Chanel Spring/Summer Haute Couture

Today, 25th January 2011, MY FAVOURITE-EVER DESIGNER Chanel spring/summer couture fashion show by Karl Lagerfeld, of course I cant take my breath away and it was just beautiful..

Let there be light...
No designer is as primed for that kind of heavenly decree as Karl Lagerfeld, and he heeded the call with a Chanel collection that was positively luminous in its delicacy and sparkle. Now everybody is going to sparks...Dresses that looked spun from gossamer weren't fabric, they were pieces of embroidery. Ten million beads were used in all. The result was literally a cloth of light!!

But light is not only illumination, it's also a lack of heaviness. There was a precise, balletic grace to the shifts, the tops, the fitted jackets, and floating chiffons, all of them built on sequined leggings. And every model walked in a ballet flat. "Just the point of the shoe," Lagerfeld was quick to point out.

It was bound to the ankle by transparent straps, and it completely changed the attitude of the show. All those teenage models who look like ball-breaking vixens in their face paint were suddenly turned back into pretty girls in flat soles and clothes the color of a dawn sky...
"I was sick of all those Eiffel Towers, sick of all those
violent colors," said Lagerfeld.

He dazzlingly wove his antidote to current fashion orthodoxy into the fabric of the house. Artist Marie Laurencin was his inspiration. The pink bouclé suit, the drop-waist dress, the sugary, rough-edged tweeds were fragile where Chanel herself was steely....

And it all went flawlessly smooth and softly romantic... As it was very Chanel's minimalism and simplicity trademark.. and I bet all women can wear this couture or simply say, a wearable couture...
and of course, these are some of my favs, I can't fit 66 outfits in here :)

Lovettes, Khairuz.
