On our minds: Chanel’s Eco Couture

Posted in Style

Suddenly, one of fashion's real game changers Karl Lagerfeld takes a stand for ecology and sustainable fashion.

On our minds is Karl Lagerfeld’s sudden stand for eco-consciousness at Chanel’s recent couture show. The designer, whose statements on sustainably sound fashion to date have been mainly critical, surprisingly embraced the sentiment for the season, meaning that he liked “the idea to take ecology one step further and to make a high fashion, very elegant and very luxurious version of it.” His very luxurious interpretation featured wood shavings and embroidered honey bees – the latter perhaps reflecting the designer’s ironic tendencies as bees have traditionally been a concern only to the most dedicated environmentalists. Lagerfeld’s long-term commitment may also be questioned as he motivated the eco-conscious direction of the collection by saying that fashion is an expression of our time, which at the moment is all about ecology.
