Among the cut-outs, fringe, and lace, the detail that stood out the most were the lofty feathers that decorated a multitude of pieces. Calling the feathers a "response to the fake fur used in the previous season," Karl made the feathers feel glamourous and avant-garde. The clothes were charming and elegant and came in a wide variety of styles, from the cascading black feathers to vibrant ostrich feathers shown in apricot and pale blue, ensuring the viewer could never get bored.
Take a look at the collection:
The collection is clearly inspired by Last Year at Marienbad, which is a significant film in Chanel's history. Coco Chanel costumed French actress, Delphine Seyrig, for the movie and below you can see how Lagerfeld drew from her original creations.
Qi New York loves Chanel's latest collection and agrees with Lagerfeld--right now, feathers just feel right.
