Karl Lagerfeld closed the  the show with a wedding gown worn by no other than his favorite model, Cara Delevingne. The German designer is Maestro at making couture feel modern with his styling touches.

Chanel Garden Party
Chanel Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2015

Atelier Lemarié / Making-of the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2015 Haute Couture Collection
 
“They’re flowers that don’t exist, it’s a vision of an earthly paradise, an imaginary greenhouse,” Karl Lagerfeld explained - in his trademark playfully obscure manner - the circular botanical glasshouse erected underneath the dome of the Grand Palais.  Chanel’s garden of the moment was created to display the Maison’s Spring-Summer 2015 floral themed Haute Couture collection.

As the lights went up, paper leaves opened to reveal blooms brighter even than nature intended and multi-colored vegetation. And flowers were the story with the clothes too. There were flowers everywhere and King Karl  admitted that it took six months to create the 300 flowers used in this spring/summer collection. Each of them had its own engine, and when at the show's start Baptiste Giabiconi, currently the male face of Chanel, applied a theatrical splash from a CC-branded watering can and they simultaneously burst into mechanical bloom.

Karl Lagerfeld at work

The German designer is Maestro at making couture feel modern with his styling touches. He has the business knowledge that he not only must dress the richest middle-aged women but also their daughters. He kept this collection poetic and modern featuring a sumptuous palette of fresh, vibrant colors - pinks, oranges, reds, electric blue and pollen yellow -  that were loosely inspired by an extraordinary and generous garden comprising of crystal encrusted tweed jackets, pastel colored suits, midriff-baring tops, short and long A-line skirts, evening gowns and a bridal outfit too. Of course the collection was complete with Chanel’s little black dress.

The outfits were accessorized with wide-rimmed tulle hats, floral beanies, flat leather sock-boots and more. Embroideries, origami folds, braided and fringed chiffon, pearls, sequins, material effects and delicate motifs conveyed the full extent of the ateliers' expertise.

The Wedding Dress

Karl Lagerfeld closed the  the show with a wedding gown worn by no other than his favorite model, Cara Delevingne. “This fairy tale dress inspired by flora, was created in the Lemarié ateliers. A dozen people over a month assembled more than 3,000 components. The gown's entirely sequin-embroidered short-sleeved top, flared over a long train which was like a bed of flowers. Barely colored by occasional pops of delicate pink, this subtle collage of pristine petals revealed a composition that blended chiffon, organza, white iridescent plastic curls, rhinestones and pearls. In lieu of the traditional white veil, Karl Lagerfeld used a wide-brimmed hat topped with a cloud-like tulle.” Last season the Chanel bride was pregnant, this season the bride walked around the catwalk with four male gardeners as bridesmaids, each carrying a huge tropical bouquet of flowers to tie the whole theme together.
