We had the honour of viewing the Chanel Couture Collection! It was so exquisite it took our breath away. The craftsmanship and beauty of each piece is so overwhelming and intricate, that once again Karl has outdone himself! He is the Godfather of Couture! The collection was inspired by Le Courbusier who was an architect who is known for his use of concrete in his modern type designs. Karl took it one step further and made handmade concrete beads. He incorporated them in dresses and vests over dresses. They are all hand sewn together with such precision, that they become mini tiles and serve as a super light weight fabrication on the dresses. The fabrics were the coolest part of the collection. He incorporated white neoprene in to the dresses, which had a twist to them. The neoprene was molded instead of seamed together. This is unbelievable..because basically they are all hand molded to keep their form, and sewn with gorgeous baroque jewels all over it. The collection was also inspired by the elements, like fire. He made fitted plastic lace like dresses and mixed it with fiery tweed jackets. This collection was so gorgeous and the best part was that Karl put all the looks with flats with big bows... we can't get enough of Chanel Couture!
