The Modernity of Antiquity.

 

 

 

 

With the collection entitled ” La modernité de l’Antiquité” , the house of Chanel imagines the ideal vision of Ancient Greece.

 

An olive tree, 11 Ionic columns covered with rosemary and sage and a painting of the Aegean decorated the walls of Paris’ Grand Palais.

The invitation featured a headless Greco-Roman statue of Venus which is kept in Chanel’s apartment at the brand’s headquarters on Rue Cambon. The show notes pointed out that Chanel also designed the costumes for French poet Jean Cocteau’s revival of the Greek tragedy “Antigone” in 1922.

Tweed of course had a principal role on the runway. Additionally, silk and burlap are some of the other main materials to be used.  The Greek themed collection was full of draping dresses, one-shouldered silhouettes, and gold motifs.

 

The colour pallete stayed true to the theme in shades of white, earth, neutral with a hint of black and dark blue.

 

On the contrary, when it comes to shoes, the gladiator sandals were full of bright colours.

 

What is more impressive accessories like arm cuffs, braided headbands and owl brooches completes the Grecian goddess looks.
