Haute couture – the idea that clothing should be made from a high quality material and custom-fit the wearer. For example, shooting out identical T-shirts out of a gun at a sporting event might just be the farthest thing from haute couture. Chanel ran a wonderful fashion show as part of the couture events in Paris.
Some of the pieces in particular highlight the custom-fit aspects of haute couture exceptionally well. Of course, couture represents a painstaking process, but experts will argue that top-drawer fashion demands this kind of dedication.
Does anyone do tweed better than Chanel? Probably not. Coco Chanel loved the soft and sophisticated qualities that embody tweed.
It’s also important to notice some of the more dominating features in this collection. For example, the shin-length boots and the bouquet veils are recurring themes. The flowers in particular match wondrously with the garden in the background.
In fact, you might draw some conclusions about Chanel’s message. That is, maybe fashion should be fresh, beautiful, and natural like a garden. As Coco Chanel once said, “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” The fashion company’s efforts to honor its founder should be applauded.
