God is in the details, so is Karl. Chanel Spring Summer 2018 is about water, and it’s all in the details. And all details are in transparency – that’s where we can find perfection and reflection of absolute purity of new collection.
New collection was taken by international press in very critical way : very technical but not creative, “plastic girls are not in style of Chanel”, and so on. Indeed it is hard to see the amazing details from far and on this speed of marching models.
Chanel silhouette are still Chanel silhouette, with raincoats and plastic Chanel boots. But what you need to see is the details. That’s where the magic of Karl unfolds. Do not miss genius of creativity in perfection of technics and finishing, in rushing writing reviews and having an opinion made by “know-it-all” amatures. Genius and technicality together are so rare in era of copies.
Transparent skirts and transparent bags were created to play with the light. Plastic gloves with small Chanel logos on typical Chanel ornament. There’s no more black and white – all of it is a “game of light reflection on the water”, recreated by Karl.
And as usual Karl Lagerfeld does the shooting of new looks and presents them to public in press release at the show. RUNWAY MAGAZINE model and representative Abigail Lopez Cruz got it covered… with rose petals and love.
