It's always such a pleasure to review the Chanel shows because it's always a spectacle. I loved last seasons protest theme with models walking down the runway together, rioting for female rights and the show before, in an art gallery inspired runway for a fantastic collection. This season, Chef Karl created a a brasserie; a type of French restaurant with a relaxed setting. 'The Brasserie Gabrielle' it was called with plush leather seats and models seated nonchalantly with each other. Lagerfeld really wanted to emphasise the bourgeois and elegance of his Chanel woman. She enjoys indulgence and lives a life of absolute pleasure. The collection had poise and confidence, which helped the models relax in their toe-capped chic heels.
And of course there was tweed, the staple material which lies at the core of Chanel. He was able to capture Paris from the past, women in elegant clothing; seriously sharp yet somehow sensual. The models appeared somewhat reserved, in contrast to daring and alluring eye-makeup. I loved the set, which was leaking with exuberance and style. Yet another wonderful collection from Karl Lagerfeld.
