For most people, including yours truly, haute couture shows are pure fantasy – dream confections worn by beautiful people at magical locations. And having been lucky to see and touch CHANEL Haute Couture pieces in person, I can attest to the impeccable attention to detail, use of innovative materials, and the overall intricacy and luxury of haute couture creations. Which is why after looking at photos of the latest CHANEL Haute Couture collection, I was dying to see what those pieces looked like in person, in motion, and up close, because even in photos, my heart was skipping a beat. Gowns with stunning beaded high-collars, Victorian lace collars paired with puff sleeves, bows, sequins, feathers, and chiffon, oh my! Set against a very realistic backdrop of the Seine boardwalk, the attendees were treated to the chicest Parisian riverside stroll ever, complete with a CHANEL-clad boquiniste, feathered and sequined ankle booties, and bang-heavy hairdos that I’m definitely going to try and replicate for the next gala I attend.
