Chanel’s Haute Couture fashions are reminiscent of the late 70’s early 80’s this year. Gaucho’s are back, with long jacket-coats, mostly in tweeds – coarse, fine, embellished and appliqued. Midi-length skirts are definitely there, as are squared and boxy shoulders, high sitting collars and drop waists. There is a feel of a Russian Cossack or two, and the thigh high black boot is everywhere. A few sparkles thrown in with some feathers and flounce, there was much overall body coverage to this year’s presentation.
Most of all, I really liked the runway setting within mock designer-seamstress-tailor open rooms, as the fashion designers worked away, while the models strutted by. Very nice!
Enjoy the show!
