Unlike regular fashion weeks, Couture Week is a twice-a-year occasion which only takes place in Paris. Here's how we remembered Spring-Summer 2017 season.  

1. The Oscar-Worthy Front Row at Armani Privé

It’s that season of the hottest red carpets and haute couture is in order! Just a few hours after the announcement of the 2017 Academy Awards nominations, Isabelle Huppert and Nicole Kidman, two of this year's nominees showed up at the Armani Privé show. The media already dubbed the show a '21st century Scheherezade collection': the designer added an optimistic tone with lots of curry-colored embellished silk dresses, embroidery and sequins.

2. Chanel's New Bride

Following the brand's tradition of recent years, a star child was a must-have of the show. This time Lily-Rose Depp, the 17-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis had the honor of being the bride-the last model to walk the runway with Karl Lagerfeld in Chanel's most extravagant look.

3. Vetements-Couture Disrupters

No, it is very hard to see homeless chic as 'low-key glamour' suitable for the week of showcasing pure skills and excellence of couture. But what would couture week be without the true eccentrics, the radicals of a new era, who shake the fashion world with every appearance?

4.Two Big Debuts

Following her statement-infused ready-to-wear debut in September, Dior designer Maria Grazia Chiuri elaborated on her vision with a dreamy collection of whimsical gowns shown in an indoor labyrinth of leaves and moss. Pierpaolo Piccioli showed veils and pleated dresses in his Valentino couture debut collection-less flamboyant but totally modern.

5.State-of-the-Couture Tech

Notice how a lot of tech innovation originates in Holland? One thing for sure, there are not many designers who have extended the wearable tech concept as much as Iris Van Herpen. Once again, Dutch designer shined with garments designed on the computer and looking like walking optical illusions.

和其他的时尚周不一样,时装周是一年两次仅限巴黎的盛会。下面是我们记忆中的2017年春夏季内容。

1. Armani Privé 的奥斯卡阵容

这是本赛季最炙手可热的红毯和高级时装已经就绪!就在2017的学院奖提名公布短短几个小时之后,Isabelle Huppert和 Nicole Kidman,两个今年的提名者就出现在 Armani Privé 的秀场。媒体已经将本次展会称为“第二十一世纪Scheherezade 系列”:设计师添加了很多明亮的元素,比如咖喱色点缀的丝绸,刺绣和亮片。

2. 新任香奈儿新娘

追随近几年品牌的传统,一个明星家庭的孩子是必备节目。这一次 Lily Rose Depp,Johnny Depp和Vanessa Paradis的17岁女儿有幸成为了这一次的新娘:她穿着香奈儿最奢华的服装和 Karl Lagerfeld 一起最后出场。

3. Vetements - 时装干扰者

不,很难看到无家可归的别致比如“低调”适合纯技巧和卓越的高级定制时装周。但是什么时装周会没有真正古怪的人呢,一个新时代的激进分子,谁每次出现都能动摇时尚世界?

4. 两大处女秀

在她的声明中说准备在九月进行处女秀,迪奥设计师 Maria Grazia Chiuri 阐述了一个梦幻般的系列,异想天开的礼服在树叶和苔藓室内迷宫展开,显示她的独到见解。Pierpaolo Piccioli 展示了了他在Valentino时装周亮相的系列,不浮夸而又完全现代化的风格。

5. 时装之国的技术

你是否注意到许多技术创新起源于荷兰?有一点是肯定的,不会有很多的设计师像 Iris Van Herpen 去扩展可穿戴技术的概念。荷兰设计师又一次依靠电脑设计的如同幻觉般的服饰大放异彩。
