PFW: Chanel Spring 2014 is Rough-Around-the-Edges Elegance

As Jay Z’s ‘Picasso, Baby’ blared through the Grand Palais’ palatial halls, the models — clad in black crop wigs, sharp Siouxsie Sioux eye makeup, and oversize pearl chokers — stomped past larger-than-life paintings, sculptures, and giant Chanel C’s.

Despite their sweet pastel hues, the French house’s opening tweeds got injected with punk prowess in drop-waist shapes and unfinished detail. The show featured a grey scale interlude, in which Karl Lagerfeld went for 50 shades of grey, from winter white to charcoal, with pops of berry and cobalt, on textured dresses and boxy jackets. The show rounded out with a staggering rush of rainbow paint palette prints and frosty separates on slash-cut-out silhouettes.

To call Lagerfeld’s gallery girls rough around the edges would be an understatement, but their undone elegance is incontestable. See the collection, below:
