Paris Fashion Week: Chanel Metropolis
Karl Lagerfeld, for Chanel, built ultra elegant frocks out of stiff fabrics. His skirts and sleeves are sticking out in silhouettes: the simple skirts, hourglass dresses and satin column skirts. Karl composed “spaghetti” from frothed tulle frills and sheaves. Designer tried to catch the younger customer, with his short skirts, but he still has enough here for the superannuated customer.
Oh, these Chanel jackets in gunmetal and aluminum tweed! They shimmered with tube-like silver beading, fringing and crystals. Some were bound with 3-D piping to reflect the traditional Chanel trim. Loved the frames around models’ heads.
Knee-skirts were cut bubble-style look cute and a bit childish… but in a good way, Nabokov’s Lolita in high tech surroundings.
a mix of modernist and medieval with overtones of Fritz Lang’s 1927 sci-fi masterpiece, ‘Metropolis’, as the 64-piece collection moved from day to after-dark, with models’ faces framed by “square” halos.”
I absolutely agree with the Telegraph’s blogger Hilary Alexander, who has also attended the German designer Karl Lagerfeld show, and, was also sitted in the front row just like she always is.
