Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Spring/Summer 2014

by - Wednesday, October 02, 2013

Well Well it’s been quite busy around here regarding myself (I’ve started my new job this week) enough said that it is what I’m quite used to in blogger terms. Yet it is a position which will learn me to be the jack of all trades.

Paris fashion week has been on my list to review (especially it adds the details of Marc Jacobs leaving Louis Vuitton today – review coming ASAP and of course Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld’s artistic vision.)

Karl Lagerfeld opened up the 1st Chanel exhibition yesterday and my goodness the Chanel girl has been turned into an artist! Well metaphorically by Lagerfeld’s vision regarding what the Chanel women would be wearing for spring/summer 2014. As ever the tweed and knitwear was used throughout the collection since this a traditional material used by the fashion house and for spring/summer 2014 it came in the colour palette of neon, pink, black and white. Pearls (which are a tradition to be worn by the Chanel girl) were placed as little details on the sleeves of the garments.


The skirts were full length whilst, the accessories became paint sets and brushes to portfolios. Colour swatches turned into the physical elements of the skirts and the top half of the outfits which were the coats which came with either a stripy pattern.  Where we had stripes of colour checks came through the coats on a paler scale of pale pink and grey with slivery details of the double C’s to make up the Chanel logo.

From the patterns of a washed colour tailoring came with a monochrome palette of the fitted white jackets with its lapels and top line of the pockets adorned by black. Trousers came simply in a vision of white.

Accessories featured Perspex bags and spray painted rucksacks whilst the shoes were white booties with black toe caps. Overall the collection was as always modern and refreshing the Chanel girl’s closet for the coming seasons.
