Held in the Grand Palais, Karl Lagerfeld dedicated his collection to the Chanel seamstresses, who are the very soul of the French House’s ateliers. Lagerfeld recreated the Chanel ateliers to the very last detail. Graphic shapes, accentuated shoulders, large trousers and three-quarter sleeves. Jackets were boxy with large collars, accentuated by the black and white eye makeup and big hair held in headbands. Lace bustiers with satin and tulle. Tweed meets sheer fabrics like organza and silk applied in textured layers, highlighting the incredible craftsmanship of Chanel.
