The streets of Paris, a route on the Quai de Conti to be precise, formed the backdrop of Chanel’s couture show this week. A signature Chanel collection titled High Profile, filled with classic tweed suits and delicate, crystal encrusted showpieces. Hairdo: rockabilly style. Color code: gray with touches of pastels and neutrals. Tweed suits with skirts that ended just above the knee and jackets with long slit sleeves formed a big part of the collection. Other returning ingredients were strong shoulders, lots of layers of tulle, cut-outs, high collars and sparkly boots. A finally of opera worthy gowns had some pieces so lavishly decorated they seemed like a heavy burden to wear. Luckily some high slits and off shoulder details added a little space to the looks. A bride in a mint colored, floral embroidered, diamond encrusted skirt and top with matching headpiece and veil was the last women the walk alongside the Seine. A show very Paris and very French (as Karl Lagerfeld himself put it) and thus the ultimate promotion of both the city and it’s astonishing haute couture.
