This february, I had the opportunity once again to visit the Chanel showroom in New York during Fashion Week, for a private viewing of their latest Haute Couture collection. The famous words uttered by Miranda Priestly –Meryl Streep’s character in The Devil Wears Prada– resonated in my mind; “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking”. Groundbreaking indeed my friends and not sarcastically at all. If there is anyone that can reinvent the proverbial fashion wheel, it’s Karl Lagerfeld. The man’s imagination knows no bounds, and the artisans and craftsmen behind every painstaking hour of work required to complete this collection are deities in my book; what they created is divine and otherworldly.
Photography by me.
Thanks to Chanel for the invitation.
