CHANEL HAUTE COUTURE SPRING SUMMER 2015
The idea for the Chanel set came to Karl Lagerfeld in a dream and in a flash like most ideas comes to him. The set for the Chanel Haute Couture show is like no other. It seems to be from a distant planet, Planet Chanel perhaps. Planet Chanel is a planet where flowers and trees is of the electronic variety. In the show notes it states that it took 3 months for each flower to be made and each has it’s own machine. Upon commencement of the show the electronic garden was doused with Chanel branded water and each flower mechanically blooms. The collection was all about flowers, of course, appliqued, beaded and blooming on slouched skirts that hit below the knee resembling a look from the 20’s complete with tulle headdress and snoods.
