SPRING-SUMMER 2015 HAUTE COUTURE SHOW BY FRANÇOISE-CLAIRE PRODHON

Chanel presented the Spring-Summer 2015 Haute Couture Show within a circular botanical glasshouse erected underneath the dome of the Grand Palais. At the show's opening, a tropical garden blooming with paper flowers revealed the magic of lush, multi-colored vegetation.

It is a collection that Karl Lagerfeld designed using a sumptuous palette of fresh, vibrant colors that were loosely inspired by an extraordinary and generous garden. The first suits to walk set the tone: bright orange, electric blue, pollen yellow and hot pink underscored the modern style of the collection's silhouettes, which were accessorized with sock-like black leather boots and oversized wide-brimmed hats with straw concealed by a veil of black tulle. Cropped tweed jackets with long or three-quarter sleeves were married with low-cut skirts revealing the models' midriff. These skirts, either short and flared, slender and straight, or flowing and twirling, were embellished with skinny belts whose unusual length accompanied the garments' movement for the ultimate finishing touch. Black and white, Chanel's iconic colors, surfaced in the form of graphic, sleek suits. Lively and airy, silk chiffon was used to create a subtle play of layering and transparency, which was masterfully showcased by large belted coats worn over tone-on-tone sets and dresses in black, pink and bright red. Embroideries, origami folds, braided and fringed chiffon, pearls, sequins, material effects and delicate motifs conveyed the full extent of the ateliers' expertise. The countless floral motifs that emphasized the collections' theme enchanted the evening with their magnificence.

Bouquets of organza, leather, tulle, rhodoid and pearls bloomed from skirts, jackets and sleeves while also gracing chiffon mittens, and elegant knit hats were dotted with an array of precious flowers. Poetic and modern, the Chanel flower women incarnated a larger-than-life garden in which Haute Couture rhymed with perfection.
