Couture shows have started and this means lots and lots of high fashion. I wasn’t particularly keen on Chanel’s collection as I had gotten tired of their close to drab definition of fashion and their tired aesthetics. But for this Spring Summer 2017 Couture, although still paying homage to their signature suited apparels, I was positively stunned.
Belts, a personal fave fashion piece for me, was everywhere. On tapered blazers, on fur lined dresses, on silk corsets and wrap dresses and on plaid trench coats and jackets and on peplum pieces and structured hems.
Sometimes, the belts came in corresponding hues of the piece they were layered on and other times they were matched with the silver pumps that adorned the models feet alongside a noticeable jewelry – jeweled and beaded anklets.
I like the collection and maybe if you go through all the pictures, you would too!
