Chanel Fall 2015 Couture Show-Melange of Machine, Human, Technology, and Tradition

Danielle Greene

The finale of the Chanel 2015 Fall Couture Runway show, at first glance, appears quite traditional, almost sedated. When I first watched the show streaming from Chanel.com, I wanted a fresh perspective. So I read nothing about the theme, location, or clothes. After watching it, I was surprised and underwhelmed. I KNEW there was more to it.

So I started reading. and very quickly was not only was I impressed, I was a flutter with excitement and awe. Here are the four most impressive things of this "jackpot" show! 

1. Housing the show in a casino, Lagerfield, in effect, addressed celebrity obsession, the tension between technology and tradition, and high-stakes risk.

2. The jewelry worn by his Cercle Privé (Kirsten Stewart, Julianne Moore, Vanesa Paradis, and more Chanel muses) was part of a full re-issue of “Bijoux de Diamants” from 1932, the only fine jewelry ever created by Coco Chanel.

3. The first 10 looks, skirt suits seemingly made of traditional Chanel boucle were actually a quilted mesh with tweed patterns printed on a 3-D printer in Belgium (ooh la la, madame Coco!). Karl said about these looks, "The interest is that we take the most iconic jackets from the 20th century, and make it in something you couldn’t even imagine then for the 21st century.”

4. There was such range in the looks presented, from faux-traditional skirt suits to over-embellished ball-gowns. An energizing tension lingered throughout with the nods to technology, tradition, restraint, and risk.
