Karl Largerfeld is the man of KARL LAGERFELD, as well as head designer and creative director of CHANEL and FENDI. He is a man who fronts headlines often and is never shy of a little controversy; but let us not forget his talents. Here, i take a look back at the SS15 show.
“They’re all pieces everyone can play with. No ’60s, no ’70s, no whatever, more mode de vie than mode.”- Karl Lagerfeld
“Karl Lagerfeld stages a feminist revolution at Chanel SS15. Models turned freedom fighters with protest signs reading ‘Ladies First’ and ‘Feminist But Feminine’”- dazeddigital.com
“Models came out en masse, alone or in twos and threes chatting as though they were out for a casual Saturday stroll. The clothes they wore felt like their own, which might have something to do with the familiarity of them. It felt like a heritage collection, exactly the sort of clothes that Chanel’s moneyed customers come to this house for. There were countless interpretations of tweedy suits every one as fabulous as the next whether they were rendered into flared trousers or micro minis; splashy painterly florals over silks, kicky box-pleated skirts, sometimes layered over narrow black trousers; and mosaic cocktail dresses made up of rectangular pewter plastic tablets, arranged like bricks, which echoed back to the architecture of the show’s surroundings.”- Vogue.co.uk
