We just talked about the clothes seen in the Haute Couture shows for the Spring Summer 2015 season drawing the main trends lines for the next couple of months. Now let’s tackle the hot accessories: shoes and bags!
Buckles and straps, chunky heels, plastic and exotic materials and folk elements – these are the main coordinates of the new collections presented by the most appreciated fashion designers in their Couture approach. Unlikely couplings, classic silhouettes and deja-vu with new a new perfume, let’s see the new creations!
Buckled straps & Exotic materials
Haute Couture is not for everyday wear, hence the multitude of rather uncomfortable details such as spaghetti thin straps with tiny buckles – have you tried walking or standing in this type of sandals for more than… 30 minutes? I did! I swear I think I still have the straps marks on my feet! At 15 minutes through wearing them, I felt like they were piercing through my skin. After 25 minutes of wearing them, I knew they already pierced my skin and were now strapped directly onto the bones! I’m sure I would’ve felt so much better knowing the straps were covered in crystals! Laser-cutting through my delicate feet skin!
Haute Couture can be friendly with one’s feet, though! This type of square-ish, chunky heel stands proof to the HC friendliness. However, save from a couple of exceptions, being feet-friendly also means a serious cutback on beauty! The Chanel booties were an exquisite example of hideousness!

Metallics & transparency
Haute Couture is supposed to be exquisite and fabulous! Nothing can say precious better than metallics and nothing screams ‘fantastic!’ better than layered transparency over precious materials – lace and plastic? Be still my heart! Too bad such a confined bootie will deliver such perspiration, thusly ruining the final effect of such fine footwear!
Haute Couture loves folklore – as a source of inspiration, folklore brings the uniqueness and richness so craved-after by HC customers! The attention to detail and the modern approach of ethnicity can deliver fabulous results, such as the Ulyana Sergeenko designs presented in the SS Haute Couture collection. Beautiful, intricate and funny in a sartorial way, of course!
