Chanel’s 2017 Spring Couture Collection Was Inspired by a… Spoon?
Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s beautiful 2017 Haute Couture collection in Paris today. Honestly, it was breathtaking. There were feathers, pink ruffles and gorgeous pastel skirt suits.
Models including Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner and Lily-Rose Depp walked in front of a mirrored set that was inspired by the studio of the brand’s original designer, Coco Chanel, at 31 Rue Cambon. There, she would sit at the top of a mirrored stairway and watch the models walk in her fashion shows.
But you’ll never guess the muse behind Lagerfeld’s silhouettes he sent down the runway. According to Women’s Wear Daily, Lagerfeld was “inspired by a sculpture from the Twenties by a Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti titled ‘Spoon Woman.’”
That’s right, folks — those fancy clothes were designed after a utensil used for shoving ice cream (sometimes directly from the pint) into our mouths. Come this spring, we’ll all be dressing like spoons… should you feel like blowing a couple month’s rent on a new outfit, that is.
