Designer Karl Lagerfeld reworked the label’s ubiquitous tweed suit into cap sleeved versions with oversized patterns and long line jackets or matador-style cropped boleros. The Spanish theme continued with full-length ruffled flamenco dresses.
Dresses, jackets and gowns all featured detailing just under the bust, breaking the line of the garments at empire line. Bows were a major motif which lent a My Fair Lady edge to elegant shift dresses and below-the-hip jackets.
Unsurprisingly, black and white formed the mainstay of the collection, with pale grey, baby pink and delicate mauve adding glamour.
Chiffon was key on the ruffled skirts, ultra light tulle lent grace to slim empire line gowns and wool tweed maintained Chanel’s classic signature look.
