Chanel‘s latest Pre-Fall 2014 collection is a celebration of American style. The Metiers d’Arts show was staged in Dallas, the reason being: Neiman Marcus in Dallas was thrilled about the brand’s 1954 comeback collection, when the French were not. So Chanel paid homage to the Lone Star state. Titled “Back in Dallas”, the designs are brimming with star motifs, cowboy hats and boots, ponchos, and so much more. Not straying too far from convention, the brand’s signature tweed suits are plentiful, paired with leather cowboy boots, wool hats, and gemstone jewellery.
Pants form the backbone of this collection. From a roomy, tweed pair paired with a stripe sweater to leather contrast stripe skinnies giving a menswear-inspired edge with patent, star-emblazoned oxfords, the designs really speak to the wearable nature that is inherent to the Pre-Fall season. Print and texture take centre stage in this collection, with wool ponchos, layered jerseys, aztec-inspired print and fringing.
