Karl Lagerfeld is continuing on with his painterly mindset for his Chanel Fall/Winter 2014-2015 collection, as presented during Paris Fashion Week Womenswear on March 4, 2014 in Paris, France.
The Chanel Read-to-Wear collection that we can look forward to this autumn celebrates a multicolor palette, yet somehow the pink pieces stand out, and are often rendered into dresses and separates that are embellished with different sized appliqué flower petals. In this Chanel collection, pink is also often paired with pewter.
And then there are the very artsy multicolored pieces from Lagerfeld with painterly brush strokes as previously seen from Lagerfeld and this time set against a black or grey background as if to temper all that playfulness.
Of course, there are plenty of the quintessential Chanel suit in a variety of materials and color combinations…
Among Chanel’s outerwear is a really cute high-necked cropped bolero style fur jacket in pink, orange and white, which looks perfect teamed with the pewter Chanel shoulderbag and sneakers.
More gorgeous metallics as Lagerfeld offers iridescent separates in a holographic material colored pewter, blue, green and purple, as teamed with a variety of looks including skirtsuits and the black and multi knit jacket that has a striated look.
Equally artistic, though not quite so painterly, was the metallic pewter colored basketweave tunic, which was accessorized with heavy chains and a huge padlock!
The Chanel footwear of choice is once again sneakers but this time also rendered as sneaker boots that lace up all the way to the calves and come in colors that match the Fall 2014 perfectly...
Midriff-baring model Cara Delevingne appeared alongside Karl Lagerfeld in a bright bubblegum pink ensemble that had different sized round holes punched out of it, that she topped off with a grey and pink wintercoat, and accessorized with a double chain across her belly, pink gloves and holographic sneakers.
Lagerfeld looked his stylish self in his black and white ensemble with silvertone metal, as seems to be the Chanel Creative Director’s favorite.
Extra points for a brightly colored supermarket style backdrop dubbed the “Chanel Shopping Center” to include aisles of deliciously colored wines with matching labels.
