Chanel Spring 2009 Couture

A lot of the pieces in this entirely black and white collection look extremely pure and simple. Most of the shapes are very linear and basic, but the devil is in the details. Mirroring the intricate laser-cut headgear the models were wearing; the outfits all have intricately woven details and textures that are anything but bland.

This collection is a take on the intricate tangles between simplicity and complexity, and I think this is what makes it successful and interesting. It shows that it’s not all about color and shape and everything the eye catches at first glance but also about texture. Actually, this particular outfit reminds me of White on White by Malevich (which I should make a post about, it fits this exhibition pretty well).
