CHANEL Haute Couture Spring 2018 collection was presented at the Grand Palais in Paris earlier today, and this time there were no rockets or supermarkets in sight, just a tranquil French garden and a dream-like collection of frothy gowns, iconic tweeds, sequins, pleats, feathers, and exquisite floral embellishments. And while the soft shades of pink, full skirts, and feathers were certainly ultra-feminine, the exaggerated shoulders on tweed jackets and calf-length booties added some edge. As always with haute couture, zooming into photos is essential for full appreciation of the garments – the level of detail that goes into these designs is exceptional. And since the Oscar nominations were announced today, I am now dreaming about the incredibly talented Best Actress Nominee Saoirse Ronan in CHANEL Haute Couture on the red carpet in March. She always looks great, but I think the marriage of Saoirse and CHANEL would be divine. Make it happen, fashion gods!
Of course, as someone who’s not an Oscar-nominated actor, I can only dream about owning one of these stunning creations, but I truly hope that CHANEL makes a retail version of those incredible tweed boots with transparent heels – I need them in my life so badly!
