Bearing witness to this dichotomy, the fashion show of the VBBFW and Haute Couture are the stage where a game of contrasts, sometimes vintage, sometimes futuristic, is played. Graphic inserts for Isabel Sanchis, overlapping for Maggie Sottero, ‘bon ton’ details for Cristina Tamborero and Sophie et Voilà.

For Haute Couture, a garment very similar to the first Chanel dress walked the Paris runway: a dress in black velvet with a white collar because, according to the couturier, black covered it all, including white, beauty was absolute, it was all perfect harmony.
There are many designers who aim at the refinement of this combination, from Givenchy to Antonio Grimaldi, from Ralph & Russo to Giambattista Valli and Giorgio Armani.
