As a tweed aficionada, it's with eager anticipation that I await the Chanel fashion shows every season. And the last one did not disappoint. Indeed, just as expected, the setting was extravagant and the clothes were strikingly fabulous.
To introduce his latest looks for the spring/summer 2014 season, Karl Lagerfeld created an imaginary art gallery with some Chanel-inspired art pieces. Though the intention was probably to reflect upon the strong bond between art and fashion, it wouldn't be surprising to see all of these fascinating objects be sold for a pretty penny at the next Art Basel.

I was utterly charmed by the eclectic color palette ranging from atmospheric soft greys, delicate pastels and chic navy to explosively bright pink, which made tweed even more appealing and elegant. While the models wore quite vampish nail polish and eye makeup paired with funky bob wigs, the silhouettes presented in the white hangar were refreshingly classic with beautiful proportions and feminine lines.
Last year during the s/s Chanel show, all eyes were on the interestingly large circular beach bag. This time around, the cult objects were undoubtedly the cuff bracelets and necklaces with massive white pearls, adding a modern edge to each look.
My favorite piece? The A-line dress embroidered with white camellias, Coco Chanel's favorite flowers. Fancy anything you like?
