Spring 2016 Couture Runway Looks
Couture runways are always the most extreme, and usually the most beautiful — and this season's looks proved both to be true. We saw sheer fabrications take an angelic turn, while the post-apocalypse trend proved to be just as relevant, with top designers like Jean Paul Gaultier and newbie Yiqing Yin showcasing it best. Periwinkle hues were everywhere, as was the season's favorite era: the ’20s. See below for the best of the best in haute couture.
The 1920s return with subtly glamourous touches — it looks exceptionally amazing in long, fitted maxis.

A new type of sheer, this time with a celestial finesse and vintage feel.
Move over rose and sky blue — periwinkle is here.

Exaggerated, tiered volume in all shapes may not be the new ready-to-wear — but it’s definitely a couture runway choice.
