Chanel Couture Fall/Winter 2013-2014 Collection

The Chanel Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection got unveiled at the Grand Palais on July 3, 2013, during the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, giving us an insight into the future of Chanel, at least in the eyes of Karl Lagerfeld. The legendary designer has already gotten us used to his creative ways of making Chanel shows memorable, and this time he transformed the catwalk into a post-apocalyptic theatre. On the background of ruins, he channeled his wonderful couture creations that were apparently paying a tribute to tweed! “The Old World and the New World” was the title of the Chanel Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection, where the old was the ruins, and the new – the fab outfits.

Most of the fashion designers strive to break the traditional stereotype of couture fashion this season, bringing much more wearable pieces, instead of those high-end glamorous designs that can be donned only to red carpet events or some special evening occasions. Karl Lagerfeld is one of them, who did his best to make the Chanel Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection more practical and ideal for everyday wear too. As a result, we could see tweed almost every single minute: there were tweed dresses and jackets, tweed coats and skirts, accompanied by thigh-high boots and tweed geometric hats.
Overall, the Chanel Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection was strong, strict in every aspect, both as far as clothing was concerned, and the thick brows and the high textured updos demonstrated. Actually, the line was clearly divided into two categories – the tweed suit and the ethereal couture dresses. Mr. Lagerfeld played a lot with the famous billow sleeves, the hipster patent belts, rigid silhouettes, proportions, as well as layering and geometric prints. As for the fabric choices, expect to see lots of sequins, silk, wool, embroidery and ribbons, besides the iconic tweed that was there.

While the traditional black and white combos were the protagonist styles during the Chanel Haute Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 show, there were also occasional greens, pinks and navy blues, which didn’t stray away from the overall theme that much. Metallic touches, tulle, gauze, bold ruffles and lots of volumes were other details that instantly stood out during the show.
No matter you are looking for the best source of inspiration for ethereal evening-wear or want to adopt an iconic style for the fall to come, be sure that the Chanel Couture fall/winter 2013-2014 collection is there to make your days vibrant and fashion-filled!
