Chanel Prêt-à-Porter F/W 2012/13
In Outfits - 7 March 2012 - 82 comments

As many of you probably already know, yesteday I was in Paris and I had the chance to attend the Chanel Fall/Winter 2012/13 Prêt-à-Porter fashion show.

The location chosen was, as always, the beautiful Grand Palais, which Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld decided to turn into a cold crystal fortress for a wrapped-up and layered fall/winter collection that could remember the 1980′s space-age sheen. The clothes picked up the crystal motif too: the heels are made of plexiglass and they’re covered with crystals, just like the tailleurs and even the models’ eyebrows!

The stylist played a lot with the clothes volumes (by wearing skirts over trousers, for example), with the manufacturing of the various fabrics and on the metallic and geometric details. On the other hand, the evening side of this collection can be very structured: we saw feather-embroidered necklines, papier-mache-like dresses in dark autumn-leaf shades, wonderful bodices, some ample skirts and voluminous ruffs.

As always, Karl Lagerfeld did an outstanding job designing what is by far one of the most amazing new collections!!

P.S. I also had the chance to meet Katy Perry!! So exciting!

Come probabilmente già sapete, ieri ero a Parigi ed ho avuto l’occasione di partecipare alla sfilata di Chanel per la presentazione della collezione Prêt-à-Porter autunno/inverno 2012/13.

La splendida location scelta è, come sempre, il Grand Palais, trasformato da Karl Lagerfeld in una sorta di mondo sotterraneo, decorato da grandi cristalli che svettavano verso il soffitto. Il motivo dei cristalli continua anche negli abiti ed accessori stessi: a partire dal tacco delle originalissime scarpe, metà tronchetto e metà mary-jane, per continuare ai tailleur, fino addirittura alle sopracciglia delle modelle.

L’intera collezione gioca molto sui volumi e sulle sovrapposizioni (come ad esempio gli abiti e le gonne portate sopra ai pantaloni, ispirate allo stile new romantic anni ’80), sulla lavorazione dei materiali e sui dettagli metallici e geometrici. Per la sera, a fare da padrone sono le piume ed i corpetti strutturati, da indossare con gonne voluminose ed ampie.

Come al solito, Karl Lagerfeld ha fatto un ottimo lavoro nel disegnare qualcosa di magnifico e di unico.

P.S. Ho anche avuto l’occasione di vedere dal vivo Katy Perry, fantastica!!
