    "A DRESS COMES UNDER SCULPTURE, <BR />NOT DRAWING" GABRIELLE CHANEL

    "A DRESS COMES UNDER SCULPTURE,
    NOT DRAWING" GABRIELLE CHANEL

    Gabrielle Chanel's fascination for Greek Antiquity had a profound influence on how she saw creation. In the center of her apartment stood a headless Venus dating from the first century BC. The timeless, strikingly modern figure implicitly reveals Gabrielle Chanel's technique, painstakingly chiselling, as it were, her garments with her fingers, her pins, the tools of her trade. She referred to the sculptor Praxiteles to explain her art and her vision of fashion, with cuts influenced by architecture, a repertoire of shapes, and fabric that draped naturally over the body.

    GABRIELLE CHANEL'S ANTIQUE COSTUMES

    GABRIELLE CHANEL'S ANTIQUE COSTUMES

    Choosing an outfit always means deciding what character to play, just like an actor dresses in character for a role on stage. The analogy extends to conjuring up new looks in sketches and drawings. It was thus hardly surprising that in the early 1920s, Jean Cocteau should turn to Gabrielle Chanel, the woman he held to be "the finest dressmaker of the day". He asked her to design costumes for three tragedies, Antigone, Orpheus, and Oedipus Rex, based on rough sketches. Harking back to Greek mythology offered a way to breathe fresh relevance into universal themes such as war, marriage, the power of language, and metamorphosis. Alongside the actors, Cocteau worked with avant-garde artists, with Picasso providing set designs and Honegger the music for Antigone.

    MODERN MYTHOLOGY <BR />BY KARL LAGERFELD

    MODERN MYTHOLOGY
    BY KARL LAGERFELD

    Karl Lagerfeld sought inspiration in ancient Greece for Modern Mythology, a series of photographs drawing on the greatest romance of all Antiquity, Longus's Daphnis and Chloe. The models Bianca Balti and Baptiste Giabiconi in the lead roles embody not the title characters so much as memories of a lost civilization: "Reality is of no interest to me. I use what I like". Karl Lagerfeld
