Sparkle and Eleganza at Chanel Couture SS17

If there's one thing we've learned in our years of stalking and appreciating Paris Haute Couture Week, it's that the Chanel is sure to be a magical show-stopper, and this season did not disappoint. Perhaps one of the most elegant and feminine show in years, passing the usual theme driven, immersive style we've been used to. This time, the spotlight was on the clothes. And boy did they shine bright.

Complimented by an Art Deco style mirrored runway with a kaleidoscope cylinder, it was a stunning way to see every inch of the outfit. From classic Chanel tailoring - with newly featured strong shoulders - complimenting the cinched waists and rounded hips in all colours of a sorbet rainbow. If I was a betting girl, I think this is how Karl does the 80's, and it's the chicest it's ever looked.

As we went into the eveningwear, things got very sleek and neutral, with shades of silver, white and grey, topped with pink and mint. Organza, taffeta, duchess satin, embroidery, lace, jacquard, tulle and all those feathers, luxuriously having it all. From column shapes to dramatic, flirty A line skirts, the feminine feels were everywhere. I'll take one of the feather trimmed sparkly confectionary creations to go please.
