Traditional costume of Akha VS Valentino fw 2019/2020 Haute Couture

Akha traditional costumes

The Akha are an ethnic group who live in small villages at higher elevations in the mountains of Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Yunnan Province in China. Their number is more than 500,000 people.

Women wear broad leggings, a short black skirt with a white beaded sporran, a loose fitting black jacket with heavily embroidered cuffs and lapels. Akha women are known for their embroidery skills.

The headdresses worn by the women are the most spectacular and elaborate items of Akha dress.  Akha women define their age or marital status with the style of headdress worn. At roughly age 12, the Akha female exchanges her child’s cap for that of a girl. A few years later she will begin to don the jejaw, the beaded sash that hangs down the front of her skirt and keeps it from flying up in the breeze. During mid-adolescence she will start wearing the adult woman’s headdress. Headdresses are decorated by their owner and each is unique. Silver coins, monkey fur, and dyed chicken feathers are just a few of the things that might decorate the headdress. The headdresses differ by subgroup.

INCREDIBLY BEAUTIFUL: Valentino haute couture show in Beijing

VALENTINO HAUTE COUTURE IN BEIJING

Pierpaolo Piccioli’s Valentino haute couture show in Beijing’s was held at the Summer Palace.

 Piccioli found dynamic synergies with images of the masters of the early Italian Renaissance that he loves—Piero della Francesca and Fra Angelico, photographs taken of the Summer Palace itself, and of portraits of the emperors and empresses who once ruled here. Designer revealing unexpected aesthetic dialogues between grandness of old cultures, between history and heritage.

Top 10 fashion collections of spring-summer 2017

Spring-summer 2017 season in New York, London, Milan and Paris was very saturated. Obviously, 1980th is the main trend. Trash by Demna Gvasalia sets the trend, but seems not so fresh as season before.In view of all this, my top 10 fashion collections of spring-summer 2017 includes:

10. Gucci. Top brand, excessive images, 1980th.

9. Anya Hindmarch. New, fresh, interesting, beautiful.

8. Balenciaga. Trendsetter, but I don’t like Soviet style connections in Gvasalia’s work.

7. Hider Ackermann. Beautiful & interesting.

6. Roshas. The best color combinations.The most feminine collection.

5. Marc Jacobs. Looks like Gaultier, but looks so beatiful.

4. Miu Miu. I don’t like Prada this season, but in Miu Miu ss 2017 are a few of vyshyvankas )

3. Valentino. 2 designers minus 1 designer = better collection. 

2. Saint Laurent. So trendy, so beatiful, so Yves…

1. Louis Vuitton. The best. The most contemporary. First time I like Nicolas Ghesquière’s collection so much.

Just ahead in Ukraine we will have Fashion Week in Kiev and Lviv Fashion Week. I’ll be there and You can read my reports from the front row at
