The show

Spring-Summer 2010 Ready-To-Wear

The Chanel Summer 2010 is one of bucolic and rural light-heartedness. For this cheerful fashion show, Karl Lagerfeld installed a reproduction of a farm scene complete with barn, haystacks, and flower garlands in the heart of the Grand Palais, using Fragonard’s artworks and Marie Antoinette’s Hamlet at Versailles as his inspiration. In this idyllic décor, the Chanel models appeared in step with the joyous rhythms of this country farandole, which ended in a surprise concert by Lily Allen, who appeared in a flowery cabin from underneath the set.

The dusted colors of this summer collection are like those of the show’s atmosphere, made up of natural whites, creams, beiges, but also pink, coral and pale orange. The dresses have transparent elements, muslin veils, and pleats which heighten the waistline and enhance the silhouette. Leather clogs with studded heels and small baskets adorned with flowers and ones made of wicker and hessian accessorize the silhouettes.

COCO CHANEL'S APARTMENT
WHEAT, A SYMBOL OF PROSPERITY

Wheat is a recurrent theme in Mademoiselle Chanel’s apartment. She made it her lucky charm, like a subtle metaphor for creativity that never ends…

In each room of the apartment, wheat makes an appearance: as a brass bouquet, in gilded wood on the sitting-room fireplace, as gilded sheaves for a table leg, or even as a simple blade painted for Mademoiselle by Dali.

Karl Lagerfeld in turn “sprinkled” ears of wheat throughout his Spring-Summer 2010 collection: showers of golden wheat ears were embroidered or cropped up on chain belts, bracelets, headbands, necklaces and shirt fronts.
