Chanel Haute Couture London Fashion Week Aw15
In interesting couture facts, there’s one jacket here, the jacket from look 56, a pale pinky confection, shorter in length and short sleeved, which is covered in 110,000 linen sequins, that took 700 hours to create. No wonder it’s short sleeved, imagine how long two full sleeves would take. Anyway, apparently the collection came to Karl Lagerfeld in a flash and now just happens to be in London for a flash visit. It’s amazing seeing couture close up, as even when you see it on a runway, you can never really see it. It needs to be touched to be believed. Or, as we overheard in the boutique, “I’m not that way inclined but I’d quite like to penetrate some of it.
