Couture style inspiration

Aaah a week of couture! I will not review all the collections, there are plenty of blogs that do that much better than me. But I wanted to write about a few looks that caught my eye, and the styles that I hope to see translated into non-couture wear.
1. The new ombre: I loved a few new takes on ombre, such as at Armani (bottom right), where a space-y metallic ombre was presented. I also loved the beautiful shades of grey at Dior (top two images), both the layered ombre that builds up in each layer, and the sheer black to white ombre were subtle but modern takes on this trend.
2. Matching your loafers with your couture dress: or any dress for that matter! I couldn't believe I was seeing loafers at a couture presentation, but there they were at Valentino (bottom right). Looks in different colours had different coloured loafers, and the effect was really cute!
3. Hot pink with a gold statement necklace. I've always loved the combination of pink and gold, but seeing it in this Giambattista Valli look made me want to find a way to wear it now! The hot pink with the massive gold statement was an amazing look.
