The art form that is haute couture is decadence at it’s finest. Cloaking the human body as expressed by this art genre provides a hedonistic pleasure and fuels the imagination in a way that no other artistic expression can.
The following images are a fun, explorative romp of the art genre that is haute couture with a thread of a story weaved among the fashion images. Enjoy!

Above, designer Valentino provides the viewer with his interpretation of ethereal in motion. This season cloaking the human female form in attire that is so very light and presenting the form as the true beauty in and of itself.
Below, other designers embrace this season’s expression.
Below, designer Vivienne Westwood’s designs are edgy and also embrace the barely there expression of this genre of the arts.

The jewelry has it this season. So very decadent!
In keeping with this season’s theme this bejeweled skirt is richly provocative and chic!

Glam, glam, glam………………
(Above and below) Ohhhhh….it is Paris!
(Below) Off the charts original, inventive, over the top haute couture….lol!!!
In my opinion there really isn’t anything as gorgeous as the female form draped in opulent, rich, plush fur……I know, I know…..it’s not a politically correct thing to say these days but damn! It’s how I feel. Sorry to those who don’t agree.
(Below) Manolo Blanhnik shoes….every woman’s dream.
(Below) Designer Giorgio Armani always delights with innovative and fantasy driven designs as well as chic street wearable designs.
Again…..when it’s all about the bling!

There is nothing like “clean, crisp lines” in pure, winter white, a whole other elevated level of chic!

In closing I would like to thank my blog viewers for their loyalty. I hope you have enjoyed this posting, I know that highlighting the fashion industry in my blog is a very different approach for me to take while reviewing contemporary art as my subject but I honestly feel that haute couture is indeed very much contemporary art and an art that we wear every day. I hope the story I weaved between these most of note worthy designer fashions provided an inspiring imaginative visceral adventure for you.
I would also like to dedicate this posting of “Haute Couture Art” to a most grand lady of the fashion world…now retired model Ingmar Lamy.
Lots of Love,
