Bouchra Jarrar showed yesterday her 10th couture collection as an independent designer. Her true love is about tailoring, she is technically skilled and inventive.

The challenge for Jarrar going forward is building on this strong foundation; and she did with sampling from the world of sport and playing with her perfecto signature.

“This collection is very historically inspired,” Simons said in a preview backstage according to WWD. “It felt like a challenge to look further back in history and see how I could modernize certain aesthetics. That is my constant drive, to make it younger and make it relevant to women in their lives today. Always, to be modern.”
Marco Zanini didn’t hold back with his second couture collection for the long-dormant house Schiaperelli. “Last season I felt really the fright,” he said. “I was so afraid about touching the legacy, because camp is a trap that is always around the corner with Schiaparelli. But I realized if I wanted to find the look, I cannot avoid going there, so why don’t I go there full-on?”
