Karl Lagerfeld turned the Grand Palais into a Chanel modern art gallery for Spring 2014 with an explosion of bright color; from the wild painterly knits, the grey denim pieces, leather and the modern accessories, all bore the artistic theme. Needless to say, it had all the Chanel signatures but with a full-blown modern artistic interpretation! – [StyleSight]

Deconstruction, trompe l'oeil, collage, bricolage—this Chanel collection was a fest of art processes. You never get the sense that Lagerfeld is pushing himself; he makes everything look much too easy for that. Nevertheless, in the ninety-ish looks he showed today, there were more stories than he would usually be bothered to tell. For instance, a paint chart from the 1900s yielded a whole group of primally Pantone-ed pieces. They were something quite new for Chanel. There were great things that looked like they'd been scissored from charcoaled canvas—again, in keeping with the theme but intriguingly raw for Chanel. And Lagerfeld's collaborators kept the dream alive with their impeccable contributions. - []
