Chanel presents its Fall/Winter 2013-14 Haute Couture show
July 26, 2013: Presented by the legendary Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s 2013-14 Fall-Winter Haute Couture collection showcased at the Grand Palais found favour with many.
Set in a deconstructed dilapidated theatre, the stage featured the backdrop of a megapolis with futuristic elements, with which the designer delivered a new vision of the kinetic and unveiled graphic contemporary silhouettes with a play on studied transparencies. Setting a new trend for the world to follow in a palette of white and black with hints of gray, dark blue, beige and light pink, the allure of this season is defined by the play of a juxtaposition of layers.
The dresses, tunics and jackets work together as a classy trio, each silhouette defined by a belt and made from ribbon tweed, suede, tulle or silk. What sounds interesting to us are the skirts and dresses with a 3D effect - embroidered with sequins or metal flowers, tiled with crystals, painted with geometric circles and lines - creating a hypnotic and playful vision.
