”Make Fashion Not War” – Chanel, Paris Fashion Week

Karl Lagerfeld surprised us one more time with the last Chanel’s catwalk show in Paris. The head designer and creative director of fashion house Chanel sent famous models Cara Delevingne, Gisele Bundchen and Georgia-May Jagger down the runway, which was transformed into a Paris boulevard. With signs and megaphones in their hands they supported women rights, inspired by Emma Watson’s campaign He for She. A Dutch face was spotted during the runaway fashion show Maartje Verhoef!

The protest began quietly and the whole collection was shown peaceful, without propaganda. At the end of the show top models came out with big signs.  Some of the messages that the models were carrying with them were saying: ” Women’s rights are more then allright”, “Ladies First”, “Make Fashion not War” and “Divorce pour tout.”

The collection is rich, with a big variety of tones. It shows that Chanel women are free spirited and daring. They are independent, feminine and masculine and do not care about social norms. Wearing Chanel gives you an image of Gabrielle Chanel. You’ll walk the streets with confidence and proudly. Some of the clothes of the collection are inspired on menswear with double-breasted blazers and boxy jackets, cuffed wide-leg trousers and flat boots, remaining feminine with a big palette of colors – pink, orange, purple, green and blue. Some of the clutches had a special message for freedom: “Féministe mais Féminine” and “Make Fashion not War.” A new bag-jacket made it’s first appearance with soft leather handles that allow to be worn over the shoulder or tied around the waist.

SPOTTED STYLE joins in the support of He for She!

Stay tuned!
