Fall 2012 Couture Highlights

My favorite kind of couture features giant, impossible sillouettes and clothes you could only wear to visit someone's imagination.  So Fall 2012 Haute Couture was not one of my favorites.  The clothes were too reasonable and wearable for me.  I would even describe them as casual!  I have a feeling the wonder was in the details and unfortunately that is hard to see in full length photos.  I was really surprised by the amount of pants this season.

Here are my highlights:

Dior:  I love a dress over a pair of pants.  Shorten that ball gown and throw on some trousers ladies!

Chanel:  I read that what looks like tweed is embroidery on tulle.  I wish I could see it in person.  I'm not sure if this was the look they were referring to.
