Chanel Brings Ancient Greece to Paris for Resort 2018

Chanel Brings Ancient Greece to Paris for Resort 2018Under Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel has made a habit of taking its Cruise collections on the road to fabulous destinations, from Cuba to Seoul, and drawing inspiration from the local culture and style. But if Lagerfeld can stage a rocket launch in the Grand Palais, as he did for Fall 2017, maybe he can also conjure the spirits of international style right at home in Paris. That he did today with a collection called “La Modernité de l’Antiquité” that raised ancient Greece from the past. Ionic columns rose in the Grand Palais, while a Greek sunset served as a painted backdrop. While you wait for Luke Leitch’s review, get the five things you need to know about Chanel Resort 2018 here.

THE INSPIRATION:

In Coco Chanel’s Rue Cambon apartment, a bust of Venus sat on the mantle. That served as Lagerfeld’s jumping-off point this season, with the designer saying, “The criteria of beauty in ancient, then classical, Greece still hold true. There have never been more beautiful representations of women. Or more beautiful columns. The entire Renaissance, in fact, was based on antiquity. It is really about the youth of the world in all its power and unpredictability.“

THE COLUMN SHOES:
Forget stiletto or block heels. Lagerfeld’s take on Greek style comes complete with Ionic column–heeled gladiator sandals. If history has taught us anything, it’s that Ionic columns are quite sturdy.

THE POTTERY DRESSES:
Red-and-black-figure-painted pottery was one of the most popular ways ancient Greeks depicted the human body in two dimensions. Lagerfeld reworked the motifs in column dresses with rows and rows of illustrations evoking the Greek originals.

Tribal Tree: Gift of Unique Jewelry

4806ed0d8b1605665249620600b075c4

Tribal jewellery is not a cohesive whole. We often refer to certain kinds of jewellery as being tribal, but within this broad umbrella, are a number of different tribal cultures which have produced very notable kinds of styles for the objects of adornment.

Tribal jewellery has been produced by almost all tribal cultures, but some of these styles are more pronounced and renowned than the others. African tribal designs, Turkish designs, Tibetan designs Native American designs amongst others,1fe2d69d023d17fe974d9fccd7f8abc0.jpghave their own distinct trademarks and are very popular. Pieces produced with these designs are very distinct. Although many of these tribal cultures have died out in their truest forms, their histories remain in (amongst other things) their style of jewellery.

In the past, tribal jewellery was made out of many different kinds of materials. From animal bones claws, to rocks and seeds, jewellery was made out of the natural elements which these cultures found themselves amongst. However, today, making jewellery out of animal parts is illegal, not to mention cruel and unfeeling. Metal is used to make most of the jewellery, but the tribal designs and motifs are still preserved through these different materials.

Tribal jewellery used to be worn by both men and women. The jewellery extended beyond just being pieces of adornment. The kind of jewellery one wore, suggested one’s status in society, or in the family hierarchy. The jewellery was also very essential in trade and was very essential to the barter system. In some cultures, tribal jewellery was also very important because it had spiritual value.

Tribal jewellery styles are followed till date, in order to ensure cultural heritage and in order to preserve a dying and niche art. Tribal jewellery designs may have been crude, and not as intricate, but they have their own distinctiveness and they have their unique artistic appeal. Most cultures wore tribal jewellery in large amounts, on a daily basis, and they layered their jewellery. Most of the designs are based on geometrical shapes, although other, more intricate patterns are also sometimes made, but in crude ways.
Even today, wearing tribal jewellery is incredibly fashionable.

They are almost always big and chunky, and are statement pieces. They are eye-catching and very artistic, and if you want to make it a part of your daily attire, then there are some ways to make sure they look their best. Pairing them up with ethic clothes is one way to go about wearing tribal jewellery. One can also mix it up by wearing it with basics, so that the attention is focused on the statement piece. Tribal necklaces are very big, so make sure you do not use big earrings along with them, because then the effect will look crowded and overdone.

Tribal rings, however, are something you can go all out, with. Wearing various kinds of tribal rings on many fingers will attract attention towards your hands. Tribal ankets too, look very chic. Wear them with shorts, a long or short skirt, three-quarter pants and tights.

This kind of jewellery, which is today made of silver, metal, and various semi-precious stones and beads, is a unique fashion statement which is very much in! So go ahead and explore your wilder side with various kinds of old and new tribal jewellery.

The ,”Kanjeevaram Klich”

97c4d3e50619cc66d1243ef415d593f9.jpg

Kanjeevaram silk saree is a magnificent creation of the craftsmen living in a small town, Kanchi (Kanchipuram), situated near the Bangalore city of South India. The saree has been named after the town in which it is produced. The silk used in the creation of Kanjivaram saree is extremely fine as well as durable and is one of the most popular forms of silk in the state of Tamil Nadu. The bold and bright color of the sari is very much preferred by the South Indian women, whose trousseau remains incomplete without this amazing outfit.

Kanjivaram sarees of India make use of a combination of numerous colored threads. Adding to the attraction of the saris is the exquisite and elaborate zari (a form of embroidery) work. The motifs used in an Indian Kanchipuram sari are heavily based on the Pallava temples, palaces and paintings. However, these days one can see scenes from great epics, Ramayana and Mahabharata, along with the Bhagwad Gita being used as motifs. Tribal designs as well as contemporary patterns are also seen.

The sheer magnitude of textures, colors and designs of Kanjivaram silk saris of India is incredible. Simple saris can be prepared in about 10 to 12 days. However, decorative ones require up to 20 days of workmanship. Kanjeevarams are expensive and can cost anywhere between Rs. 2000 to Rs. 50,000. The cost of the saree depends upon the amount of zari intertwined with the silk. The more the zari work, the more expensive the sari will be.
