Chanel Pre-Fall 2017 was held at the Paris hotel – The Ritz, where Coco Chanel lived from 1937 to 1971.
The and it was as grand as expected from Karl Lagerfeld. The collection was called Métiers d’Art collection. The collection was modern with a twist of reminiscence of the 20s or maybe even 60s. The designer himself said that in his collection he was inspire by the women who’ve come to the Ritz from all over the world:
“…cosmopolitan elegance [and] people from all over the world who’ve come to the Ritz. There were hundreds of dinners in the ’20s and ’30s, where women wore incredible things. But you cannot tell from the collection what decade it is, and I think that is modern, no?”
Models wore beautifully designed square-shoulder jackets, tailored coats, bubble-shaped capes and skinny knit silvery dresses.
Karl Lagerfeld said:
“In those days, even to the ’60s, there were one or two designers who dictated what everyone wore. That is not the case today, when there are thousands of images of fashion available, so anyone can choose to wear what suits her.”
