Paris Vogue dedicates its October issue hyper luxe, which results in a model wearing a mink slip dress in one of its pages. Since the word luxe is thrown around with far too much reckless abandon nowadays, I suppose Emmanuelle Alt had to move on to not just super luxe but hyper luxe to make a point - and that point is, I think, to show off fashion's craftsmanship, at least, the little of it that is left. I came across a BBC documentary on youtube, The Secret World of Haute Couture - which explores the world of haute couture and the few women who live their daily lives in these handmade treasures.
