A Visit to Ralph and Russo's Showroom in Paris

Miss me? No? Well I do and I miss my blog! So how about i kick start the posts with some over-the-top couture creations?? Back in January, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my most admired designers in the couture business, Ralph and Russo. After attending their breathtaking  fashion show (posted about it on my instagram and snapchat), I am still lost for words to describe this amazing experience where you get an up close and personal look at the incredible craftsmanship of couture by one of the biggest names in fashion. It's moments like these that I wish I had my high-res camera with me to capture these exquisite moments. Unfortunately I had to settle for my iPhone.

The world of couture is very private and one must be invited to receive an appointment in the designers' Paris showrooms. I have had the privilege of visiting Ralph and Russo's showroom in Paris (what can I say? the perks of working in fashion retail), set in a beyond beautiful Parisian apartment. The smell of the candle.. how can I describe it? It is not always easy to describe the smell of a candle, it felt like a rainstorm on a summer night with a mix of spicy notes of saffron and cinnamon, and maybe some fig? Basically it was a heavenly smell. Of course I had to check out the candle's brand, it was by ROJA and the candle was called Amber Aoud. On my "must buy" list for my home.

Anyhow, back to the couture presentation, according to the brand "the Spring/Summer 2017 couture collection explores the coexistence of urban and natural spheres, interpreting contemporary femininity through its opposites". The pieces on display felt like they were inspired by a botanical garden with an urban twist. Think petal embellished patterns, floral-like details, and a hint of soft geometric shapes. The collection was simply what couture dreams are made of. Scroll down to view the selection I have fallen in love with. 

The kind of jewelry you would want to wear with your couture pieces of course... hearts!

And last but not least, compliment the entire look with the brand's shoes and bags selection...
