To borrow from Zoolander's Mugatu, Franck Sorbier's Fall/Winter 2010/11 haute couture collection explores the boundaries of derelicte chic. Floor-sweeping dresses feature voluminous skirts created from crumpled brown paper and are finished with paper mache corsets. Corrugated cardboard and natural wooden pegs provide the final flourishing touches.
Another look employs Ritz Bits and M&M wrappers in a colorful pastiche of patchwork rubbish. Echoing Margiela's upcycling of vintage clutches, the main trend from the Paris haute couture collections seems to be one we can easily adopt ourselves.
