Ninety works of art in all its forms are showcased in a temporary gallery beneath the glass-roofed grand palais, heralding the latest art-themed chanel collection. the propositions are endless on the runway, the common threads being the colour and the masterful work on fabrics which only chanel workshops and karl’s talent can produce. on the walls, all the art pieces including some very humorous, have been imagined by karl, referring to the codes of the fashion house. the catwalk exhibits a pink, frayed tweed overcoat, mesh knitwear moulds the silhouette and an unstructured waistcoat proposes a version for the day and a pearly version for the night. it’s all about the attitude as the jacket slips off one shoulder, lace is revealed beneath a flared skirt and knitted socks slide into stilettos. accessories are also on display and there are a range of options; a bag with rigid handles, a backpack and a portfolio. karl works colours like a painter with a rich palette made up of specific shadings, showing that he is a very inspired artist. his make-up is colourful for a disco look. riccardo tisci, katy perry and vanessa paradis seem to appreciate the show!
