Paris Haute Couture SS15: Chanel
With 300 engines under the guest's feet, powering Chanel's digital blossoming runway installation at today's Haute Couture show, Karl Lagerfeld took flower power to a whole new level.
The breathtaking show that took place at Paris' Grand Palais opened with not only a set of colourful and highly-embellished Chanel ensembles but with a dramatic paper-made jungle created in the middle of the runway blossoming – with the once grey digital flowers unveiling their true colours (the same colours used in the SS15 collection).
The runway was a masterpiece in itself, as the jungle-like installation took almost a year to create, providing an inspiring backdrop for the bold and tropical Haute Couture pieces. Silhouettes were simple and tailored as unique separates featured deep-rooted embellishment, from fluffy tulle flowers to sparkling embroidery.
Model Kendall Jenner strode down the catwalk in a white maxi skirt with stitched 3D blossoms and a sheer black crop top, while Lindsey Wixson sported a classic cropped jacket featuring an exaggerated collar and seams paired with a low-waisted pencil skirt.
After a myriad of stunning mod-meet-bohemian-style looks, the Chanel bride floated out in a white and pink gown featuring a flower covered train and hat – followed by four faithful gardeners (personally selected by Karl himself) holding tropical bouquets: Leaving us all wanting to say "I do."
