Fall ’17 Couture: Georges Chakra

Eliza Scarborough   |   04-07-2017

From the floral girl of last summer season to the dark mysterious woman of this winter, Georges Chakra is renewing his creative priorities. The Fall 2017 collection, which was presented at the Musée de l’Homme, is dedicated to the self-assured and graceful feline woman whose fearlessness was deepened and exaggerated.  Although intense, Chakra’s new muse is still in touch with her romantic side.


Silhouettes are contemporary and elegant, with asymmetrical skirts, defined corsets, ruffled skirts, and capes. The fabrics are rich, from shimmering velvet, to fine lace, embroidered tulle, and transparent draping. Off course the embellishment was intricate, and there were flowers embroidered between crystals and Swarovski stones, and airy feathers highlighting sleeves and trains. Colours are inspired by autumn, in tones of emerald green, plum, violet, quartz and amber, with co-ordinating bejewelled thigh-high boots.


The grand finale was a spectacular mini corseted bridal dress, decorated with appliqué mother-of-pearl flowers and waves of tulle, again paired with a matching pair of sequined thigh-high boots, and draped under a hooded cloak train.
