Having glanced over the Paris couture shows, not with the depth that I would like to because I've moved house and attended an open day this week, I have come to the conclusion that my favourite of the Spring 2008 haute couture was from Givenchy. Rather than trying to express this in words I am going to opt for visual language:

This is the kind of clothing that I am always drawn to, it reminds me of the best Ann Demeulemeester, a focus on cut and silhouette that makes you want to run in a mad dash to the designer and weep into their hem begging them to make you a nice coat. Sadly the black wall behind the catwalk made the photos difficult to decipher.

Unexpectedly I also really enjoyed the Valentino hats, especially the one below:
