The sea­son’s haute cou­ture col­lec­tion from Chanel

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE ON SATURDAY -

For this au­tumn-win­ter col­lec­tion the cut is de­fined by a sleek, pure sil­hou­ette. Bev­elled or an­gu­lar cut shoul­ders, held with stitches cre­ate a “stand­ing up” ef­fect, fram­ing a flat pro­file with­out any pad­ding. The 3/4 length sleeves an­swer the 7/8 turn-ups hems of the culottes and wide-cut trousers worn over draped leather thigh boots. The tweed jack­ets high­light the waist with pro­trud­ing pock­ets on the hips. Coat dresses and jacket dresses in tweed form games of trompel’oeil. An ethe­real hair­style tied back with a gros­grain headband fur­ther en­hances and blurs these strict and geo­met­ric shapes.

The same re­fine­ment is re­flected in the treat­ment of colour. Au­tum­nal shades – browns, mar­ron glacé, or­anges, beige and greys – are nu­anced and en­riched with a pal­ette of pinks, blacks and whites as block colours or wo­ven in duos.
