Haute Couture Fashion Week doesn’t stop for anyone, not even for Fourth of July. One of my favorite times of the year is upon us and what better way to wind-down the long weekend with a re-cap of Couture Week: Chanel edition.
Paris, the place I was for literally seven minutes and forty-two seconds of my life, a city that represents romance, high-fashion, warm croissants and champagne. But there were no carbs for this group of people, because fashion.
Chanel, my all-time favorite fashion house, put on a astonishing show. Building the iconic landmark, Eiffel Tower replica in the middle of Grand Palais, making the setting of Paris twice as real as being, well, in Paris.
The collection was Lagerfeld’s inspiration and takeaway of Eiffel Tower, by making structured dresses and overcoats. Boat hats were also a huge takeaway from the show– one of the trends we must watch out for in the up-coming seasons, garments of mixed colored feathers and crystals.
After models walked down the runway with thigh-high boots, dramatic skirts and a bridal gown for the big finale, Karl received The Grand Vermeil medal by Anne Hidalgo, the city’s mayor. Hidalgo stated:
” A big talent; a unique person; someone who makes Paris more magical; someone who makes Paris a city in which things happen. Paris loves you, Karl. You are Paris.”
Accessories for this collection was stated as very Coco and I couldn’t agree with it more. The big earrings, playful feathers and not to mention boat hat screams Coco Chanel!
The collection screamed: Parisian style, and I just loved every aspect of it.
