A small selection of some of my favourite looks from Spring 2012 Paris Couture Shows. One of the shows I also look forward to is Ellie Saab, however their latest collection was far too safe. Another collection that disappointed me was Jean Paul Gaultier, I felt it was hap-hazardly put together, I do however love this look above - great textures and combination of colours. I loved Valentino's feminine long dresses and the soft florals paired with matching self fabric shoes and the off the shoulder 'balloon sleeve' jackets seen at Chanel & Christiaan Dior. Christiaan Dior's use of sheer fabrics was absolutely divine putting it at the top of my list of favourite collections alongside  Giambattista Valli. x x x  K
