As usual, Karl Lagerfeld was uncompromising in his vision. The clean and clinical look of most of the collection was exaggerated by the strict white and black palette, ergonomic silhouettes, box pleat detailing to skirts, funnel or mandarin collars and jackets cropped at the ribs. Obi references came through in corseted waistlines and the ubiquitous camellia adorned gauzy organza gowns.
A youthful, 1960s inspired silhouette dominated the neat dress and jacket combinations in purest white. Hemlines sat just above the knee in all but a handful of styles and the shoulder was important, either into a defined squared off shape or in racer-style cutaway details.
