CLOSE UP: Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2011
It’s Couture, so the best way to appreciate the clothes is to zoom in to the details and admire the workmanship. The Chanel Haute Couture S/S 11 show was held at Pavillion Cambon Capucines instead of Grand Palais (seems like they prefer a smaller venue for Spring/Summer couture these years). Karl rolled out a delicate, ultra feminine and girlish collection with a soft colour palette and metallics. There are a lot of drop-waist silhouettes and also a number of light flowy looks which are pretty rare at Chanel couture.
