Chanel Haute Couture 2014

Gone was the usual extravagance and magnificence we have become accustomed to at a Karl Lagerfeld Chanel Haute Couture 2014 show in place of a refined, modern elegance featuring a grand fire place and gold gilded mirror.

Lagerfeld's idea to transform the Grand Palais into a simple refined set was always in the back of his mind, "I just never found a place to do it," he says.

The set was inspired by 1930's architect Le Corbusier's Paris apartment overlooking the Champs-Elysees and was the perfect backdrop to the Baroque inspired collection.

For his fall haute couture presentation Lagerfeld went back to the basics of couture, with regal curving silhouettes and supreme craftsmanship.From textiles made out of concrete, to tweed bike shorts worn with matching coats and dresses to fiery red gowns with woven threads and the simplistic beauty of a white evening gown with glittering gold trim - this was another level of couture.

We've put together a selection of best looks from Chanel Haute Couture 2014.
