I’ve decided I should skip watching any fashion shows except the couture shows, with their very reasonable schedule (a few days in January and July), in Paris, with the finest sewing on the planet. There’s no worry that I will want to buy anything I see since I’ve read only about 100 women in the whole world can afford haute couture clothing. While that statistic should be depressing, I find haute couture anything but. It’s pure inspiration—for the looks, the colors, the design ideas, the narrative.
And did I mention the sewing?
I didn’t like this show as much as I did the last couture show, where all the dresses and jackets were blue and the models walked down an airplane aisle, but when it comes to Chanel I always find at least one thing to love. These were my favorite looks from Uncle Karl this time around.
|Not only beautiful, but comfortable-looking!|
|Love this look, especially the silver tights.|
|Love the color of the dress, the gloves, the snood!|
|I would like to see this pink and silver duster up close.|
|Chanel winter wedding dress, anyone?|
What do you think of these looks?
