Chanel Haute Couture AW 16-17...

Hello lovelies!

Today's post is all about the fabulous Chanel Haute Couture AW'16-17 show which recently took place at the Grand Palais, Paris.  As you know from previous posts, I'm always incredibly excited to talk about Chanel-the shows are always breathtaking; but this seasons was just a little bit special.  Imagine stepping into 31 Rue Cambon, and working up through the floors until you are greeted by both Mr Lagerfeld and his fabulous team of ateliers and you'll come to close to the theme of this season's show.  That's right, we get a preview of the sewing room and the process of the creation of Haute Couture from the initial sketch to the execution of the outfit on the runway.  When I visited Paris a couple of years ago and went on a pilgrimage to the amazing Rue Cambon store, I was so excited to think that Karl and his amazing team could've been constructing those amazing Chanel tweeds right above my head.

A journey into the sewing room at the Chanel Haute Couture show

The mood of the show, from the music to the make-up felt very sixties inspired.  Black eyeliner creating doll-like eyes and hair done up in a pretty bows, the models looked flawless.  And the clothes felt very wearable without deterring away from the detail that makes a Chanel Haute Couture show so special.

Look 71-Edie Campbell closed the show with this beautiful, yet slightly outrageous bridal piece, look at the detail in the jacket and train!

Karl Lagerfeld often speaks amorously about his amazing team of ateliers, and what better way to thank them then to feature them in the presentation and allow them see to their beautiful creations make their public debut.  Many credit the designer with the work, but without good execution of ideas from the team, nothing would be possible and I think this collection was Lagerfeld's way of highlighting that.
