Paris Fashion Week: Chanel

    Austerity has been a bit of a buzzword around the spring 10 collections with the most visible proponent, the mini-dress, acting as a symbol of these leaner times. Leaner how, you may ask. Well, it’s all down to the dinky proportions, cut as they are with relatively little fabric. The mini is a perfect totem too for all those party-hardened girls who refuse to stop having fun just because we’re caught in the middle of an economic calamity. But back to Chanel and design honcho Karl Lagerfeld, who approached these supposedly more humble times with an ironic approach, taking Chanel’s high-glamour customer for a weekend in the country.

    Set in a dramatic make-believe barn, next season’s Chanel girls were paraded in an inexhaustible assortment of boucle tailoring in soft creamy shades, drop-waist dresses with rough edges, and heavily textured knits. Puffy-hemmed shirt dresses with gathered waists and lace frilled puff-sleeved dresses added to the country vibe which also had smocky shapes in lace and Broderie Anglaise, as well as flouncy floral print dresses made up of tightly packed pleats and ruffled banding.
