Paris Haute Couture: Chanel autumn/winter 2011


by Telegraph

imageHighlights from Karl Lagerfeld’s autumn/winter 2011 show for Chanel at Paris Haute Couture Week.

The Chanel show started at ten pm because, rumour has it, Karl Lagerfeld wanted the venue – the vast glass Grand Palais – to be flooded with moonlight. From the first to the last outfit, Lagerfeld played out a story of the skirt suit; beginning in familiar salt-and-pepper tweed and always worn with the same style of schoolgirl-ish hat (even the bride in the finale wore one).

For autumn/winter haute couture 2011/12, Lagerfeld proposed a new shape: nipped in at the waist with a pronounced stiff peplum, rather Forties in style with – wait for it – big shoulders. But it was the skirt, slimmer and increasingly longer, growing from pencil to fishtail, that ultimately held the look together.
