Marie Laurencin

27 May

Chanel Couture SS11























The palette of the Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Couture Spring/Summer 2011 Show was based on Marie Laurencin’s watercolors (in 1923, the French artist painted Coco Chanel’s portrait).

Other Marie Laurencin-inspired shows : Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Spring/Summer 2009 (this collection was influenced by a grayish portrait by Marie Laurencin), Christian Lacroix Spring/Summer 2008 (some pieces paid tribute to Marie Laurencin’s oeuvre).

      Thank you so much ! Yes, I also truly adore the sequined detail of this magnificent dress ! As you do, I think that “Vogue” is a fabulous magazine (my favorite editions are “Vogue Paris”, “British Vogue” and, of course, American “Vogue” !). Have a fabulous day ! Mayann

    we love that the fabric shimmers and seems to spread fairy dust as gorgeous Stella walks in it!
    Only Karl could make a hippy silhouette so painfully luxe!!
