Chanel’s woods of wonder

Karl Lagerfeld presents a collection of such contemporary elegance which is destined to be timeless

The Grand Palais in Paris was transformed into a dense, imaginary forest: the forest of wonders, created by Chanel to present the next Autumn / Winter Collection 2018/2019.

In an era in which fashion mixes day / evening, masculine / feminine, seasons (it is difficult to identify a collection by just viewing the fabrics, length of sleeves and density of clothes), Karl Lagerfeld proudly presents a Winter collection, full of bon-ton and femininity.

The foliage theme, chosen from the majestic scenography, prints itself onto suits, jackets and coats, like jacquard onto dresses and woolen sweaters, mixed with the signature tweed and the iconic pearls, bows and lace-up shoes.

Metallic touches are given to the high boots, the cut gloves and in some accessories, are mixed with ecological feathers and furs, now unstoppable trends.

Beautiful hairstyles, with vertical volumes which further enhance the height of the models: “A home-made effect obtained by maintaining opaque and slightly gritty textures – explains Mauro Galzignato, Director of Kemon Collections -. Chanel, which has always been the height of glamour, has approached the street concept with style, keeping the hairstyles to bed-hair stylism. ”

A collection, as always, of such contemporary elegance that it has already become timeless.
