    THE ELBPHILHARMONIE

    THE ELBPHILHARMONIE

    The Elbphilharmonie concert hall standing on the bank of the river Elbe in the old port area of Hamburg, which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the city’s new cultural landmark. It was designed by the Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron and symbolizes the past, the present, and the future. Built atop the original brick walls of a former cocoa warehouse, the glass structure has a roof in the shape of waves, rising to a height of 110 meters. This scale of the edifice echoes that of the ocean-going vessels berthed opposite in the port. Its strange silhouette stands out in this very horizontal city. The glass facade, made up partly of curved window panels, makes it look like a giant crystal set over the old buildings. This new building is the showcase venue for the Paris‑Hamburg 2017/18 Métiers d’art show.

    SPRING-SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION

    SPRING‑SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION

    CHANEL presented the Spring‑Summer 2018 Ready‑to‑Wear collection at the Grand Palais against a backdrop of cascading waterfalls. Karl Lagerfeld's designs for the new season feature a palette of blues and greens in a range of acid pastels, radiant whites, and iridescent fabrics. The ethereal collection plays with subtle associations, contrasting lengths, clean lines, and light, airy shapes.
    Structured, broad-shouldered looks are softened by flowing lines. Tweed features widely, combined with leather on bra tops and mini skirts, in patchwork on mini-dresses, and shot through with lurex thread in coat-dresses. Suit jackets are paired with capri pants, dresses with geometrical topstitching, or short skirts trimmed with twisted braid. Oversize white chiffon blouses knotted with scarves are tucked into pencil miniskirts. Short and long dresses for day or evening wear play with a range of luxury fabrics, from crumpled lace and embossed chiffon adorned with crystal drop beads to pleated silk, enveloping the body in delicate constrasting shades of pastels and brights, while fringes, flounces, and folds of silk create a sense of movement.
    Transparent PVC is everywhere, from boaters, hoods, and capes to fingerless gloves, footwear, and thigh boots to withstand spring showers and summer downpours. Several bags are worn together, each with its own PVC protective cover. This season's the CHANEL GABRIELLE bag is in rubber or patent leather, while the BOY bag is in iridescent PVC. The 11.12 is adorned with sequins and clutches are in crystal plexiglass or decorated with diamanté or a sequin trim to catch the light. Sports bags are in coated canvas printed with the CHANEL logo and camelias, while oversize totes are in embossed nylon in a palette of blues and pinks.

    TWEED AND PATENT LEATHER

    This season brings fabric juxtapositions and combinations of tweed and patent leather. Roughly finished hems extend into fringes for movement and lightness, playing on proportions.

    BLUE HUE

    BLUE HUE

    Chiffon, silk, and lace take on the colors of rock, echoing the decor of water and stone. A stream of blues parade by: blue lagoon denim with crystalline blue vinyl, turquoise blue tweed combined with silk chiffon printed in shaded hues of blue and white.

    CRYSTALLINE BEADS

    CRYSTALLINE BEADS

    As one of this collection’s star embellishments, beads adorn every look. By turns transparent or iridescent, they multiply with the models’ every passage. These rivers of pearls are a tribute to the personal style of Gabrielle Chanel. Worn in random layers, lengths and sizes, they catch the light and illuminate the fabrics. Translucent earrings are shaped like a water droplet or embellished with tiny beads; multi-strand bracelets, pearlescent sautoirs in gradations of blue and a necklace-belt illustrate the endless range and possibilities of beads.
