Chanel Haute Couture fall/winter 2016
«Behind the girls in the show, there are 200 more who make what they wear—that’s quite a lot, no?—and I thought we should show them to the public too», — said Karl Lagerfeld. The main idea for the Chanel fashion show was those most famous shops on the Rue Cambon. Designer suffered in the exhibition hall of the Grand Palais tables, patterns, sewing machines, sketches, fabric swatches, moodboards, accessories and seamstress themselves. Seamstresses, never left work during the show, models dressed directly on the podium, and some of the looks were finished by Karl Lagerfeld right before the guests.
The collection consisted of the main things of the Fashion House — tweed suits, jackets and variations on the theme of the little black dress. Tweed all sorts of colors, decorations of feathers, embroidery and ruffles adorned costumes-two. Fitted jackets with expressive line of the shoulders combined with Lagelfeld’s favorite black mitts. The little black dress has got a maxi-length and slinky silhouette, huge hem and collar of feathers, even rich embroidery and tulle inserts. By tradition, the show ended with a wedding dress, this time designer presented pantsuit powdery shade with a long train of feathers.
