Paris Fashion Week Part III: Advocate and Provocateur
Just when you think there could hardly be anything more OTT than the Chanel supermarket, Karl Lagerfeld managed to outstage himself again. This season’s set was Boulevard Chanel which recreated the Parisian street scene inside the Grand Palais. What the Chanel girls took to the street was not only a variety of tweed suits, appliqué dresses and summer knits but also feminist issues. Gisele Bündchen and Cara Delevingne were spotted among a bevy of models holding placards and speaker phones to promote awareness of women’s rights.
We’ll be seriously bummed if the Chanel 2.55 loud speaker doesn’t go into production.
Having been a long-time advocate of postmodern fashion and social political opinions, Dame Vivienne Westwood devotes her show to the theme of climate change. Westwood’s passion for the environment is loud and clear in her fashion collection.
Animal rights activist and vegan Stella McCartney is probably one of the few designers who can elevate eco-fashion into covetable wardrobe staples. The SS15 collection ticks all the key trends from denims to summer sweaters to sporty silhouettes and ultimately effortless femininity.
We love the flowing silhouette in pastels.
