In a pure white setting installed at the Paris's Grand Palais, Karl Lagerfeld showed us a taste of the future with the Chanel Spring/Summer 2014 Couture Collection. To the sound of Sébastien Tellier, the show opened with Cara Delevingne wearing an immaculate white tweed look, while effortlessly running down a flight of stairs. Like her, the free spirited models walked down wearing the most sophisticated pieces, paired with some unusual accessories for a couture collection.
It's all about being unrestricted, but with a certain class. Embellished pearl, tweed and lace sneakers, as well as silver tweed fanny packs and elbow and knee pads were some of the elements that brought a sportswear feel to a collection filled with so many refined, yet practical, two-piece looks and dresses covered with jewels, translucent sequins and light feathers.
It's not about a conformed "couture" beauty anymore. Instead, it's all about the fluidity in a woman's body. Motion is so much a part of our lives that Karl Lagerfeld, being the genius that he is, took the opportunity to exquisitely bring the practical aspect of the sporty look to high end fashion. After this groundbreaking collection in a trend that will definitely take next Summer, it will not be a surprise if the masses start having a different perception about couture.
