colour crush : Chanel's paint palette

I'm feeling totally inspired by this gorgeous paint palette style print from Chanel's Spring-Summer 2014, ready-to-wear collection. Isn't it amazing!? A rainbow of colours straight off a paint brush, just like those little carefree doodles we do in our sketchbooks when testing colours. Those little doodles are mini works of art in themselves and this print is such a beautiful way to celebrate the idea of creative expression. This abstract design actually comes from an antique 1900s paint chart making those brush marks over 100 years old! I wonder if the paint swatches in the original chart are as vibrant and candy coloured as this print?


I love how Lagerfeld has put it to work in these designs and on different fabric qualities. It looks so ethereal on the billowy gauzy fabrics yet so dramatic on the opaque, like a child has been let loose with their crayon box! The play on the abstract theme by manipulating the fabrics with crimps, pleats and ruffles is just gorgeous! It's a total riot of colour but done so elegantly and effortlessly. It makes me want to play with paint...
