The Patternbank team have selected some hot picks from Fall 2019 Haute Couture runway shows. Check out the rest of the best of Couture Fall 2019 here.

Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture Fall 2019

Guo Pei’s theatrical array of eclectic costumes ranged from Renaissance style gowns to corseted Kimonos and from grand ecclesiastical robes to wide Marie Antoinette style Pannier skirts. This collection was cleverly connected with a neutral colour palette and were all adorned with intricate embellishments and structural embroideries. In stark contrast, colour and crafty texture were key ingredients in Viktor & Rolf’s Couture collection. Densely felted fabrics and patched vintage remnants depicted scenes and sunrises and pictorial embellished skirts came complete with embroidery hoops.
