After Chanel’s unforgettable A/W14 collection, where Karl Lagerfield incredibly turned the Grand Palais into a Chanel Grocery Store stocked full of real (yup, real) Chanel branded grocery products, we all wondered how could he possibly top that? Well my friend, too that he did!
At Paris Fashion Week he expertly turned the same venue into a French brasserie complete with red booths, bar stalls and working bar tenders!
The collection was nothing short of beautiful. There was a clear homage to the sixties with elegant knit suits and shift dresses, a-line skirts to the knee and cropped trousers. Masculine shapes were given a feminine feel with warm colours of navy’s, maroons, nudes and black and and interesting textures in the contrast of sheer, lace, knits and quilting.
The beauty look worn by the models was decidedly Bridget Bardot-esque with a winged eyeliner, nude lip and chic bouffant up-do finished win demure headbands. Overall I found the collection was feminine, on-trend, and I LOVED the colour palette used.
Check out some of the gorgeous snaps of the very original runway and some of the models stopping off at the bar for a beverage. Tough work that modelling gig..
