Paris Fashion Week is in full-flow with the Autumn/Winter 2013/14 collections currently hitting the runways. Italian designer Giorgio Armani’s Couture collection, interestingly entitled "Nude", includes some very feminine designs with some interesting additions.

Nude gowns dominated Giorgio Armani’s Couture collection at the Paris fashion Week on Tuesday. Held in the Palais de Chaillot near the Eiffel Tower, the Autumn/Winter collection features fluid fabrics in pale and subtle tones, reflecting its title "Nude".

A host of European fashionistas joined Hollywood star Milla Jovovich in the front row, along with British actress Naomie Harris and Chinese actress Zhang Jingchu.

The use of the fabrics tulle and organza inject some lightness to the day wear, with trousers and skirts floating to create a sensual feminine silhouette. The shimmering evening gowns were encrusted with Swarovski crystals, with black feather necklaces and high heels completing the outfits.

Designer Alexandre Vauthier approaches his work with almost mathematical reasoning - crafting clothes that cling strategically to women's bodies.

Vauthier displayed his extraordinary tailoring skills, effortlessly combining a sculpted look with softness. Strict black and white colors are mellowed by shades of blush and sky blue, and perfectly-cut jackets or corsets contrasted with short, silk skirts.

After the show, Vauthier confessed that the starting point for this collection was a recent motorcycle accident he was in. "... It was the first idea of the collection," he said. "Of course we are very far from this kind of thinking, you know?"
