It is Fashion Week for winter season in Paris. The most prestigious design firms will be presenting their collections for the end of the year. Yesterday, one of the firms that had the supermodels walking the cat-walk wearing their designs was Channel. Models came out of an iceberg, a giant jacket of 20 meters. Karl Lagerfeld changed strategy and summoned all the guests for the Great Palais at 22 hours., when the twilight comes and lampposts are ignited in the City of the Light
This time the house of the camellia has recreated the mythical Place Vendôme in the middle of the famous monument where they present its parades regularly. People got with their mouths wide-open as they were entering through such a dome and was discovering the secret of why the appointment was at night. A pity the illusions of a great spectacle in the clothes were vanishing up to be diluting completely at the end. Unsuccessful collection that of Lagerfeld for Chanel. From the beginning to the end, the pieces seemed like brought in from former seasons; something already seen and, in many cases, niether appetizing at all nor ‘sexy’, and without any essence of elegance.
Too much tweed in its repetitive two-piece suits, bordered and this time with abundances of sheens, measures above the knee. The image falsely rotten in many dresses was not helping either to the concept of elegance, and the excess of sheens in ‘paillettes’ for impossible ‘ total looks ‘ -hat, jacket, skirt and boot to the knee, everything combined – were resembling past Christmas trees.
