Chanel Couture Collection

Karl Lagerfeld impressed the crowd as usual with his ability to put together a brilliant collection. This year, his entire focus was on tracing the body line form shoulder to ankle, he called it "High Profile" (Sarah Mower). He wanted to elgongate women on the move, believing that it gave them the image of impowerment.

"The concept gave a linear dynamic to clothes that employed every conceivable device for piling interest into the place where side seams ought to be. In the opening series of narrow, tuniclike coat-dresses, Lagerfeld used strips of leather, moving into feather and bold tracings of pearl. Then, as he progressed into evening, there were glimpses of sequined embroidery or rills of georgette fluttering from the sides of numerous black lace, ribbon, and chiffon dresses. Tailored hunting jackets with flying peplums in back contributed to the overall sense of forward motion, as did the finale gowns, some trailing airborne capes in their wake. All this was underscored by the image of impossibly elongated women on the move, striding along in leather leggings, heads clad in abstracted hoods or futuristic feathered earmuffs" (Sarah Mower).

Lagerfield ultimetly had an incredible showing, and has continued to uphold his household name. He constantly amazes us with his unique ideas and will continue to do so in the future.
