Chanel Couture SS15
Pippa has posted his fab report on the Chanel show which is right up my street, I love the set as much as the clothes!
Chanel’s runway shows often have the grandest and most lavish catwalks out of all the fashion houses, however this season caught my eye in particular. Yet again set in the Grand Palais in Paris, the catwalk was held inside a glasshouse within the building, decorated inside with mechanical exotic plants and flowers, which opened up as the show began. Whilst in keeping of Chanel’s classic style, many of the looks from the show reflect the exotic setup, which was inspired by Chinese paper lanterns and Henri Matisse’s cut out leaf work.
I’ve picked out a few of my favourite floral looks, all with intensively intricate embroideries. I can see these and the runway itself inspiring a lot of surface pattern and print design in the near future!
