On July 3, 2012 Chanel presented a vintage-inspired haute couture collection at the Grand Palais in Paris. “I wanted a modern elegance, casual”, said Karl Lagerfeld, who titled his show “New Vintage“.
A soft grey, pale pink, taupe and ivory palette, classic shapes, glittering faux tweed, camellia adorned dresses, patchwork prints, crystal embroidered garments, skirts cut a hand above the knee, metallic sleeves and belts, elongated silhouettes, ruffles and small powder puffs of feathers dominated the collection.
American model Lindsey Wixson,Â known for her “bee-stung lips”, closed the show in a huge bridal couture gown with a feather skirt.
Diane Kruger, models Laetitia Casta and Milla Jovovich, InÃ¨s de la Fressange, Lou Doillon, Sofia Coppola, Alexa Chung, Leslie Mann and Michelle Harper were some of the VIPs who attended the fashion show.
