CHANEL PARIS-ÉDIMBOURG METIERS d'ART 2012/13
Yay for the Scots! Their rich heritage and culture has inspired one of Chanel's most dynamic and lively shows thus far. And you guys are in for a fashion orgasm.
Held at the Linlithgow Palace in Scotland last 4th of December, the Kaiser Lagerfeld crafted a collection that was brought to life by expert pairing and craftsmanship of varied textures, patterns, fabrics and color. You'll see a lot of Chanel’s classic designs revitalized with a fresh and modern feel, inspired by Scottish patterns. Over and above that, the Scottish inspiration is prevalent all throughout - from the awe-inspiring runway [and freezing temperatures! I pity the audience lol] and of course the story that the runway crafted from start to finish. The collection celebrated Scotland’s “romantic and barbarian” spirit whilst staying true to Madam Coco’s philosophy. What was interesting about the show was apart from glorifying tweeds and knits, it seems that there was an “anti-stiletto” theme to its entirety. Further to these, the artful mixing of wools, tartan and plaids with lace and chiffon, created an awe-inspiring juxtaposition of the past and the present. You'll also notice that there won't be a lack of embellishments in this collection and they are so crucial to making everything come to life. All in all, making the collection of the most beautiful & gritty in the history of Chanel!
