Karl Lagerfeld was on his best behavior for the Chanel showing held at the supremely lit Grand Palais in Paris.
The collection was quintessentially modern and classic with intricate plays on bejeweled necklines, lace primping and textured embroidery.
It was an inflated paradise, with streams of heavenly delights that didn’t veer far from the signature elements that have made Chanel a staple for the ultra-chic jetsetters. Immaculately constructed suits bathed in tweed and dipped in sequins were flashed with a parade of glamorous gowns that diligently dramatized the true meaning of “haute couture”. The color scheme bordered on practical and airy with no dominants.
The thrills, the frills, and the squeals combined with a visually evoking tapestry of romantically fluid pieces helped justify the clamoring adulations the House of Chanel inspires.
