I had to watch the video of this collection again and again.Defeated,i admitted that Karl Lagefeld once more did his magic and,without losing the core dna of the Chanel house-if ever that was possible!-transformed basic american pieces into iconic pieces. It was all cowgirl chic in a parisian view,meaning losing the quirky,too-american sense.The idea for the impressive Chanel new Métiers d’Art show was actually based in the story of Chanel’s connection with Stanley Marcus who highly appreciated her 1954 collection,even when Paris aimed for Dior.Transforming once more the traditional Chanel jacket to a longer,more ”outerwear” version, wearing tights with cowboy boots printed on them(how clever!),using fringes in a decostructive manner and mostly maintaining a palette of earthly colors,the collection was again a winner.From the ethereal whites to it’s leather blacks and bold statement neck brooches,it paid tribute both to native Americans and to the perception of a West ‘‘Inspired by a romantic, poetic version of Texas (“I tried to remove its relationship from tough Hollywood films; you know with John Wayne”)” stated Lagerferd to add in subtle irony: ”Chanel clothes are bought all over the world,They can have a local ethic inspiration, but, at the same time, they have to have a universal touch – otherwise it becomes limited. You can wear these clothes and look normal. This isn’t just for costume parties.” As if we would.
