Haute-Couture Continues -

Paris, 25 January - Chanel’s selection of spring couture was one that made us think of pale water colour paintings and Amish clothing. In other words, rather tame and old fashioned. Despite this, we can always rely upon Chanel’s wonderfully classy, knitted skirt and jacket suits. Today we put our faith in master Lagerfeld, as the current Style Director of the company. Let's hope that master Karl is not an indicator of the forthcoming future for Chanel. The interesting fact about Chanel, is that it has it’s own unique clientelle, totally devoted to the label. Results such as the Paris spring/summer 2005 show, will surely not put these committed chiqs off. Sadly we were.

If Chanel was pale water colours, Christian Lacroix definitely made it clear he was not. Strong colours and crumpled details, and a lot of feminine, frilly-hemmed skirts and dresses. The fancy hair-dos were impressive looking, a bit over the top a la usual run way, but that’s what we’re paying for and expecting to see. We love the red dress, pictured as number 12 in the slide show. It’s a gem, isn’t it?

Completely agree with you. Loved the Lacroix show, but boring to the Chanel one, (weird huh.)
