Karl Lagerfeld sees any fashion show under his leadership as an opportunity to transform the stage into a portal to latest virtues of beauty. This year was no disappointment either. The creator honored the Chanel Couture 2017 edition with a tasteful parade under a scale model of Eiffel Tower. This setting choice is not accidental, but it is a statement of structure and paragon of beauty.
Chanel Couture 2017 Recreated the Eiffel Tower to Exhibit a Show of Structure and Perfection
Channel managed each year to bring more value to the world of fashion through its costumes and stage constructions as well. The house chose peculiar topics such as grocery store, a city street from Hausmann, underwater realm or aircraft to lend the fashion show a certain creative atmosphere.
This year, Karl Lagerfeld resorted to one of the most romantic landmarks in the world, the Eiffel Tower. Thousands of lovers purchase plane tickets from around the world to enjoy the opportunity of experiencing an evening of romance with their beloved under the protection of this Parisian edifice. Therefore, the Tower fell into the symbolism of love.
Even though the German fashion designer started the project long before the outcome of the presidential campaign in France, he couldn’t help but notice the link between the success of his show and Emmanuel Macron. He believes in the new leader of this beautiful nation.
“It’s all about France. This is the moment for France, with M. Macron as president. I predicted it.”
This Year’s Fall Designs Are Sculptures in Thick Tweeds
The star of this year’s Chanel Couture was the silhouette. Lagerfeld resorted to some classic savvy methods to bring the best out of modern designs such as thick tweeds and a discrete palette of the dark. There were also fathers to adorn only hems and sleeves. Every model’s style was then complemented with a classic boater or a matching bag.
The thick tweeds represented the perfect support for some round shoulders while the hourglass suits contributed to a curvy and bodacious look. There were few elements to distract from the classy costumes. Only feathers intertwined with flowers sparked a feeble light of passion in the perfect structure of the Channel designs.
