Couture is fashion that is constructed by hand. Do you know how difficult it is to perfect couture? Do you know how long it takes to make a couture collection? Among all of the couture collections we have seen, this deserves respect simply because we have watched what went behind the scenes of this Chanel couture collection. How? Well, some of you might recognise the fashion documentary "Signé Chanel". Signé Chanel is a miniseries documentary that showed what went behind the scenes while creating Chanel's Couture A/W 2004- 2005 collection. This fashion documentary is one of its kind because it allows the audience to appreciate a couture collection even more. It shows the emotions of the seamstresses, the staff, and even Chanel's own braid maker who happens to be a farmer. It shows their moments of glory, their downfall, and how they manage to finish everything in the last minute.
We love it when Karl focuses on tweed when designing a Chanel collection. After all, we certainly believe that tweed is Chanel. For Chanel's A/W 2004- 2005 collection, Karl shifted his focus on tweed (and this explains why Signé Chanel had its focus on the French farmer who creates Chanel's braids). If you notice carefully, none of the models are carrying a Chanel bag. This is because this collection had so many details. We believe that Karl wanted the buyers to appreciate the details more this time. Notice how the models' hairs were styled with feathers and hats. Not only that, but the feathers and the hats themselves are extraordinary simply because of the marvelous details that they possess. It's pretty obvious that not all the hats are the same, and the feathers come in different sizes and shapes. The underskirts, white lace ruffles, and the neck bows show the Lagerfeld in Chanel, and we have to say, who doesn't love a little bit of Lagerfeld in Chanel?
