A few magical days in Paris for Haute Couture Week has really given me the energy and creativity boost I needed! I had almost forgotten what it feels like to be rushing around the city, running on adrenaline and totally absorbed by the buzzing atmosphere that is everywhere in Paris during couture week. It’s so good to be back!
I was honoured to digitally support another Chanel show as the unveiling of their couture collections is always an incredible experience and is one of my favourites to look forward to on the official schedule. The show production, collection looks, and attention to detail across all elements were beautifully orchestrated, as always. For more of my thoughts on the show itself, check out my Chanel Couture Fall 2021/2022 runway highlights here.
I also wanted to share my show look with you again this season to give you a more detailed breakdown of the pieces. I think this look could be one of my favourites (though I say that every time ;)), what do you guys think?
I was instantly drawn to this scarlet red sweater which features Chanel branding, embellished with pearls and crystals. I especially loved the cascading pearls that connect the letters together. I paired the sweater with cropped tweed trousers that have been delicately woven with metallic thread and sequins which catch the light when you walk. Tweed is such an iconic fabric for the house so it was all the more special for me to wear this look.
Accessories wise, I added my favourite logo earrings and lots of chunky necklaces, including this split choker. This mini gold classic flap bag actually took my breath away, the metallic gold leather, the open latticework and braided chain make it the perfect evening bag. I hope you can see from the way I’ve styled it that you could totally wear this with a more daytime look as it’s such a versatile piece.
Last but not least: statement crystal-embellished wedges. It’s not often that I wear wedges but these ones really speak for themselves and are such a mood – perfect for summer evenings in Paris. <3
