Neoclassicism at the Spring 2014 Couture Shows

January 24, 2014

Zuhair Murad | Vionnet | Elie Saab | Versace | Alexis Mabille

If Chanel and Christian Dior were inspired by the modern now, then other couture houses like Elie Saab and Alexis Mabille were inspired by the glorious past.

There was a decidedly Grecian influence to many of the couture collections, with an emphasis on elegant asymmetrical drapery and the manipulated form.

The models rocked these dresses like the classical statuettes that immortalized the traditional Greco-Roman dress, and the end result is incredibly elegant. The Elie Saab and Versace dresses in particular are sure to be all over red carpets in the coming weeks, and I cannot wait to see them in action!

There's a reason these looks are so classic!

    1. Me too! It's definitely inspired by classical drapery, but it is totally modern.
