Allure bon ton and ladylike for a collection of high fashion that Karl Lagerfeld wanted in the sign of elegance, with retro tips that win and seduce for their timeless appeal. The idea of giving up minimal lengths privileging those at the ankle and beyond directs the spring/summer 2019 Haute Couture collection by Chanel not towards a more mature target, but for the amateurs of a fashion that knows how to reinterpret the great classics in a modern way, blowing away the dust of time from them and giving them back the dignity they deserve.
Here then are beautiful tweed suits with a thousand iridescent shades that are accompanied by soft sumptuous marabou hoods, as well as total white cocktail dresses with decorations and embroidery made perfectly by hand by the great artisans of the Parisian maison.
The female silhouette is enhanced by models that wink at the eighties with balloon sleeves and skirts with very low waist that open like a bell. The color palette chosen by Chanel's creative director is decidedly romantic and delicate, for both clothes and accessories, and make-up. Everything is extremely suffused, feminine, ethereal for a High Fashion that knows how to respond to the daily needs of its customers without slipping into easy baroque drifts.
