An owl, a deer or an elephant of colossal size adorn the Chanel catwalk. The models raffle these pieces created by the artist Xavier Veilhan also evoking fauna with their looks. A fascinating staging that reminds us of those viral shows by Karl Lagerfeld.
Virginie Viard remains firm in her conviction and once again endorses the emblems of Chanel. We have seen pearls, tweed and many looks dyed in black, but with a fresh touch and always maintaining his desire that even a beaded dress maintain that comfort point of which Coco Chanel herself was a pioneer.
WE ZOOM IN ON 5 DETAILS OF THE CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE SHOW
We analyze the 5 most striking details of the show, an ode to Parisian chic and a good preview of upcoming trends.
FOR THE NIGHT: BLACK AND TRANSPARENCIES
The dress has been the centerpiece of the proposal. We have also seen many looks tinged with black, a color associated with the brand’s DNA and more trending than ever this spring-summer, breaking the general trend of prioritizing cheerful colors. Viard has made evident the to know how to do by Chanel with sublime dresses with an impeccable fit, skirts adorned with perfectly structured ruffles or strategic transparencies that subtly reveal the skin.
YES: A TWEED LOOK
The designer also gives a twist al tweed, which will be one of the most demanded fabrics in the halftime season. It maintains its classic essence but is modernized through shelter dresses o two piece sets made up of a fitted jacket and shorts or a miniskirt. To find a more sophisticated or festive finish, the designer proposes play with accessories. If this winter has been the season of the tie, now it is the turn of the bow tie.
THE VIRTUOSISM OF DETAIL
Talking about Chanel implies lying his artisan. Their small hands – seamstresses, embroiderers and other expert artisans – have once again staged the concept of Haute Couture with looks as fascinating as this two-piece, with a sublime multicolor beaded embroidery in gradients. More than a garment, a work of art. We would love to see one of the house’s ambassadors, such as Penlope Cruz or Tilda Swinton, dressed in a design like this at the next Oscars.
GOODBYE HEEL HEELS
The shoes always plays a key role in Chanel shows. The firm has maintained its characteristic two-tone shoes, with contrasting toecaps, and its commitment to comfort. We have seen golden ankle boots with a rocker essence, lace-up boots and loafers. Nothing to climb to the heights, even if you wear a party dress, the proposal is to resort to the sensible heel or flat tread.
A DIFFERENT GIRLFRIEND
The model Anna Ewers has been in charge of closing the parade with a wedding dress very original. Short, strapless and dotted with swallows in relief. Birds have also adorned her veil. And as a finishing touch: the aforementioned gold colored ankle boots. A foretaste of the robe in terms of new bridal trends: flee from pomposity to embrace individuality.
