5 Haute Hair Accessory Trends From Couture Fashion Week

Haute Couture may be known for its crazy won't-look-out-of-place-on-Lady-Gaga concoctions, but that doesn't mean it won't influence our everyday looks. Taken from the, erm, understated, side of Paris's latest fashion showcases, are the accessories, which, in comparison to some of the clothes, are relatively easy to wear in everyday life. 

And is it just me, or can hair accessories totally take your look to the next level? From flirty floral crowns, to glitzy and polished pieces, if we got any more princessy we would actually be running around screaming 'Let It Go'.

But it's ok to be a Princess, and with these five luscious accessory trends from Haute Couture fashion week (and my luxe on a budget options) we can truly give Cinderella a run for her money.


Valentino
  Following Valentino's couture treasure-hunt around Rome as a per-requiste to the show, the heavy embodiment of Italy's capital was translated to every detail of the collection. The shiny gold alice bands displayed ancient imperial animals, such as the stagg, the lion and the eagle. What do these animals have in common? They are warriors, of course! So if you're feeling stylishly courageous, why not bring out your inner gladiator with these stunning star-dotted gold pieces?






Luxe For Less


Elie Saab
Saab's gowns were beaded and laced to utter princess perfection. The hair pieces took more of a medieval turn, with voluminous, chunky gold crowns playing contrast against 70s centre partings. Some of the alice bands were more of a nod to the Grecian trend, with foliage-like shapes spread across double hard bands.





Luxe On A Budget

Atelier Versace
Donatella took cues from the return of 70s Boho and melted this into her iconoc high glamour style. Models were transformed into wood nymphs draped in soft lilac, blue and nude tones. The hair accessories were the epitomisation of this fairytale. Beaded and set in soft metallic tones, these delicate flower crowns are sure to set the previous floral crown trend back into motion. Keep it small, dainty and muted and your in for a win!

(I wrote a piece on this collection for Miro Door, which can be viewed here)




Luxe On A Budget


Zuhair Murad
Glitzy and magic in equal parts, this collection took inspiration from classic regal attire and combined it with the sparkly magicians assistant. Hair pieces were, quite literally, seeing stars. If this is a little bit too 'Sabrina' for you, take a sparkly cue from this collection and seek bands dripping in diamantes.





Luxe On A Budget
Alberta Ferretti
Gilded, baroque motif prints were presented on slightly bohemian shapes, making Ferretti's collection both unique, yet incredibly wearable. Models' hair was twisted at the front and weaved around gunmetal pieces of fabric, creating a look that was surprisingly both Baroque and boho at the same time.
