Day 2: Good, So-so and amazing.
Karl Lagerferd took inspiration from his beloved XVIII century and placed it in the beachy villa. The first looks were dominated with house’s signature hand-woven tweed, two piece dressuit, which in my opinion, were good, but… not very interesting and innovative. But I have to admit, the midis with high slits were cute! In the further part of show it was all but better – we could spot extra-wide hips cage dresses and firm shoulders, characteristic for XVIII, few princess cocktail dresses and another no-no for me – motorcycle jackets with tulle white skirts. Details, as always when it comes to Chanel, were outstanding. Amazing fabrics – silk and flowy organza, excellent feather work and extremely detailed flower accents – some of them were real dried flowers dipped in resin! Final look (bridal) happened to be one-piece swimsuit embroiled with silver flower.
The House’s big inspiration was Art Deco in movie industry and you could feel the this amazing pre-WWI artistic vibe just by looking at few first looks. The show was opened with amazingly tailored silver suit with characteristic for 1930’s hat. You couldn’t notice the touch of red in every single look. Strong shoulders, perfect tailoring, geometric prints, sequin trousers and lacquered pieces were just incredible. My definite favorite pieces were flowy kimono and red skirts and dresses covered in see-through violet fabric. And that deep neck jumpsuit – yes, please!
Clare Waight Keller focused on classic, smart yet leveled up look. Perfectly tailored blazer opened the show, paired with glow-fit latex tights, which broke the Haute Couture with new concept! The runway was dominated with black and occasionally popping neon pink, red and yellow. My attention was especially caught on amazing cape dress (one of the first looks) and latex thights in lace worn by Kaya. Cage yellow lace dress and latex hourglass red gown were icing on the cake colorwise. And big shout-out for a massive backpacks I mistaken as big bow wings looking only from front!
