In a departure from recent Chanel fashion shows, the brand’s recent spring/summer couture 2017 line had less emphasis on the theme and more on the clothing. Glamour was undeniably the name of the game, with retro inspired skirt-suits, heavy ruffles, sequins and feathers. The mood was elegant and restrained, captured perfectly by the set consisting of mirrored floors and walls.
The set seemed to be inspired by the brand’s flagship Rue Cambon store.
Skirt suits were the first order of business, complete with smart pumps and hats.
There was also plenty of the brand’s signature tweed in the form of separates and outerwear.
But business gave way to party plans soon enough with the arrival of shinny sequinned dresses.
Lily Rose Depp sported a heavily ruffled pink confection which also reflected the pastel color theme.
This mint green and silver peekaboo dress was a standout and we can’t wait to see it on a fiery redhead like Emma Stone or Amy Adams.
Bella Hadid was one of the famous faces on the runway sporting a dark evening dress.
In a more traditional but no less alluring silver and feather gown was Kendall Jenner.
Having recently watched the Natalie Portman starrer Jackie, this collection with its sweet pastels and demure skirts feels like a tribute to the former first lady, but with a dash of evening glamor. But if couture is supposed to be all about pushing the boundaries of fashion, then this collection was pretty tame.
