Always one to leave us anticipating the seemingly limitless boundaries of his innovation and creativity, Karl Lagerfeld has once again captured a truly unique aesthetic through his Spring 2012 Haute Couture collection for Chanel, highlighting not only his visionary talent, but more importantly his innate ability to conceptualise cohesion, while continuing to explore diversity.
Inside the couture world of Chanel, where the interior of a plane was skilfully and immaculately replicated, Lagerfeld made a bold blue statement, declaring the season's forecast to be an eclectic array of cornflower blue to midnight navy.
Demure met rebellion as slouchy silhouettes of embellishment and luminosity made their way down the light blue carpeted runway, which was of course adorned with the house's infamous double C. The over-exaggeration of a lowered waist line depicted a casual, low-key, challenge of traditional femininity, which transcended seamlessly into the incorporation of conservative hemlines, intricate beading, and of course, the ever so cleaver, modern adaptation and continual reinvention of the iconic tweed suit, ultimately allowing Chanel to successfully create a beautiful fusion of controversially, classic elegance.
