High STAKES

Hong Kong Tatler - - Designer Dossier -

chanel Karl Lager­feld took a gam­ble this sea­son with the clever con­cept of re­pur­pos­ing the Grand Palais into a casino. Celebrity muses and friends of the house par­tic­i­pated in the show by don­ning be­spoke looks and re-edi­tions of Made­moi­selle Chanel’s first fine jew­ellery col­lec­tion, Bi­joux de Dia­mants. Risk was also taken in the cre­ation of the clothes, with di­men­sional el­e­ments such as hand-cut camel­lias on a co­coon coat and the use of 3D-print­ing tech­niques. “The idea was to take the most iconic jacket from the 20th cen­tury and turn it into a 21st-cen­tury ver­sion, which was tech­ni­cally not pos­si­ble at the time it was born,” ex­plains Lager­feld. The fi­nale brought a cream suit and trouser ensem­ble with a tulle train, worn by Kendall Jen­ner, Lager­feld’s muse du jour.
