CHANEL couture at the Villa Noailles

Text and photography by Filep Motwary.


It is well known that Chanel partnered with Hyeres Festival for it’s 30th anniversary and this brought a different air to the whole event. Everything seemed to be more bold this time, with a weight that one appreciates with pleasure. The “piscine” room, where Marie Laure De Noailles once enjoyed moments with artists and friends is now Chanel’s sanctuary, showcasing pieces from Chane’s Fall 2014 collection, inspired by Carlos de Beistegui.

Architectural purity, shapes and flawless embroidery, gems and stones and crafts. This is what Chanel is about.

The Haute Couture collection does not surprise, on the contrary you know what you are invited to see, yet you find yourself standing there, appreciating every inch of creation from any possible angle.
