HAUTE COUTURE: Chanel Spring 2015










Chanel Spring 2015 Haute Couture

It's been a while since I've posted a Chanel collection on the blog. Sadly I've been feeling less inspired by Karl's vision for the brand, as I'm too big a fan of the classic Chanel look of the eighties and nineties. I love the fantasy element that Karl gives us, but I wish I could look at the collection and see Chanel in it, instead of net fantasy. And then this collection comes around, as though Karl took serious note of what we've been recently criticizing.

The show was, very traditionally, held in Paris and the venue was transformed into a gorgeous, vibrant,tropical greenhouse filled with these huge, colorful oversized flowers blooming throughout the show. 
The looks were equally as vibrant and colorful as the venue, or perhaps, even more... This collection was filled with so much life, and almost an eerie happiness that comes with spending time in nature. There were some delightful frocks and skirts with silk flower appliqués, princess like tulle dresses with embroidery from head to toe, sparkles were spread out, and the classic tweed suits came in bright colors and had fringed ends. 

The wedding dress which closed the show featured a full length, and train of, handmade fabric flowers. This being one of the more wearable dresses I've ever seen from more recent Chanel couture collections, I love it. Also, notice instead of traditional flower girls, we have flower holding male models to escort the bride - this too, I love. xx

  14. Everytime I see some sort of knit (much like in that first picture) I think of Chanel, so I suppose it is slowly starting to become more iconic for the Chanel image. But I always think classic is best.

  21. It's an edgy collection but I am afraid the fringes are not at the right places to make one look feminine! Regardless I can totally see the Chanel touch in each of them. Great post!
