How To Wear Skirts Over Pants, The Chanel Way
January 24, 2017 - fall Denim
The couture throng might have woken adult all intoxicated following an all-night cover-up round during a Musée Rodin celebrating Maria Grazia Chiuri’s entrance couture show for Dior, though there’s no sleeping in on an invitation from Karl Lagerfeld — even if it has a 10 a.m. call time. Plus, Chanel’s haute presentations are improved eye-openers than a strongest expresso this side of a Seine (see: tumble ’16’s Chanel Data Center, or even final spring’s eco board redux during a Grand Palais). For his latest collection, however, there was no impracticable thesis or theatre set — rather, a garments spoke for themselves.
Now, there’s a few things we can always design from a Chanel gathering: There’s a cackle of big-name models walking a runway (Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Soo Joo Park, Lindsey Wixson, and even Lily-Rose Depp were all benefaction this morning), there’s a march of tweed and bouclé dress suits, blending to a specific trends and colors of any given season, and there’s a stellar dusk wear which, while unattainable for many of a star in catwalk form, can outline a few pivotal silhouettes to demeanour out for come celebration season. In a Chanel couture universe, open ’17 will see a lot of tulip silhouettes, crystal-encrusted skirts, thick belts, and one sold outfit multiple we might not have revisited given a class propagandize days: skirts over pants.
Lagerfeld followed in a footsteps of Raf Simons for Dior haute couture in reviving this dear pairing. He did so by formulating a seamless demeanour with a layered bottoms: A skinny-fit trouser ragged underneath a dress or dress fashioned out of a same material, so it seems like a singular garment. The tip square is belted high on a torso, pulling a waistline upwards and permitting a fabric to tumble down some-more loosely over a pants. This is positively an ascent from technicolor leggings we wore underneath a denim smock skirts behind in a day.
