CHANEL Spring/Summer 2017 Haute Couture: a princess’ dream
Piles of organza, satin and tulle, dozens of mirrors, thousands of white flowers: this was a perfect setup for the CHANEL Spring/Summer 2017 Haute Couture runway. It looked like a princess dream, even the decor is actually the exact replica of the ambiance of 31, rue Cambon. Or maybe just for that reason?
The House of Chanel ambassadors Vanessa Paradis, Anna Mouglalis, Caroline de Maigret, Alma Jodorowsky, G-Dragon and Shin Hye Park, the singer Cécile Cassel, the English actress Lucy Boynton as well as French actresses Laura Smet, Céline Sallette and Karidja Touré were all present at the Grand Palais to applaud the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2017 Haute Couture collection.
At Grand Palais, in a décor inspired by the 1930’s and Art Deco, the setting recalls the mirrors that reflect the grand staircase leading up to the CHANEL Haute Couture salons. What does the season’s look was, in Karl Lagerfeld view?
Let’s see how CHANEL Spring/Summer 2017 Haute Couture collection looks like..
- structured shoulders, defined and slightly raised waists, accentuated hips
- daringly low-cut décolletés and faux pearl jewellery transformed into anklets
- hues of white, silver and grey, the palette – illuminated each time with metallic, silver, sparkling and iridescent notes – blows hot and cold, moving from beige, pink, yellow, blue and pastel green through to black and navy
- pleated skirts and dresses are paired with coats in iridescent tweeds
- fabrics used are from duchess satin, organza and taffetas, flocked and laminated lace to tulle, jacquard and georgette.
- draped bustiers are embroidered with rhodoid flowers and leaves, big skirts and dresses in tulle, deep and square-cut necklines plunging to the start of the waist and marabou boleros
