Krikor Jabotian Couture Spring/Summer 2014

Officially rising to the top of my list of favourite couturiers is Krikor Jabotian. The more I view his designs, the more spellbound I am by his intricate detailing and ability to churn lifeless pieces of fabric into breathtaking pieces of art. Krikor's approach to couture is unlike any other, he engineers unique three-dimensional silhouettes that impress at every angle.

For Spring/Summer 2014 the Lebanese designer presents an exquisite range entitled 'AkhTamar', the romantic yet tragic love story of a princess called Tamar. She is dressed in a passionate cherry red, palest blush pink, ornate ivory and the purest white. Decadent metallic gold thread is embroidered across the dresses, forming elaborate rococo motifs. High-low hemlines are amplified by volume, necklines are kept demurely high and a labyrinth of tulle and chiffon pleated layers create ethereal waterfall skirts. Luminescent crystals are regally dusted upon the caped gowns, with Grecian inspired headpieces that add to the opulence of the collection.

Dresses magical enough to dream up your own exotic fairytale, this is Krikor Jabotian's Spring/Summer 2014 Haute Couture Collection.

Hi Sam! You already know my deep love for lebanese designers! And have to admit I didnt know this one. The collection is gorgeous beyond the word, what impressed me is the dramatic inspiration which is well transmitted from all the looks. My ever fav is the n.7, the color is so fierce and striking, also the golden embroideries and the Greek inspired headband are dreamy. You know, look at the look 8, I'd see Angelina Jolie so good in it!:) Happy Tues dear! xo

Michelle LL said...

Breathtaking dresses, amazing couture work, every details are perfection!! Would be nice to wear this on weddings and special social events. 3 and 6 are my favourites. April fools day was great, I managed to fooled some of my co workers by dropping a folded play money on the floor, it was nice to see their reactions, they all thought its a real £20 note haha. What did you do on April Fools? Do you people do it there in South Africa?

Caro * said...

Marvelous dresses. 3,5,6 are wonderful !

dahi. said...

oh my gosh. the 3rd dress is just ... amazing ... and the first red dress with the golden ornamental design - it's just stunning. i would die to wear this!

Peet said...

These really do look like something out of an exotic fairytale! I love the unexpected shapes and cuts, I always like seeing different and original silhouettes and here there's tons of that - each design looks so fresh! Number 5's my favorite. A delicate but mysterious and edgy gown, that shot from behind is gorgeous!

Mindy Erazo said...

WOW! These are absolutely incredible looks!
