The Grand Palais of Paris was transformed into a gilded casino for displaying the couture collection. Once again fashion player Karl Lagerfeld lived up to the maxim of Coco Chanel of being different in order to be irreplaceable.
It was a star studded affair with celebrities like Julianne Moore, Vanessa Paradis, Lily Collins, Kristen Stewart were found gambling in a make-believe casino during the show.
The oomph factor was added to classic ‘Chanel’ outfits with semi transparent metallic fabrics and leather collars.
Outsized woollen jackets and long knee sized skirts surely show Chanel’s functionality as day-to-day luxury attire.
Chanel’s sophisticated drama was kept going with pearls and sequins. After all, Lagerfeld surely masters the art of preserving the past while keeping the obsession for the future ablaze!
The ‘House of Chanel’ indeed is technologically up breasted with 3D technique of selective laser sintering. The classic jackets are made from computer manipulated seamless technology producing the effect of ‘faux quilt’.
Chanel outfits without jewellery is incomplete. A contemporary version of Coco Chanel’s 1932 version of ‘bijoux de diamantes’ was issued at the show !
Kim Kardashian’s younger sister Kendall Jenner made highlights in the show by walking the ramp as Chanel’s Bride while parading her white military pant suit.
The makeup on the models was surely theatrical with short hair, thick brows and blood red lips!
As stated by Lagerfeld on his clientele coming from another planet, surely creates exclusivity to ‘The House of Chanel’.
But is that really true? What’s your take on that?
