Chanel inspired by Chanel

The traditional Chanel black & white: a white bag with an ornamental black pattern inspired by the architectural gardens from the film “Last Year at Marienbad” (1961), just as was the entire monochrome set where Karl Lagerfeld presented his spring-summer 2011 collection for Chanel. The collection was inspired by the black and white movie and by none other than Coco Chanel, because she created the costumes for the leading lady, Delphine Seyrig. Black lace and feathers dramatically worn in the movie (how strikingly timeless is the amazing wardrobe?) were perfectly integrated in next season’s creations.

Traditionalul alb-negru marca Chanel: o geanta alba cu un model ornamental negru care imita planul arhitectural al gradinii din filmul “Last Year at Marienbad” (1961), asa cum a fost conceput si intregul decor in care a avut loc prezentarea Chanel primavara-vara 2011. Colectia a avut ca sursa de inspiratie filmul alb-negru, Coco Chanel fiind cea care a creat costumele pentru actrita din rolul principal, Delphine Seyrig. Dantela neagra si penele folosite pentru minunatele tinute dramatice din film (atat de actuale si in zilele noastre) au fost perfect integrate in creatiile lui Karl Lagerfeld.
