Seoul: Leave it up to Karl Lagerfeld to lead the way in selecting an innovative venue in which to present his latest collection. Staged at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, a futuristic structure designed by Zaha Hadid and South Korean-based Samoo Architects & Engineers, Lagerfeld combined references to Korean traditional dressing with iconic Chanel jackets in bright combinations of colour. The show began with a colourful tweed Chanel suit while the the Chanel icon and name were patterned into brightly coloured patchworks. Colour was the leitmotif for the presentation – bold strips of coloured combinations in a patchwork technique was inspired by the South Korean equivalent of the kimono and was quintessential to the collection. Inspiration from Korean traditional dress inspired many of the exquisite ensembles throughout – from mother-of-pearl embroidery delicately placed across a black dress that came from the decoration on Korean wedding chests to the finale of high empire line dresses – simple yet elegant, completing a dramatic yet seoulful collection. – Lizzy Bowring
