CHANEL Spring – Summer 2017

“Chanel is above all style. Fashion passes, style remains.” Gabrielle Chanel

Chanel is one of the most famous HIGH FASHION HOUSE that reinvented fashion combining sophistication and femininity and creating an uncomplicated luxury.

The Chanel Spring – Summer 2017 Fashion Show brought in front of us a brilliant creation.

The inspiration? A spoon … but not the one we find in the kitchen. The spoon is Alberto Giacometti´s sculpture Spoon Woman (1926). In an abstract vision, the spoon reveals a woman´s neck, bust, nipped-in waist at the top and curves into wide. We can see the spoon´s influence in many of Lagerfeld´s designs. The skirts and the coats are belted high and tight to highlight the curve of the hips.

THE SET 

This year we see something new to Paris Fashion Week – a circular mirror runway that gave a 3D effect so each piece popped into the eyes of the audience. With this change, Lagerfeld wanted the audience to focus on the different colours and textures of his creation. “I wanted something impeccable, clean. I wanted the girls to look like walking fashion drawings” said Karl for Vogue.

THE DESIGN

Talking about designs, Karl Lagerfeld reinvented the power of woman at Chanel Couture. All the pieces had intricate details, metallic sequins or beautiful feathers. “I must say, I love feathers” … we do too Karl. It gives an air of elegance and a ´40s, ´50s vibe to it.

In the show we see shimmering tones and sparkling clothes suit embroidered with faceted stones and sequins; soft pastel tweed skirt suits and coat dresses, tulip skirts with an exaggerated high waist and big marabou feather trim.

CLASSY SKIRT SUITS

Could be this a memoir to the Chanel outfit once worn by Jackie Kennedy?

THE GRAND FINALE

The finale of the show was featured by Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp) who wore a powder-pinko feathered wedding gown with an adjusted belt.

In the show we saw some familiar faces like famous models Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner but Lily-Rose Depp was the one to take a bow with the designer Karl Lagerfeld at the end of the show.

This show is just a statement of the Chanel greatness that came with stunning designs and a new concept of the runway. And Lagerfeld succeeded to impress the audience with this couture concept.

XOXO 💋
