In bloom: bridal style inpsiration from Chanel’s Haute Couture runway

Wednesday, March 25th, 2009

A stunning profusion of flowers – delicate paper flowers, origami-styled flowers and Marie Antoinette inspired headpieces all paired with delicate white on white and black and white details – came to life at the Chanel 09 Haute Couture runway show. All of the headpieces and decoration at the show, 7000 handmade paper flowers to be exact, were made of paper by Katsuya Kamo, a Tokyo hairdresser.

I’m loving ethereal feeling of the columns wrapped in delicate paper flowers, and the black and white color combination is one that will always feel fresh and classic.

Of course, none of us have the time to cut 7,000 delicate flowers from paper, but the look could be replicated with MS’s tissue poms, a fancy clip from Anthro (like this or this). And, I’m sure I don’t need to remind you of all the lovelies at Ban.do!
