Karl Lagerfeld never seize to amaze us. The designer decided this year to present the famous “Metiers D’Art” show of the house Chanel in a very familiar city, Rome, which he first met in 1963 when was designing for Tiziani.
The collection was took place at Cinecittà, the “Hollywood” of Italy, represented a mix of Italian neorealism and French films, the result could not be anything but magical. We saw sexy and naturally unpretentious chic creations comparable of elegance of the French brand. Statement knits were worn as evening wear, while the lace, leather and transparencies played a dominant role in the collection.
Loaded with lingerie detailing and lace, the collection also includes fingerless gloves that Lagerfeld christened as arm stockings. Further explaining about the collection, he added, “It’s like the French girl comes to Rome, with a few little touches inspired by the cardinals. But it’s very Paris. It’s not Rome and alta moda. This has nothing to do with priests.”
