From Paris to Bombay: Chanel’s Pre-Fall Collection
The theme is ‘Paris-Bombay’, and the clothing a perfect hybrid of the two cites. Chanel’s signature tweed blends seamlessly with luxurious silks, jewelled headpieces, metallic saris and beaded sandals.
Echoing classic Indian silhouettes, ‘Paris-Bombay’ is complete with modern twists on traditional Indian saris, churidars and kameezs, establishing a truly exotic aesthetic.
The collection eschews the cliché of an Indian color palette, with black, rusts, creams, and grays dominating the runway.
There was however the occasional burst of fuchsia or turquoise in key pieces.
Largerfeld’s pre-fall take on the classic Chanel suit combines Indian extravagance with Parisian Chic.
Liquid-gold lamé dresses feature exquisite embellishment and sari-like draping.
