Bows are essential details this season: delicate, feminine satin or velvet at the neck, round the waist or on shoes.

Elie Saab attaches a bow beneath the  bust, linked to an asymmetric strap to emphasize a slim waist and bare shoulder (top letf). An exuberant and oversized bow features on an orange cocktail dress (orange being the big colour of the season) at Lacroix (top right), while we see a delicate black bow appears on a white dress at Valentino (right).
