Take a deep sea dive into Chanel's SS12 collection

by - Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Its the second to last day of Paris Fashion Week. To start the day we found ourselves in the Grand Plalais where the wandering theme of bleached white sea bed with giant shells, sea horses and sea weed climbing up towards the huge, glimmering shower curtain that contained it all. The atmosphere was filled with twinkling harp music to a haunting classical music.

As the show started down the runway came down delicate sea creatures darting out from the white in cream dresses. The collection also featured one of Chanel's remarkable material of tweed. The tweed was featured as pearlised tweed suits with full skirts and jackets cut shoulder-blade high at the back to show off pearl-studded spines.

The rest of the collection featured sequined dresses falling to pale green ostrich feather skirts and chiffon. Accessories came down the runway as pearlised encrusted sea shells which was for the clutch bags, and sliver leather bags were creased which were twinkling just like the sun had caught the crest of the waves. There was dresses with rippled black-edged, pink printed chiffon scales, another had puffed black lace sleeves and fell in tiers of pale sequins. On the other hand there was a sporty  side to the collection featuring Silver lamé skirts had drawstring waists and leather pencil skirts with matching, elastic-edged bomber jackets which all was given an underwater sheen.

Throughout the collection there was very bit of detail you possible put into a collection or onto a garment. The collection left me speechless and I loved every minute of the show.
