Best of Couture: Chanel s/s 12
Hosted in an air Chanel Jumbo Jet with passenger seats facing the runway, it was a contrast to Karl’s underwater themed a/w 12 collection as we were rocketed into the night sky for a traditional Coco joyride.
Bright lights with grey-hued daywear shifted to transparent chiffon and full length wool dresses with boucle jackets & embellished jewelled buttons; finishing with sequinned and embroidered cocktail dresses as the lights dimmed – signalling looks for the evening.
Hems dropping to mid-ankle length, drop waists, and simple shades made for an extremely wearable yet undeniably opulent and luxurious – a tradition of couture which is never missed at the house of Chanel.
PS – those three bar ankle strap courts are on the top of my couture wish list!
