Check out the Flock Of Seagulls hair at
Chanel Haute Couture Fall 2014!
It’s fun, non?
I’m not sure I entirely get it though.
The hair being so angular works with the architectural feel of the collection, but it doesn’t look fabulous/silky/inviting/glossy/healthy.
It makes me think of a 1980’s music video.
The collection itself was also interesting in that it featured a considerable amount of day wear.
Typically we associate couture collections with elaborate evening wear. But billionaire wives no doubt don’t want to be forced to buy their entire day wardrobe off the rack, so Chanel offers them the option of a comprehensive couture collection.
I like the streamlined structure, but some of the collection felt chunky, and when heavy weight shorts were paired with flat, unattractive flipflop footwear looked unflattering.
Or maybe just un-Chanel?
The lines on the jackets were however, superb.
After all – it’s Chanel.
I did enjoy the detailing on slim fit pants
and I love the shiny silver loafers, but somehow they don’t feel like a couture collection? Maybe it’s just the shot, but don’t you think these shoes look like something you’d find at an inexpensive shoe stall at the mall?
But overall the collection was so multi-dimensional,
and leading with those crisp whites,
it also had a regal feel.
Perfect for the couture consumer.
