Chanel - Collection spring/summer 2015 in Paris

At the Grand Palais, Chanel brings the show to the street. A grand facade of reconstituted Parisian buildings sets the scene, with groups of girls that take to the pavement in flat shoes, and colourful printed outfits. Karl proposes a multitude of suits, dresses, featuring watercolour motifs created by the designer, monochrome and pastel tones follow, to make way for the black and white pieces, all with a range of white shirts each made differently with frills and lace. Gisèle Bundchen in a knitted striped dress announces the theme with bankers’ suits. The graphic designs inspired from cobblestones cover some of the transparent pieces and embroidery decorates a number of short jackets. This season there are no dresses for the red carpet but instead fashion well-suited for daily life. Protesting the difference, which Karl Lagerfeld loves to do, and he surprises again, playing with and giving the touch of Chanel fashion which is always one step ahead. Interview: Karl Lagerfeld: After having done the supermarket, we find ourselves on the street, but you won’t find any cars here. I didn’t want any parked cars, because when there are protests, there aren’t any cars…but I found that funny and I think that goes well with the spirit of Chanel. Today there isn’t just one style, there isn’t just one fashion, it’s about several things. That has always been part of the spirit of Chanel and there are lots of propositions, it’s up to you to decide. It’s more about banker pinstripes because for this type of march it’s better, and then I wanted to avoid the « red carpet » , with the slinky evening dresses that we do for the Métiers d’Art show and the couture line, but which we didn’t need here.
