Punk meets Coco at Karl Lagerfeld’s sumptuously chic Chanel Spring 2014 ready to wear collection at Paris Fashion Week.
There were all the elements of classic Chanel circa Coco herself: “tweed” like material, which wasn’t actual tweed but different materials layered on top of tulle to mimic the iconic Chanel tweed, four and two pocket jackets, oversized jackets and bottoms, black cap-toed shoes, and of course, pastels.
That is, however, where Coco ends and Lagerfeld begins. Being that punk is one of the major trends for ready to wear spring 2014, it isn’t any surprise that there were very distinct punk attributes in the collection. Punk was in the details, accessories and beauty to be exact.
There were CC monogramed fingerless gloves, dark nail polish, dark rimmed eyes and eyebrows surrounded by slashes of bright colors like blue, green, yellow, and red, layers of chunky bracelets and bangles, both square and circular. Slinky tetris-like small messengers along with the classic large rectangular shapes, and large studded totes and backpacks.
There’s only one way to describe Chanel’s color palette this season: rainbow. While neutrals from black, white, and grey were present, they were interspersed with bright pops of color from every hue on the spectrum, bound by lace and translucent textures.
If not the clothes, then the accessories, something will bring every fashionista to swoon over Chanel’s Spring 2014 ready to wear collection.
