Guo Pei Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016

WHAT: Guo Pei Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2016. Guo Pei, the Chinese fashion designer known for her very elaborate and intricate designs showed at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week for the very first time...

We all know Pei also from the gold colored sequined and fur Empress Coat Rihanna wore to the Met Ball last year--as well as the China: Through the Looking Glass Exhibition where several of her unbelievable couture designs were featured. Guo Pei was invited to show at this week's Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week (wonder how much that cost?), and her collection highlighted her atelier's incredible workmanship. There were many references to her native land but it was less Guo Pei Grand and more "wearable"...or as wearable as Guo Pei's designs can be. Lots of cocktail dresses and even some pants ensembles and surprisingly, not so many grand museum-worthy gowns. Some of the designs verged on a bit too late 80's/early 90's but overall, this was a nice showing for Pei. It will be interesting if those actual Haute Couture customers (many of them China's new billionaires) will order.

TRENDS: Strapless cocktail dresses; yoke details; flap front details; flared ball skirts.

COLORS: Golden canary yellow, pale blue, dusty rose
