Chanel Fall 2013 Haute Couture – Old & the New World

Titled “The Old World and the New World”, the king of showmanship, Karl Lagerfeld created a dusty, crumbled, full of rubble post apocalyptic theatre set at the Grand Palais in Paris to present his monochromatic Fall 2013 Haute Couture collection.

The collection presented in the background of a futuristic cityscape featured Chanel  tweeds, wools, silk, array of jackets some with metallic embellishment and armour like detailing, embroidered tulle, drop-waisted dresses,  flared skirts, tutu skirts, underskirts, wide belt, coat-dress, origami patterns and generous layering. The pieces were accessorised with thigh high footwear/legging/boots which Karl preferred to call stocking shoes and not boots.

The collection was definitely Karl’s way of embracing modernity and looking towards the future without failing to integrate the craftsmanship and essence of Haute Couture. He kept it exclusive or shall I say Haute exclusive.
