Chanel 2016 Couture Collection Honors Its Atelier

A touching tribute to the nameless seamstresses who toil behind-the-scenes.

Chanel‘s 2016 couture show was a touching behind-the-scenes glance into the production process and people who make the clothes. “Behind the girls in the show, there are 200 more who make what they wear—that’s quite a lot, no?—and I thought we should show them to the public too,” said Karl Lagerfeld. In short, the entire atelier was transplanted onto the show stage.

Models, with their piled-up curls, came down with wide-leg pantsuits, low-swooping belled skirt shapes and cocktail frocks. There was tweed, floriform embroidery and cool proportions on shoulders embellished with ostrich feathers. The photos above don’t do Chanel’s “reality” show nor clothing justice, so stay tuned for the video.
