Rather than transporting the show over to Greece, the designer finds that there is no suitable venue to relay the theme of the show; so the designer set up a replica of the Temple of Poseidon in the Galerie Courbe at the Grand Palais. This serves a brilliant photo op for the guests, who posed like tourists in the backdrop lit up with powerful lights to create the illusion of the Mediterranean sky.
The Chanel show kickstarted the Cruise season with this ode to the Grecian gods and how Kaiser Karl idealized Greece entitled, “The Modernity of Antiquity”. Think Grecian and the colors of sway from earthy to summer whites and the hard-to-miss Parisian monochromatic black and white tones.
Elements of Greek culture/heritage and mythology made their way to the designs of course; take the shoes; with some heel are detailed with ionic columns and dresses detailed with illustrations seen on Greek pottery. Knitwear in pure whites also made an impression with the iconic Chanel tweeds, along with Venus-like bias-cut dresses in rich tones of Gold and accessory accents made for the divine.
