Every Friday I will be writing about something that jumped out at me during the week or just about my favourite things in general. For the first instalment of MissMatchy’s Friday Favourites, I want to talk about Chanel’s latest runaway show, which took place in Salzburg (Austria) last Tuesday, December 2nd.
This collection just became one of my all-time favourites because truthfully, if I had to spend the rest of my life having only those clothes hanging in my wardrobe, I would wear them time and time again and would still die the happiest person that ever lived. For the first time in seasons Mr. Lagerfeld managed to appeal to my own sense of style with a collection that was pure magic. So theatrical it was almost costume-y (something I truly adore), the Christmas-like show was never a cliché, sparkling bright with a hint of fairytales and filled with a childhood nostalgia for a life we never had.
The moment this little white number appeared I thought I was having a heart-attack. Okay, ‘m being a little dramatic, but I could honestly feel my heart doing a maniacal dance of recognition: I feel this look represents every bit of who I am as well as exactly who I want to be.
Yet, if I could pick one piece from this entire collection to add to my wardrobe, it would be this floral cape. I have no words to express how utterly amazed by it I am.
Even the menswear looked dreamy. In fact, if my boyfriend showed up wearing a version of this outfit I would either: a) drop dead, or b) have to marry him on the spot.
And if you haven’t seen it yet, the entire show is available on Youtube for the mere mortals among us who could not score an invitation to the soirée. Watch it below and let me know which look was favourite in the comments section.
