SS 2018


Paris Haute Couture SS 2018, Chanel

A collection full of energy and creativity that spring/summer 2018 that Karl Lagerfeld presented in Paris during the last week of Haute Couture. As always the expectings  was as big as the expectations: King Karl, you know, he's a genius, but it doesn't have to be anything easy to succeed every time to surprise the audience, playing, as everyone is waiting for, in perfect harmony between tradition and experimentation, past and future, but without any quotations, if not about classical tweed and some suits very Coco style.

The result of such a creative effort is the advent on the catwalk and, soon, we look forward to the stage of the world, a creature that is not synthesizing anything that has already been said in the past by the maison, but she is almost an oracle ready to show us a new way to feel haute & hot, females & femme. Beautiful shades choices for lavish coats with three quarter sleeves and suit characterized as always by impeccably tailored jackets fulfilled. Overhead sensual veils and in her eyes a look that sees far, supported by a completely new awareness to embody totally new ideal of femininity.

Yes, finally in the name of true spirit of Gabrielle Chanel, a woman with a very clear vision on the role that the woman should have in the world.

SS 2017


Haute Couture Paris SS 2017, Chanel

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening "rightly said Coco Chanel and her fashion house continues to take the pulse of reality, telling us through lovely dresses if not the world as it is, at least one seen through dark glasses of great Karl Lagerfeld that signs a resolutely modern haute couture spring/summer 2017 collection where tradition and experimentation overlap happily to the point that it could no longer say exactly where one ends and another begins. That's the future of high fashion: look for new ways, new forms of expression. In the mind remains fixed the memory of those memories, but it is clear that for Chanel is time to move away from them and, while bringing in the heart because they are part of the dna of the parisian maison, try to discover a "new America", cast off the mooring ropes and traveling.

And it's a journey into the present in which are already planted the seeds of the future what undertakes Chanel with its hyperbolic creations. Design is the key word of this collection playing with the architecture but, at the end, every creation is perfectly wearable, real for real women. Chanel's Haute Couture, just like used to say Mademoiselle Coco, must exist in the present and has to know tell. But what is the present? We understand the world the way we recover our memories, we reorder them into information and then turn them into stories to justify how we feel about what is happening to us and around us. And Karl Lagerfeld well knows that in one of the most eclectic and versatile collection admired so far but that, for the fact, says the present according to Chanel. It's up to us to be of agreement or not with this vision that has the advantage, as always, to be honest, analytical, deep and never superficial.
