With the likes of Dior, Ralph & Russo, Chanel, Givenchy, Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Viktor & Rolf and Elie Saab presenting their striking gowns and jaw-dropping looks.
Inspired by these beautiful Spring couture collections, we have picked our favourite high street products that are perfectly aligned with key pieces from Paris Couture– and the best part is that they are all available at Frenchgate!
JEAN PAUL GAULTIER
After 50 years, the couture show was Gaultier’s last so in celebration of his iconic work he used his journey as a designer as the inspiration for his collection. Alongside his renowned Bretton stripe and 90’s Madonna cone bras, Gaultier’s main couture looks consisted of corsetry detailing, cut outs, oversized belts, deconstructed outfits, accentuated sleeves, powerful tailoring, and lots of denim and khaki.
We love River island’s incredible denim range with grey ripped midrise denim shorts (1) and light blue denim mini skirt’s (2). Or why don’t you inject some military inspired khaki into your wardrobe – we adore the airy shirt dress (3) from H&M that you can dress up with heels or down with chunky trainers and a bomber jacket.
Summer 2020 will see a return of Roman inspired clothing from braiding and embroideries to lattice work and layered chiffon as showcased in the Christian Dior show. Gladiator sandals will make a comeback along with drapes, ties and gold jewellery. Pop into Debenhams for a pair of plaited, rope detail sandals – we think the Ravel - Silver 'Holmes' Leather Toe-Post Sandals (6) would look fabulous in the summer months.
Dior’s Artistic Director, Maria Grazia Chiuri used a classical Roman set as the template to her latest collection and truly made a statement with gold necklaces and earrings. You can achieve this look with the fabulous gold jewellery range from Lovisa, we love the Gold Layered Tiered Drop Earring (7) and the Gold Geometric Drape Collar Necklace (8) adding extra sparkle and opulence to your look.
Spring/Summer 2020 will welcome some incredible trends to the high street so keep an eye out in our stores for some couture inspired fashion across Frenchgate!
