Chanel Haute Couture SS '17...

Hello lovelies!

Fashion month is upon us again and to be honest, I can't wait for the London portion (Burberry anyone?!) but until then, I've been trying to get caught up with what I missed of the Haute Couture shows a few weeks ago, namely Chanel.


Of course everyone was talking about the amazing finalĂ© look modelled by Lily-Rose Depp.  But what I love most about Chanel Haute Couture is the immense tailoring and the finer details that you simply wouldn't get from a normal runway collection.  I've handpicked my favourite looks (and I've even illustrated one of them) from the show and will discuss them in more detail-but if you get a spare moment, you can watch the full film of the collection here SPOILER ALERT-it's a beauty!!

Look 1

From the off, Look 1 was simple yet striking.  The detail here is in the tailoring of the bouclĂ©, and I loved the pussybow collar, very Karl, very Parisienne!  J'adore!

Look 6

Look 6 was my favourite of the 'suiting' looks.  I love the length of the coat, and the combination of this with a lighter more fluid flowing dress.  The hat is the perfect finishing detail of the ensemble.  I loved it so much I had to sketch it....

...thoughts? Expect more illustrations on my blog over the coming weeks!

Look 40

Look 40 is exceptional elegance at its best.  I absolutely love the finer detail on the jacket and on the trim of the dress; a perfect look for a summer ball or wedding (if only I could afford the hefty pricetag!).

Look 52

Again, it was the elegant embellishments that caught my eye with Look 52 but I also love the shape; perfectly flattering for a small waist.  Absolutely stunning!

Look 65

The final few looks of the show were showstoppers, perfect cocktail party dresses with inspiration from a variety of eras and Look 65 was my favourite of them all!  I love the fluidity of it and the flowing feathers after the slim slip-dress style structure.  Perfect for any red carpet-amazing!

Which looks were your favourites?

Happy fashion month!
