Alexis Mabille’s Couture 2011 collection: creatures straight out of La Fontaine’s animal fables. It’s just normal to use fur when your inspiration is nature and the woods, no?
Some strong fur trends can be noticed in this collection: animal print, fur sleeves and strong shoulders. My favorite piece from this collection is definitively the fur dress with the feathers. What’s yours?

Lebanese designer Elie Saab never ceases to amaze me with his feminine and simply gorgeous gowns. His Couture collection, shown in Paris July 6th, is my absolute favorite of the latest Couture shows; I’m a romantic, I always fall for the dresses fit for a fairy tale princess.
Fur flowers and Swarovki crystal
The brand’s signature embellishment of beads and cristals added sparkle to the icy blue, champagne and rose-gold shades of the gowns. What I really love is the subtle fur details that were added, keeping the look light and ethereal. In this collection, fur is used to create a pattern on the light, semi-sheer fabric. Designers are experimenting with fur in new ways that have rarely been explored before: we are far away from full-fur coats!

Now, I just need to cross my fingers for my white knight to win the lottery and buy me one of this decadent creations. But I’ll probably end-up printing the pictures and pinning them on my mood wall…
- I would totally get married in the white dress!
