Baring their midriffs and bright red lips, models debuted a fresh Chanel Spring 2015 haute couture collection that’s undeniably youthful.
Amidst a garden of paper mache, rumored to take one year to construct, Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Spring 2015 haute couture collection debuted in Paris this week and it was predictably grandiose.
Say what you will about our dear pal Karl, but the man sure knows how to put on a show! He also appreciates some great eye candy, kicking off the show with two very svelte male models ‘watering’ the set before the looks began skipping down the runway.
As always, Chanel grew a large and important crowd. Both Anna Wintour and Anna Dello Russo were in attendance, along with recent face Kristen Stewart and one of my favorite models to crush on, Lena Perminova. Just what was Chanel serving this season? Well, crop tops and a whole lot of embellishment!
Chanel Spring 2015 Haute Couture
I feel like it’s been a minute since I talked about Chanel on Dream in Lace, and no I’m not being irreverent. Each Chanel collection garners a lot of attention, so I go a bit mute on the subject…you know, as not to be a completely predictable bore. If there’s one thing I hate, it’s beating a dead horse…and fashion minded folk just LOVE to discuss Karl’s tweed happenings.
But on the Chanel Spring 2015 haute couture, I’m adding my two scents because I found it all so deliciously ostentatious, if not a little wacky. I also think it’s a polarizing collection, which is fun. Karl Lagerfeld knows how to get people talking and there’s simply no way a sea of midriffs in Coco’s signature tweed jackets won’t raise an eyebrow or two.
Silhouette wise, I think we can all vote we’re going very young here. No more old granny at the country club clutching her pearls. Nope. Today’s Chanel girl is much younger — and very UP on her pilates game.
And, after a very muted palette last fall, the Chanel Spring 2015 haute couture collection features color in a BIG way – both for your ensemble and your lips.
It’s certainly an interesting time for Chanel, watching them go younger and younger – pushing the bar further and further. Karl Lagerfeld is a master at combining new and old to push the house in new directions.
What do you think about the Chanel Spring 2015 haute couture collection?
Do you prefer the classic silhouettes, or do you like the newer girl who is not afraid to bare her midriff?
