CHANEL ss15 PFW
KARL (always) does it again. CHANEL ss15 brought the house down with multi colors, DUOs walking fiercely. Girls unite holding the “make fashion not war” signs and “We Can Match The Machos!” in Karl Lagerfeld’s feminist mock protest read at the end of his Summer|Spring 2015 collection.
Multicolored tweed suits, silk floral prints, and these amazing splashy paint boots stole the show when debuted by the likes of Cara Delevingne, Binx Walton, Joan Smalls, Kendall Jenner, Daphne Groeneveld, and even Gisele Bunchden joining. CHANEL Karl’s latest collection left these lovely ladies looking even better than the machos.
Silhouettes remained masculine with sharp shoulders, straight, narrow pant legs, and boxy dresses. What’s nice about this collection is it seems Karl Lagerfeld’s inspiration was original Chanel. Coco Chanel was not afraid to dress in a more masculine manner, and was one of the first designers to play around with silhouettes and textiles that were previously specific to men’s clothing.
This checkpoint in Chanel’s fashion history plus the recent landmark events in modern day feminism this week (See: Emma Watson) made Karl’s collection a success at Paris Fashion Week. To top it all off, the models took to the streets after the show in a faux demonstration. Megaphones in hand, Cara and Gisele lead the way as the group of beautiful women held up signs in favor of a more “Ladies First!” societal outlook.
