As Paris Couture Week marches on, Karl Lagerfeld presented his spring collection for Chanel at the Grand Palais, sending out 66 ladylike looks that ranged from waist-cinching tweed suits to fully sequined and feathered gowns.
In the opening looks, the house’ tailoring was highlighted, with the newest iteration of the classic suit featuring strong shoulders, waists cinched by a wide belt and rounded hips.
The dresses were created with organza, taffeta and duchess satin and decorated with embroidery, lace, jacquard, tulle and feathers. The silhouettes were strong, and included slim column gowns as well as bell-skirts, both worn with wide belts.
Everywhere the collection sparkled. A sequined silver cocktail dress with touches of purple and pink, belted below the bust, melted into a pink feather skirt dusted with metallic leaves.
“I wanted everything silvery, mirror, metallic and aluminium-like and I thought this was a perfect setting for the collection. All the embroidery is abstract. ” said Lagerfeld, adding, “I wanted something impeccable.”
Saving the best for last, Lily-Rose Depp positively stunned in a ruffled blush bridal gown, complete with puffed sleeves, a buttoned-up bodice and a wide belt for the show’s grand finale that’s in Karl’s word – FLAWLESS.
