Chanel spring summer 2015 ready to wear

The Spring-Summer 2015 ready-to-wear show transported us to a typical Parisian boulevard miraculously erected under the glass dome of the Grand Palais, where 80 models casually strolled past the “boulevard Chanel’s” facades while donning the collection’s myriad looks.

The collection is decidedly optimistic and rich with a variety of propositions that Karl Lagerfeld used to set the tone right from the start: these Chanel women are free-spirited and daring; they progress far beyond mere social norms; they are independent, modern and active, in the very image of Gabrielle Chanel. Firmly rooted in their day and age, they walk the streets of major cities with long, confident strides.

With their tweed pantsuits accessorised by vibrant silk neckties, these professional women are a perfect blend of masculine and feminine. Their elegant, comfortable style is inspired by menswear with double-breasted blazers and boxy jackets, cuffed wide-leg trousers and flat boots. The base remained feminine however, through a palette of vibrant colors (orange, pink, purple, blue, green) and flamboyant prints (florals, watercolor prints) interpreted on blouses, neckties and scarves, as well as boots and loafers.

Chanel‘s iconic colors of black, white and navy served as the foundation of this easy-to-wear wardrobe. The whole collection is a play on proportions, layering and transparency. The collection’s accessories added a whimsical, humorous twist to its message of freedom: clutches were stamped with messages like “Féministe mais Féminine” and “Make Fashion not War.”
