CHANEL Fall 2013 Couture | Behind The Scenes

"I wanted something, you know, what's like a transition between the old world and the new world." Karl Lagerfeld for CHANEL Fall/Winter 2013/14 Haute Couture
From the washed and crumpled luxe silk failles to the woven and embroidered fabrics so elaborately built up that they resembled multimedia artworks.

“It’s inspired by kinetic art,” Karl Lagerfeld of this show that was multilayered conceptually, and literally. This meant not only layered garments boxy, tweedy day suits worn with broad hip-slung belts and with another band of suede underskirt showing several inches below the skirt hem, matched to the second-skin “stocking” boots (literally held up with old-fashioned garter belts), or thickly beaded miniskirts worn over ankle-length dresses. It also spoke to the subtle layering of fabrics, translucent tulle and organza, and embroideries of delicate tiny beads, like drifts of driving rain that created mesmerizing optical illusions.
