The needle of the scale
If you don't know what we're on about, check out what sensation Dior came up with this time. If we want to talk about pomposity and original techniques, the needle of the scale is most definitely leaning towards Dior. But enough criticism for now! Let's take a look at what Chanel did well this time and what makes this year's Haute Couture collection so unique.
The fantastic four
First of all, we have to point out four luxury models, which really took our breath away with their precise workmanship, choice of material, cut or color. If the whole collection carried in this spirit, and Chanel threw in an inventive audiovisual campaign rather than just a few spins and dances in a minute and a half long video, it would have been awesome. As it is, there's a big BUT hanging in the air...
One piece we were definitely pleased with are the innovative high-heeled shoes with lacing, which will brighten up your every outfit. We enjoy all the variations available: classic black, soft cream and playful peach. This is simply a hit in the bull's eye and, slowly but surely, we are making room for these masterpieces in our shoe cabinet.
A Knight's Tale? Never again!
Believe it or not, with this, we've reached the end of the list of Chanel's qualities represented in this collection. Yes, we are just as shocked as you are, and we'd like to recommend Virginia Viard to go through the brand's archives or check out her work from a few seasons back, draw some inspiration and, in the future, give Chanel models the uniqueness that makes them what they are again. And if we can have one last wish, we'd like these models that strongly resemble the costumes from the movie "A Knight's Tale" to be gone forever...
