashion week. The emotional evening has seen the attendance of Dries Van Noten, Nicolas Ghesquière and more. 

 

Floral is truly groundbreaking again at Givenchy Couture SS2020 as Clare Waight Keller brought the romance between Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf to life with floral prints, petals ruffles and bud embroideries.

 

 

And the best walk once again goes to Leon Dame, the German model who lives Margiela.

Maison Margiela presented an upcycling collection for its Couture Spring 2020. Models were wearing pieces made from ready elements, reinvented by the Maison's signature deconstructive tailorings to identify the bourgeois codes. 'We will recycle in order to upcycle our rebellion," - said the designer in the latest The Memory Of…With John Galliano podcast.

 

 

Last but not least, the return of Balenciaga Haute Couture collection that is soon to happen in July. Over the week, Balenciaga announced the project on Instagram, "52 years after its founder closed the house, Balenciaga will reintroduce its Haute Couture Collections."

Thanks Demna and team!
