After such a crazy month, fashion month is coming to an end in Paris. I want to introduce you to my first designer review! On the first Wednesday of every month I will talk about brands and designers I’m very passionate about. Therefore with no further delay, I would like to start with Chanel.
Chanel House has always been know for their timeless designs. By dressing women in suits and little black dresses, always revolutionising fashion ahead of their time. Coco Chanel opened her first store in 1910 in Paris. The house is well known for the mirrored staircase, which multiply thousand times her designs when exhibiting her work, while she watched from the top.
Nowadays, Chanel’s creative director is no other than Karl Lagerfeld. I can’t remember ever being so exited than to be surprised each and every time he tries (and succeeds) anything new. Since 1980, when Lagerfeld resurrected Chanel he has been reinventing non-stop the brand. In an interview he said, “What I enjoy most is doing something I’ve never done before.” We have all seen him transforming the Grand Palais into a supermarket, a casino or as in the latest show, an airport! He know the way to make ua all wonder what he will display for AW16.
Here is a recollection of my favourite looks!
