Chanel Couture AW1415

The theme of the Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Couture Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show, which mixed modernity with baroque elements, was « Le Corbusier goes to Versailles ».

Other Versailles-inspired collections : Chanel by Karl Lagerfeld Resort 2013 (Karl Lagerfeld said that the theme of this collection, presented at Versailles, was « Versailles in a Socialist France »), LaQuan Smith Spring/Summer 2011 (this collection was influenced by Marie Antoinette and Versailles), Maxime Simoëns Couture Spring/Summer 2011 (this show, titled « This, Madame, is Versailles », was inspired by Sofia Coppola’s « Marie Antoinette »), Thakoon Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (this collection was based on the similarities between the costumes worn at Versailles and the Masai outfits).

To read about other Le Corbusier-influenced collections, search for the « Le Corbusier » post that I have published on June 22, 2014.

      Thank you for another great comment ! It makes me think of Chanel’s “Bleu” (“Blue”) hit perfume for men : who knows, maybe that Chanel’s next fragrance will be named “Rouge” (“Red”), after your comment ! XXX
