Chanel S/S 2013 Paris Grand Palais

Were you mesmerized as I was by the Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2013 collection shows? For Chanel’s S/S 2013 haute couture line, Lagerfeld showcased gothic gowns in a garden-like setting.

Karl Lagerfeld’s vast array of styles maintained a cohesive relevance at the intimate couture show in an amphitheater within the Grand Palais in Paris today. “It was beautiful, no?” Karl Lagerfeld said following his haute couture show today. “I saw it in my dream, made a sketch, and then handed it over. People have to make those things. Dress-making is a job. And it worked.” 

His vision translated into a fabulous collection of light and lovely clothes spanning myriad eras of time: 60s inspired tube dresses, 16th century sleeves, 50s inspired bracelet length sleeves, a Miss Haversham dress. 

The "traditional" wedding finale consisted of two brides, a riposte to those who recently marched in Paris or President Obamas inaugural reference to equality of same-sex union? 

Chanel injected pure drama and wonderment into the smoky eye and up do at its haute couture show this morning. Artists, under the direction of Peter Philips, Chanel's global creative director for makeup, smudged back shadow giving the deep, dark smoky eye a dramatic, if not eerie feeling, with winged shapes creating a haunting look.
