    An Interview with Celia Kritharioti, Celia Kritharioti Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week Having only made her Paris debut last year, Celia Kritharioti remains a relative newcomer on the scene, though her roots in couture fashion are some of the oldest (and deepest) in the industry. Having opened their fashion house in 1906, the family of couturiers predates the likes of Chanel, and-if the highly lauded, highly sought-after collections Kritharioti has debuted over the last few seasons are any indication-is unlikely to close its doors at any time in the foreseeable future. Her intricately beaded, meticulously crafted gowns have secured Kritharioti’s position as a global couturier to watch. Hauturely had the opportunity to speak with Kritharioti after the premier of her new collection for the Fall/Winter 2018 season of Paris Fashion Week. written by Lunda Fallon Hauturely: Can you please let our readers know a little bit about yourself? Celia Kritharioti: My name is Celia Kritharioti, owner and designer of the Celia Kritharioti House of Couture. I was born and raised in Greece, where my family has been involved in the fashion industry since 1906; so I grew up in Haute Couture. This is a family business. Hauturely: How would you best describe your brand? Kritharioti: I like for a woman to look feminine, while also looking sexy and elegant. We dress to be noticed by other people, and my designs are made for a woman to look and feel beautiful. That’s the reason that I make couture: thanks to couture, with a great fitting, we can extenuate and highlight the beautiful shape of a woman. Hauturely: Your work certainly speaks to that; the gowns were stunning, the white wedding dress, in particular! Kritharioti: Thank you. Hauturely: What is your favorite piece of the collection? Kritharioti: I can’t choose! Actually, all of the pieces are inspired by my mother, she loves everything about velvet, pearls and gold. She was in love with Paris, which is what inspired me while working on this collection. So, every piece is important to me. Hauturely: That’s beautiful! Describe the typical clientele of the Celia Kritharioti House of Couture. Kritharioti: We have all types of clientele, both young and old. Our pieces are for all occasions. Hauturely: Now, can we talk about Mrs. Vodianova? How did she come to open this show? Kritharioti: Actually, she was in Greece right before she gave birth to her first child, and I had just had my first son, as well. We met up at a show, and I just loved the way she carried herself. She is very beautiful, both inside and outside. Hauturely: What is your greatest wish for yourself and the Celia Kritharioti House of Couture? Kritharioti: Health! Because with good health you can accomplish anything! Hauturely: Then we wish you the best of health and happiness.

    Parisian’s Pay Tribute to Azzedine Alaia in New Exhibit
    Less than a year after the death of legendary fashion designer Azzedine Alaia, a new exhibition opened at the Azzedine Alaia Gallery in the Marais district in Paris. “The Secret Anatomy of a Collection,” showing at the designer’s old atelier and home, focuses on his Spring 1992 collect…[Read more]

    Parisian’s Pay Tribute to Azzedine Alaia in New Exhibit Less than a year after the death of legendary fashion designer Azzedine Alaia, a new exhibition opened at the Azzedine Alaia Gallery in the Marais district in Paris. “The Secret Anatomy of a Collection,” showing at the designer’s old atelier and home, focuses on his Spring 1992 collection, which was Alaia’s largest, most important work. Inspired by Jeanne Antoinette Poisson, better known as the Marquise de Pompadour, the collection featured 115 looks, all hand-crafted by the designer himself. Alaia’s fascination with The Pompadour began during the renovation of the newly purchased hôtel des évêques de Bauvaishe, when it was discovered his soon-to-be new atelier was once her home. The collection, at once presented on the runway by the likes of Naomi Campbell, Helena Christensen, and Cindy Crawford, was now displayed on transparent busts, though to equal effect: a white eyelet cotton corseted mini dress with a billowing ruffled skirt, a form-fitting red midi dress with a corset bodice and an asymmetrical mermaid hem, and a brown hued peplum blazer with a matching pleated mini skirt. Though heavily influenced by 18th century nobility, the garments are impossible to date; timelessness, a unique and difficult to attain quality of Alaia’s work, is an artistic feat that is reserved for those few who have truly gained mastery over their craft, and Alaia is no exception. The designer was well loved in the fashion community, as evident in the high-caliber guest list present at the opening; Naomi Campbell, Carla Sozzani, and Mandy Moore could be seen sipping champagne or fresh juice, while paying homage to the prolific designer. Though it’s been over 25 years since the design of the garments on display in “The Secret Anatomy of a Collection,” they remain current and reflective of today’s trends, with plenty of tiered ruffles, corsets, and asymmetrical hemming. Azzedine Alaia will be remembered as a legend in the art of fashion design, his body of work giving no indication that it plans to become irrelevant anytime soon. written by Youness Boumia #article #azzedinealaia #azzedinealaiaarticle #azzedinealaiafw18 #younessboumia #2ebureau #2ebureauarticle #fw18 #hcfwarticle #hcfw18Alaia1Alaia2Alaia3Alaia4Alaia5

    Eva Minge Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week In the prestigious Parisian Westin Hotel, the recent absence of Polish designer Eva Minge from the couture world was most profoundly felt when it ended-with the presentation of her newest captivating collection. Having achieved near-celebrity status in her native country for her both her design work, and her staunch advocacy for the disabled, Minge continues to extend her reach globally with a fine new collection of gowns and day wear. In a literal interpretation of the ballet “Swan Lake,” dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet sat poised on the wooden panels of the runway floor, arms outstretched in fifth position, while a small corps from the prestigious company preformed en pointe before Minge’s premiere look was revealed. Lending a romantic ambiance to the event, luxurious textiles such as tulle, silk, lace, and tweed were hand embroidered with floral appliques, feathers, and large gemstones to figure-hugging silhouettes with bodices that ranged in style from mesh corsets to variations on a sweetheart neckline. Billowing tulle skirts of various length and design added graceful movement to each gown: a red, two-tiered mermaid skirt layered densely with small, angular cuts of tulle; or a blue, pleated tulle gown with long, meticulously draped panels. Minge manipulated the tulle for each skirt differently depending on the desired effect, showing the range of the textile in an effective and unique way. More sleek evening gowns dazzled in floor-length, rich silks, like the black narrow-fitting sequined gown with revealing angular cutouts that caught the light in very intriguing ways. Minge balanced her collection of avian-like gowns with several day wear looks in oversized, embellished tweed: an electric blue ensemble with matching fringe along the hemlines and open shoulders, or a pink zip up midi dress with large gemstone embellishments and fringe details. The addition of day wear added a much-appreciated edge and elevated the design aesthetic, overall; this is requisite when, in a sea of couturiers who have mastered the complex construction of the evening gown, it may otherwise be easy to simply blend. Day wear was styled to include tweed nautical caps, lace-up stilettos, oversized sunglasses, and large statement jewelry. written by Youness Boumia Click HERE to view the full Eva Minge Couture Fall Winter 2018 collection. #article #evaminge #evamingearticle #evamingefw18 #younessboumia #fw18 #hcfwarticle #hcfw18Minge1Minge2Minge3Minge4Minge5

    Eva Minge Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week In the prestigious Parisian Westin Hotel, the recent absence of Polish designer Eva Minge from the couture world was most profoundly felt when it ended-with the presentation of her newest captivating collection. Having achieved near-celebrity status in her native country for her both her design work, and her staunch advocacy for the disabled, Minge continues to extend her reach globally with a fine new collection of gowns and day wear. In a literal interpretation of the ballet “Swan Lake,” dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet sat poised on the wooden panels of the runway floor, arms outstretched in fifth position, while a small corps from the prestigious company preformed en pointe before Minge’s premiere look was revealed. Lending a romantic ambiance to the event, luxurious textiles such as tulle, silk, lace, and tweed were hand embroidered with floral appliques, feathers, and large gemstones to figure-hugging silhouettes with bodices that ranged in style from mesh corsets to variations on a sweetheart neckline. Billowing tulle skirts of various length and design added graceful movement to each gown: a red, two-tiered mermaid skirt layered densely with small, angular cuts of tulle; or a blue, pleated tulle gown with long, meticulously draped panels. Minge manipulated the tulle for each skirt differently depending on the desired effect, showing the range of the textile in an effective and unique way.

    Georges Hobeika Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week Just a few steps from the Eiffel Tower at the Theatre National de la Danse, one may have felt as though they had just mistakenly been seated at a fringe performance of acclaimed ballet Swan Lake. Rightfully so, as Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika’s new couture collection not only drew inspiration from the dark, yet dynamic, classic of dance, but also celebrated it with a collection whose depth and complexity matched that of Swan Lake in many subtle regards. Hobeika’s mastery over his craft was evident in each look, from his use of luxurious fabrics like silk chiffon, tulle, and taffeta, to the intricate beadwork, embroidery, and featherwork that illuminated and heightened these already elevated textiles. Working with a slim color palette of creams, whites, pinks, and blues, each look in the collection was painstakingly embroidered with crystals that glimmered and sparkled down the runway; in a number of looks, these shimmering crystal beads were shaped to resemble a pair of swans, seemingly caught in a gentle embrace. The influence of Swan Lake appeared in this conspicuous way in several forms, whether it be through the paired swan motif, his lush use of tiered feathers, or in the jeweled stilettos designed to resemble the pointe shoe. Slimly tailored silhouettes were brought to life by cascading fabrics that oftentimes used pleating to an intricate degree: the fluidity of large organ pleats nipped at the waist of a pink ballgown, it’s plunging neckline obscured under a crystal-studded sheer overlay; the instability of accordion pleats in the iridescent grey midi skirt/jacket ensemble. Hobeika executed a variety of stylistic elements into his work, including beaded fringe, various shoulder capes, cutouts, and asymmetrical hemlines; these elements were fused throughout the collection due on the illusion that they created. This illusory quality was best encapsulated by a crystal-encrusted navy gown, with the lines of the gown’s sleeves and neckline created by floating jewels sewn onto transparent mesh. The exquisite selection of gowns was complimented by a fun selection of fringe minidresses, abstract peplums, and jumpsuits, which added dimension to the collection and showed Hobeika’s range as a designer: a playful blue jumpsuit with patterned beading in a graphic burst of colors brought a fun, youthful feel to the presentation. This exquisite collection demands more than one, two, or even three viewings; whether your eyes are drawn immediately to the serged edging, intricate beading, illusion gemstones, or voluminous feathers, there is surely something you will have missed on first viewing. View a second, if for nothing else, for the backs of many of these gowns, which somehow demanded as much attention as the front. written by Youness Boumia Click HERE to view the full Georges Hobeika Couture Fall Winter 2018 collection. #article #georgeshobeika #georgeshobeikaarticle #georgeshobeikafw18 #younessboumia #fw18 #hcfwarticle #hcfw18 #stationservice #stationservicearticleHobeki1Hobeki2Hobeki3Hobeki4Hobeki5

    Patuna Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week The setting is an elaborate space in the Maison des Champs-Elysees; with gold-leaf gilded pillars soaring to the 100 ft. vaulted ceilings, it lends itself to the narrative created by American-Georgian designer Patuna. In her latest Couture collection, “Carré d’As,” Petuna tells the story of the elegant, confident woman who is unafraid to be powerful in a man’s world; her power is derived from embracing her own sensuality and femininity, rather than from defense of it. Structure is a key element within the collection. Patuna demonstrates her ability to create architectural, three-dimensional shapes with sophisticated, figure-hugging silhouettes are often painstakingly draped, nipped, and pleated to high visual impact. A range of textures and colors intermingle throughout each look, where strategically placed transparent panels intrigued the eye with a peek of nipple, a décolletage adorned with opulent crystals, and a delicate drape of chiffon. This provocative use of sheer was grounded by bold, silky draping, elaborate statement sleeves, or a billowing cape for a collection that was both sensual and sophisticated. Elegance and power are two very important aspects in Patuna’s work. She expresses value in the power of femininity by revealing that value visually, without having to peer through the lens of masculinity to view it. By demonstrating the radical power of womanhood without the inherently diminutive need to defend it, a new expression of this power emerges. Patuna exemplifies this in every minute detail, from the bold metallic face paint to the height of the heels that elevated each look to overwhelming proportions. written by Youness Boumia Click HERE to view the full Patuna Couture Fall Winter 2018 collection. #article #patuna #patunaarticle #patunafw18 #younessboumia #fw18 #hcfwarticle #mephistopheles #mephistophelesarticle #hcfw #hcfw18patuna1patuna2patuna3patuna4patuna5

    Georges Chakra Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week If Christóbal Balenciaga harbored a deep connection to the color black, it was most evident in his scores of architecturally designed, blackest-of-black dresses. Lebanese fashion designer, Georges Chakra, too shares his connection to the color in his newly presented collection: if black is not represented mono-chromatically, it is somehow integrated into every look from his opulent new collection. Held in the famous “Palais de Tokyo” in Paris, guests of the show mingled while enjoying the beautiful space: there were fans of Chakra from Lebanon, the press (such as journalist Malika Menard) Public Relations people, celebrities (such as a past Miss France), and French artist Amanda Lear. Sophisticated silhouettes drew inspiration from both what is old and what is modern, mostly through his use of texture, shape, and volume; with waistlines highly emphasized, Chakra demonstrated mastery over these elements with (the almost always present) tulle, chiffon, satin, and organza, incorporating quintessentially feminine design elements such as both low plunging and high structured necklines, sheer overlays, and expertly placed cut-outs, to name a few. Though present throughout the entirety of the collection-as a sheer lace veil, at the very least-Chakra’s palate also includes deep reds, metallic golds and silvers, pinks, and blues, sometimes seamlessly blending these opposing color combinations in a way that is never jarring. Though the collection always felt cohesive, each look was dramatically different from the next; Chakra is not afraid to play with boundaries, appearing to focus less on a singular theme and more on finding out how far his vision could take him. A metallic silver one-piece constructed of voluminous tulle ruffles and laser-cut fringe stood out among many, as did a fire-red beaded gown with a caped skirt and an extravagantly tailored white bodice. The final look presented was the bridal gown, the centerpiece of the collection. The gown borrowed aesthetic inspiration from territories in the far East; indeed, the extravagantly full silk organza skirt of the classic ballgown-style silhouette, featured delicate floral embellishments that were reminiscent of traditional Japanese art, like cherry tree branches that have just begun to bloom. written by Youness Boumia Click HERE to view the full George Chakra Couture Fall Winter 2018 collection. #article #georgeschakra #georgeschakraarticle #georgeschakrafw18 #younessboumia #fw18 #hcfwarticle #minouchefenech #minouchefenecharticle #hcfw18GChakra1GChakra2GChakra3GChakra4

    Georges Chakra Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week If Christóbal Balenciaga harbored a deep connection to the color black, it was most evident in his scores of architecturally designed, blackest-of-black dresses. Lebanese fashion designer, Georges Chakra, too shares his connection to the color in his newly presented collection: if black is not represented mono-chromatically, it is somehow integrated into every look from his opulent new collection. Held in the famous “Palais de Tokyo” in Paris, guests of the show mingled while enjoying the beautiful space: there were fans of Chakra from Lebanon, the press (such as journalist Malika Menard) Public Relations people, celebrities (such as a past Miss France), and French artist Amanda Lear.

    Ziad Nakad Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week Lebanese designer Ziad Nakad’s new Couture collection-presented in the historical “Place Vendôme”, where many well renowned couturiers’ have at once kept their salons-immersed spectators in his bold vision of the woman who is both timelessly elegant, and fearlessly dramatic. With each look, Nakad has cultivated an element of enchantment, where fantasy and whimsy are not relegated to the pages of a fairytale; the craftsmanship on display through the extensive beadwork and attention to detail, the mastery over different textiles and materials such as tulle, velvet, mesh, and ostrich feathers, contribute to the feeling of being transported somewhere entirely new, and yet alarmingly familiar. Highlights of Nakad’s (technically and aesthetically) astonishing collection include a long, deeply red velvet dress with a meticulously crafted neckline and feather detailing at the wrists, an intricately beaded blue silk organza gown with a plunging neckline and eccentric, voluminously feathered shoulders, or, the fascinating silver and gold beaded gown with floor-length, open sleeves. By experimenting with the optics of these textiles, seamlessly blending opaque and transparent, Nakad challenged the idea of “sexy”; the mostly sheer gowns reveal a daring amount of skin, yet are never anything less than demure. Bare skin is used in the designs like a metaphor, a poetic background that contributes to the beauty of the gowns. The final look would have appeared at home in some desolate, icy forest; with a rather eccentric ballgown bridal silhouette, the multi-layered and intricately beaded skirt and floor-length veil could easily be envisioned in the pages of an old, enchanted collection of fairy tales, the likes of Hans Christian Anderson. Ziad Nakad is a storyteller in his own right, though with each spellbinding look, he is allowing us to choose our own adventure. written by Youness Boumia Click HERE to view the full Ziad Nakad Couture Fall Winter 2018 collection. #article #ziadnakadarticle #ziadnakad #ziadnakadfw18 #younessboumia #fw18 #hcfw18 #hcfwarticle #mephistopheles #mephistophelesarticleNakad1Nakad2Nakad3Nakad4Nakad5

    Rani Zakhem Fall Winter 2018 at Haute Couture Fashion Week On the last day of Paris Haute Couture Fashion week, designer Rani Zakhem presented an astonishing collection of vibrant, powerful, and vivacious designs for a fiery woman not afraid to be the center of attention. Each piece from Zakhem’s opulent collection, dedicated to the sophisticated, yet eccentric woman, celebrates a different aspect of powerful femininity: the classy, the chic, the sexy, and the strange, just to name a few. Ethereal and bursting with color, luxurious fabrics were crafted into sleek silhouettes and intricate draping, with design elements like plunging necklines, tiered ruffling, sexy cut-outs, and a satin hood. Zakhem really shined with his use of metallic beading, seen in several of the gowns; in fact, his use of metallic details, such as sequins and beading throughout much of the collection stood out amongst a beautiful line of couture dresses. These beautifully accented gowns and separates reflected on the inherent power of womanhood, a power that the designer has made difficult to ignore. A performance of this caliber was most certainly a good way to close out Paris Fashion Week. written by Youness Boumia Click HERE to view the full Rani Zakhem Couture Fall Winter 2018 collection. #article #ranizakhem #ranizakhemsarticle #ranizakhem18 #fw18 #younessboumia #mephistopheles #mephistophelesarticle #hcfw18 #hcfwarticleZakhem1Zakhem2Zakhem3
