presenting the usual set of chanel design signatures; lagerfeld understands the importance of sequential build up when putting on a runway show. the collection started out with clean design lines; we see gold details & light embellishment. it’s was clear from look one that this collection would draw close attention to details & as the set continued the embellishment flourished. an army of black pieces with gold accents were seen at the opening of the set, while color slowly started to trickled as the show progressed. slices of red, use of suede, headbands & golden tweed were seen as the usual chanel faves, sasha pivovarova, freja beha erichsen & baptiste giabiconi all made runway appearances. there was a slight referencing of royal roman style with more of a raw edge. it was loosely country while still holding enough regality through chanel signatures to sustain as a wholesome collection. a very clear direction & very impressive opposition of what was seen this past spring. chanel is an unstoppable force & it’s driven by karl lagerfeld. im pleased to see a strong effort from chanel in the pre-season.
