Chanel Fall 17 Haute Couture
- Evangelie Smyrniotaki
The Chanel Fall 2017 couture show was a triumphant celebration of Coco Chanel and the city in which she lived; evident by a scale replica of the Eiffel Tower in the middle of Grand Palais. The set design may have filled Instagram feeds today, but it was the breath-taking collection that filled our hearts with admiration for the Parisian je-ne-sais-quoi and awe for the style that is characteristic of the undisputed fashion capital of the world.
Tweeds and leathers dominated the runway today, embellished with feathers and finished off with beautiful boater hats. The shoes were sublime too, all in patent leather in various lengths (I’m very, very tempted by the knee-high ones).
Karl Lagerfeld creates a unique world around each collection and within these worlds live the most exquisite Haute Couture pieces that I am so lucky to experience.
Thank you Chanel!
