Five favourite looks from Chanel’s spring/summer 2017 couture show in Paris
Feathers, belts and bling were to the fore in Karl Lagerfeld’s latest collection for French fashion house
Kendall Jenner channels flapper-girl flirtatiousness in a plunging neckline in futuristic silver, a panel of gorgeously fluffy ostrich feathers revealing a sheer skirt underneath.
The high-belted silver trouser suit is a stunning highlight of the collection; embellished in gemstones in a starburst pattern, with a slightly flared sleeve, trouser leg and jacket, it somehow retains a very Chanel-coded elegance despite the outrageous amount of bling.
We’re loving the liberal volumes of feather plumes here. The baby-pink ostrich feather sleeves and dress hem bounce along beautifully when the model walks. This flourish paired with the almost abstract simplicity of the textured silver tube dress is a winning combination.
This extreme A-line skirt recalls the 1950s, but it’s the dove grey colour and white feathers delicately lining the hemline, sleeves and neckline which make this outfit so utterly regal. The thick belt is a modern touch on a look that’s dreamy and ethereal.
Seventeen-year-old Lily-Rose Depp donned the finale bridal gown for Chanel’s couture show. The young model is on the way up in the fashion world and there was applause all round as the starlet smiled and walked in this innocent, voluminous pink gown. Dense ruffles made for a huge ball skirt and sleeves, whereas the prim-and-proper buttoned and collared top appropriately sweetened the look for the teen model.
