Runway: Chanel Couture Hits the Casino

From the supermarket to the urban streets, then a restaurant and the garden, Chanel‘s runway has taken us a bit all over the place as of late. For the Fall 2015 Haute Couture collection, Karl Lagerfeld brought us to the casino, with special guests Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins in tow!

I hadn’t planned on discussing Chanel Fall 2015 Couture onĀ Dream in Lace, but honestly Karl Lagerfeld took me by surprise. After a string of collections that left me feeling quite, ‘Meh’ – I once again fell in love with Chanel, with its dazzling waist coats and sparkling evening wear that make me want to throw on some red lipstick and head off to the casino myself! That’s the thing about fashion, it can inspire.

After Chanel’s Spring 2014 couture collection, with its vibrant colors and ostentatious embellishments, Fall 2015 is decidedly more streamlined. Models adorned with cropped bobs flew down the runway in the good ole’ standard classics! Among them were Hollywood startlets Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins, as well as the stunning and demure Julianne Moore in a swanky green velvet number. (Definitely, my favorite look of the day!)

While Hollywood hit the tables for some gambling, models showed 67 couture looks, ranging from daytime ladies-who-lunch suits, to cocktail evening wear that flirted with a 40’s aesthetic. There’s no denying Mr. Karl Lagerfeld has a real knack for breathing new life into the classic Chanel silhouette. Perhaps the most covetable thing of all about Chanel’s Fall 2015 couture is how seamlessly he brought new life to timeless pieces.

Lagerfeld spiced up waistcoats with sheer sleeves, dresses with asymmetrical hemlines and crisp skirts sprinkled with shimmer. Of course, there is nothing more modern than the closing menswear bridal look, worn on Kendall Kardashian. (Who apparently has become a supermodel literally overnight. *sigh*)

As 67 looks is quite grand, I tried to narrow down my favorites – but the list is still, QUITE long! So brace yourself for a hefty bit of scrolling (and drooling). (No, really. You might want to grab a tissue.)

Still with me? šŸ˜‰

I suppose if I had to choose favorite looks from Chanel’s Fall 2015 couture, I’d go for the greens. As an auburn haired girl myself, I’ve developed a bit of a love affair with green. After all, we should all fall in love with the colors that suit us best! Although, there were quite a few ‘little black dresses’ I’m coveting for my closet right now. (Anyone want to loan me about $30,00 for a shopping spree?)

All in all, I give the collection a grade of A-! Pretty major, considering Chanel’s been falling around the C+ range for me lately. Props to you Karl for stepping up your game! Of course, let me know in the comments what grade YOU give this collection? And if you’re hungry for more, click hereĀ to view the full collection.
