Fashion comes Home for SS14

Paris is the home of fashion, this has never been as true as it is now.  I wasn’t sure if anyone could take anymore after the departure of Marc Jacobs from Louis Vuitton was announced, the anticipation for his last show was enough to send even Anna Wintour (well, maybe) into a frenzy!  Yet Chanel was to come and Karl Lagerfeld is not upstaged easily.  For me, this Chanel collection could have been staged in a tip and the clothes would have looked as breathtaking as ever; however in true KL style the Grand Palais was whitewashed and turned into a modern art hanger with over 75 life size pieces of ‘Artwork’ (designed by the one and only) lining the catwalk.  You couldn’t help but think about the ever potent question; is fashion art?  If this man’s creations aren’t worthy of the art world then I don’t know what is.  This collection was one of the best seasons Chanel has had for a while; breathtaking yes but also wearable, it had it all!!  This year Wang took Balenciaga and whipped up something that was noticeably Wang but still oozed Parisien chic with a Balenciaga attitude! Heremes and Dior were both in full bloom with florals leading the way in an oversized print as well as our old friend snakeskin adding an extra kick to trims and accessories; Miu Miu finished off the epic week with a sickly sweet presentation of pastel colours and swinging 60’s pea coats.  Too much to write about all in one, the pictures will do the talking:
