While gorgeous Victoria Secret models paraded down the catwalk at Earls Court in London, Chanel hosted a very different show, full of delicate beauty in Salzburg.
The annual Chanel Metiers d'Art collection always delivers in elegance, poise and beauty. This year, Karl Lagerfeld went all Austrian, choosing the chocolate box town of Salzburg as the perfect location to show his latest designs – the same beautiful town The Sound of Music was filmed in.
As for the collection, it was stunning as always. With a traditional Victorian theme, Lagerfeld sent out boxy jackets decorated in intricate gold frogging, breeches in luxe satin and knee high boots with lace tie ups. Cute Austrian hats with feathers were perched romantically upon models heads while swinging mini dresses in festive red and black looked absolutely lovely.
Oversized knitted jumpers paired with skirts hinted at 70's chic as did the high neck silk shirts, complete with colourful floral patterns around the hems and cuffs. And with supermodels such as Lara Stone, Stella Tennent, Cara Delevingne and Aymeline Valade casually strutting their stuff, this was a show with just the right mix of classic cool and traditional heritage. Fantastic!
