Described as "the new CHANEL" by Karl Lagerfeld, the House’s Haute Couture tweed suit is pared down to the extreme. It appears crosshatched by braiding that dissolves into the fabric, embroidered into tweed and woven with iridescent thread. The boat neck falls, as ever, in a straight line on strong shoulders, but now with a slightly curved line that gives a very slender silhouette a rounded touch; an allusion to the geometric spirit of French gardens.
Flowers, one of the collection’s key themes, bloom in multiple shades and textures on Haute Couture silhouettes designed by Karl Lagerfeld. Constantly seeking innovation, the CHANEL’s Métiers d’art ateliers created hand-painted ceramic flowers that were then added to sequinned dresses.
Entirely black and playing with volumes, this look presents a geometric jacket with a folded leather collar, paired with a feather-embroidered skirt. With its clean, sharp lines, this squared jacket reveals all the precision and know-how of CHANEL’s tailoring ateliers, which specialise in creating structured pieces.
