Lagerfeld reinterprets the pre-war style within Chanel’s criterion
A pre-war style prevails in the Haute Couture Fall 2018 collection of one of the oldest fashion French maisons. For Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld reinterpreted the past; the 40’s decade made of uncertainties and wrong assertions; the prelude of the dark years.
The iconic bouclé wool is used to conceive tailleurs with pencil-silhouette skirts that are opened in the side, with long splits piped with rich passementeries. The splits are also on the sleeves, conferring them a bell silhouette. The blazers are masculine, somewhat rigid and severe in the linear and sharp cuts, that leaves room to more soft volumes throughout the collection: the skirts shorten, becoming pleated and bell or bubble-silhouette shaped. Georgette is used for evening frilled dresses.The show ended with a wedding outfit, made of a tailleur with a long skirt and an embroidered jacket.
