Krikor Jabotian Fall Couture 2013

Mondays have become more like 'Carried Away by Couture' Days here on Frills & Thrills. I hope you don't mind, but there is far too much prettiness being cultivated in the couture world not to share. And Mondays should begin on a high haute note, right?

I am currently captivated by the ingenious Beirut-based designer Krikor Jabotain. The talented couturier began work at the creative department of none other than Elie Saab, before later embarking upon his own label at just 23. Krikor offers us new insight into the elaborate world of couture; he proposes high-end glamour without the usual glitzy beadwork and flashy shades.

His modern approach to the art sees focus on three-dimensional silhouettes, capitalization of voluminous proportions and the undeniable romance of ruffles. For Fall 2013, Jabotain paints a celestial white, ivory and matt gold palette in asymmetrical shapes, featuring skirts and bodices that are lavishly texturized with a majestic splay of frothy layered frills. 

Diaphanous lace, woven embroideries, sheer tulle skirts and feathered finishings contribute to the dramatic bridal-like looks. These Goddess dresses are nothing short of spectacular, pieces of wearable art that flaunt an undulating sense of movement and embody all that is feminine.

Are you also enchanted by these resplendent dresses?

These beautiful gowns make me wish that I was an actress or singer so that I could wear them on the red carpet :) The ruffles are soooo gorgeous. I especially love look 2!

Kacie Cone said...

Look 9 is just lovely! The feathered bottom is so stunning!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

Oh I love the elegant shape of look 3! I am reminded of the structure of Vera Wang and glamour of Marchesa here!

monica said...

I like number 1 because its simple but chic. Number two as high-low items can make you look as a chic surprise. But my favorite is number 7 with all those ruffles.

Rosh S said...

My dear Sam, I am so happy to finally be able to catch up on your posts! And this one is a real stunner! I can't believe I've never heard of this designer before, but from now on, he's firmly placed on my radar :) His designs are simply breathtaking! I can't tear my eyes off of the perfect work, gorgeous fabrics and stunning details. This is definitely a talent to watch!
And I totally agree with you on "couture Mondays" - Mondays definitely need to be embellished as far as I'm concerned!

Hope you are well, sweetie!

OMG!!! Amazing and stunning collection. I never heard of this designer before. Look number 1, 6 and 8 are my favorites. You don't have a cineplex. That's awful. I have seen MOS in 3d but it's not neccesary. It's not really a 3d movie. Hope you have the chance to see it and I wish you a happy Monday Sam!!

Morning Sam! Hope you had a nice weekend! You are right, we have to search for a leopard gown as that one, though I havent seen nothing similar!:) Btw, you see, Lebanese are one of the best designers in the world. Krikor Jabotain is really great, I am so enchanted by his work. All the looks are dreamy, my fav is the number 8, the lace embroideries sheer and pearls are just awesome on that gown, wish I owned it!:) Also I like the look number 4, love the tulle peplum detail on the lace skirt. Hope your week kicked off at the best my dear, big kisses! xo

Oh gosh, the cuts on these are gorgeous! I love how the fabric creates these really organic shapes from the fabric that poofs out so nicely into the surrounding space. Especially that second one--I like how the lace dress part is visible and contrasts so well against the full white asymmetrical skirt.

Oh my god. The cuts, the lines, everything is absolutly flawless. I have the biggest crushes on look 1, 2, 4 & 6. Like really, they are perf. wow.
