SQUA.RE Guide: Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011 Collections

Hats and volume, usually the two are essential haute couture ingredients, I feel, they played a different and fantastic role in this Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011 season. From Armani Privé‘s extremely modern luxury, almost taking a cosmic appeal, to Jean-Paul Gaultier’s mixture of the grandest of couture with British punk, indicating his anarchic role as the indefinite enfant terrible. Other extravagant highlights are John Galliano’s attempt at bloody bold red colours for the house of Christian Dior, a collection inspired by René Gruau, the illustrator whose work for Christian Dior in the forties and fifties created the house’s most iconic imagery, and Riccardo Tisci collection of wings for Givenchy, inspired by Kazuo Ohno, the Japanese dance performer whose intensely ritualized style of performance, called Butoh, becoming and imminent muse to Tisci’s work.
