Lightness runs through the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection and is reflected in the choice of fabrics — pleated georgette, layered chiffon, draped organza — and in the full volumes, set off with a belt or a knotted bow. Transparent effects heighten the impression of fluidity.
The House ambassadors and friends of the House were invited to the Grand Palais in Paris to discover the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection.
Sharp, striking necklines enhance the models' elegant carriage of the head, lengthening their silhouette. Low-cut or topping a tweed jacket or a sheath dress, like a bandeau or triangular in shape, they reveal the neck and shoulders and enhance the feminine look.
Contrasting effects enhance the graphic lines in the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection. Splashes of white in collars or shirt cuffs, pocket flaps and belts, stand out against long draped black velvet looks, echoing CHANEL's two-tone variations. Juxtapositions in plum shades create luminous new combinations.
Tweed, one of CHANEL's signature fabrics, takes on a new flowing silhouette in the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture collection. Wrapped and draped fluidly, sometimes with a slightly iridescent sheen, it translates into long belted dress coats enhanced with ruff collars. A soft and fluid bustier dress comes in a coral orange check.
Featuring soft rounded shoulders and a narrow skirt, the Haute Couture CHANEL tweed suit is revisited in a vibrant orange hue, illuminated with the added sparkle of jewelled buttons. Setting off its fluorescent hue, a raised collar is covered with a mass of flowers and ribbons in pleated organza.
Margot Robbie, Caroline De Maigret and Ayami Nakajo were among the guests attending the Fall-Winter 2019/20 Haute Couture show in Paris on Tuesday.
