Runway: Chanel Pre-Spring/Summer 2014

Monday, 13 May 2013

Chanel's Pre-Spring/Summer 2014 collection took place in a former nutmeg plantation in the heart of Singapore - A collection influenced heavily by its Asian surroundings however it also went to the heart of the houses heritage especially referencing highly to Gabrielle Chanel's first store in Deauville (The 100th anniversary celebration can be seen here Once Upon A Time a Film by Karl Lagerfeld) Concrete floors and stark white walls set the mood for a romantic charm within the show.  

Two coordinating pieces opened the show - dresses over wide leg trousers, then followed by British sportsmanship that was 
completed with bats, v-neck jumpers and shin guards. Setting the tone for the following looks that waltzed down the catwalk. 
The likes of lace playsuits, delicately pleated silk dresses, dual length skirts all 
glided down the runway - 50's music played subtly in the background adding not only 
a even more holiday-esqe feeling but such an ease to the new silhouettes which
were relaxed in ways but of course highly luxe, elegant and rendered from white leathers and tulle. 
A nod to Chanel's history was plentiful throughout this collection however attentively designed in a subtle manner by Lagerfeld. A combination of lady like elegance with Lad like tailoring, menswear inspired fabric all reminiscent of Boy Capel. Pearls were plentiful, draped around the neck, wrapped around the waist and layered around the wrist. Eveningwear came in the likes of sequins, exaggerated appliqués, tulle and latex looking lace.

Yet again I am in love, Chanel never fails to leave me impressed and in sheer awe.
