Fishing for Compliments: On Aura Tout Vu Couture

This has to be one of my favourite collections from this season’s Paris Couture week: On Aura Tout Vu (‘you think you’ve seen it all’ for those of you – like me – who didn’t take French) which, given the Paris-based design trio’s penchant for the wacky, theatrical and – some might say – OTT,  couldn’t be more appropriate in the wonderful world of branding.

Adored by Lady Gaga – rumour has it she has already ordered the entire new collection (save your shock and awe – this label is so Gaga it hurts) and serving up a glamorously distorted vision of an aquatic paradise (replete with bubble wrap monsters, giant multifaceted ‘bubble’ collars and piscine accessories and applique – the stuffed sea-monster shoulder-pads and cuffs were a definite winner for me; totally kitsch), On Aura Tout Vu’s Fall couture collection merges the ironic humour of surrealism with eminently wearable classic-chic tailoring. With a collection this good the compliments require no fishing!
