    The geometric lines designed by Karl Lagerfeld underscore the waist and accentuate the shoulders. The cuts create a clean, structural look for the silhouettes of the Fall‑Winter 2016/17 Haute Couture collection.

    THE ATELIERS AT THE GRAND PALAIS

    It all starts here: The ideas and sketches are brought to life. The Chanel Haute Couture ateliers are functional and understated, in neutral tones.
    In the hands of the seamstresses, the sketch takes form and shape, becomes a silhouette.

    The décor for this 2016 Haute Couture show is dedicated to creation: the idea of the dress, from the premise to the reality. An octagonal space now reigns under the arches of the Grand Palais and the guests, seated in the center, look outwards towards the Chanel ateliers, as if they have been transposed from the rue Cambon, with straight pins, patterns, rolls of fabric and a few photos. The models walk along the ateliers and the show joins the backstage. Each seamstress concentrates on her meticulous task, until the models arrive, capturing the attention of all with their self-assured step.

    And so, the creations are presented closest to those who gave them form: the seamstresses, offering an unprecedented, profound and overlapping image. Because the primary ingredient of Chanel Haute Couture remains the skilled and precise gestures of these discrete virtuosos - in the spotlight for this once.

    Parisian chic icon, Caroline de Maigret, has become a Chanel spokesperson and ambassadress. Model, music producer and writer, Caroline de Maigret embodies the spirit of Chanel with her strong values.

She was one of the celebrities chosen by Karl Lagerfeld for his book and photography exhibition The Little Black Jacket. Caroline de Maigret walks or is seated front row at fashion shows and often attends events in France or abroad, most recently Beijing for the Paris in Rome fashion show replica and Cuba for the Cruise runway show.
