Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Fall/Winter 2014 Haute Couture collection recently debuted at Paris Couture Fashion Week to rave reviews. The new collection was one of the chicest yet from the brand and did a unique paring of Marie Antoinette and the 80s perfectly. Boasting everything from jeweled flower embroideries on cocktail dresses in all the shades of pink and red to moulded white gowns, there was a distinct touch of Versailles in every piece of the voluptuous and motif-filled Chanel Fall/Winter 2014 Haute Couture collection.
Paying homage to influential architect Le Corbusier, Lagerfeld did a beautiful job fusing opulent luxury with understated demureness. Focusing mainly on shape and structure, the new collection is filled with versatile silhouettes that range from nipped at the waist to full, A-line skirts.
