Chanel Goes Retro For Spring 2017 Haute Couture

Karl Lagerfeld is known for creating big spectacles at his Chanel shows. Be it in the form of sets or a greater theme, he spares no detail in his production. For spring 2017 couture, a house of mirrors modeled after Coco Chanel’s iconic mirrored spiral staircase at her 31 Rue Cambon atelier was the setup at Grand Palais. Though elaborate, the set was kept primarily sparse.

The clothes, as always, reflected the backdrop in design. While Karl gave the house’s historic tweed skirt sets new life with buckled belts and pussy-bow blouses, silhouettes harkened back to the glory days of the ’80s.

A nostalgic undertone continued throughout the collection where the ’70s were well represented in sequined tube dresses worn with over-the-knee bedazzled boots and a patent waist belt. A Metallic jacquard pantsuit with a square plunging neckline was a highlight.

Then came the ’50s and ’60s with ruffled babydoll dresses and tea-length gowns with alternating silk and silver paneling. When it came time for the stunning evening looks, the periods fused pairing ’20s-era feathers with ’70s necklines.

Lily-Rose Depp closed the show with a powder pink confection elongated by layers and layers of tulle ruffles.
