All The Highlights From Day Two Of Paris Couture Week
From Chanel’s dreamy Mediterranean inspired collection to Rami Kadi’s ode to free spirit, Armani Privé oriental visions and Givenchy’s ‘Bleached Canvas’ collection, here are our highlights from day two of Paris Couture Week
Chanel - It was a rare snowy day in Paris and guests to the Chanel Spring/Summer Haute Couture show rushed inside the Grand Palais. The scene inside couldn’t have been more in contrast to the wintry scene outside: A vast Mediterranean garden complete with palm trees and a pool of water surrounded an Italian home. Welcome to the Villa Chanel, a setting illustrating Lagerfeld’s love of the 18th century. The artistic themes of the century are encapsulated into CHANEL’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection in the form of bouquets of pastel pink, green and dreamy sky blue, lots of embroidery, feathers and majestic gold and silver. “It’s a serene, ideal, timeless collection, that’s absolutely now, with new shapes," said Karl Lagerfeld in a statement. Of note was this season’s Chanel bride, the Italian model Vittoria Ceretti, who walked the grounds of Lagerfeld’s villa strutting an embellished silver swimsuit and long white veil. To much surprise, Lagerfeld did not make his usual final appearance due to fatigue.
