Haute Couture Paris FW 2017-18, Chanel
Triumph of tweed, design and volumes in the last amazing haute couture fall/winter 2017-18 collection by Chanel, signed by Karl Lagerfeld. Egg shapes for coats and waisted jacket combined with wrapping skirts realized in pure silk and long to ankle, so light and coloured. More skinny and rigorous lines for A-line dresses and mini coats with puffed sleeves from which began another sleeve, long and simple.
Sometimes the tweed, presented in many different nuances, has played down such as fabric house's cult overlapping with so many circles multicolor silk on pockets or neck. Iconic and ironic.
Absolutely delicious dresses with flounce skirts, long until the ankle and with wide volumes, so light and fresh, that follow the movements of the feminine silhouette in this collection in which the heritage of the parisian maison is revisited with renewed enthusiasm by Karl Lagerfeld who beats the dealer playing all his Aces in a match with press and customers which is always difficult to play because the name Chanel is a real institution in the world, a sacred name in the fashion world and and every collection touches outdo, adding to this fairy tale started in the 1920s by Gabrielle Chanel always a sentence in addition, unique and original, that allow this story continues to capture the attention of the people.
