Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Haute Couture Show

I'm not one to fancy high fashion much, but when I saw that the Chanel Spring-Summer 2013 Haute Couture show was taking place in such a beautiful venue, I couldn't resist watching the entire collection.

That is the Grand Palais in Paris. It is where Chanel do their show every year, but this year the atmosphere looks extra enticing. Maybe because I'm such a nature freak nowadays, but I love the creation of an indoor woodland to add to the beauty of the Grand Palais. It looks as if a mythical forest erupted from the beautiful ruins of human beings. If I were present in the audience, I would feel as though fairies were going to materialize in front of my eyes.

You can watch the entire show here:

Here are pictures of my favorites from the collection. Although, honestly, these dresses look better in motion rather than in still photos. I think it might be because all the models look depressed.

  1. I'm not big on fashion either and those girls look like they're one sad song away from cutting themselves, but that's a gorgeous venue. Probably the only time I'd ever watch a fashion show.

    1. Exactly. I'm not a huge fan of fashion shows, especially anything involving Mr. Potato Skin there, but the bastard can put on a good show.
