Fashion house Chanel opted for a relaxed, airy look for its Spring-Summer 2014 haute couture collection, sending its models down the Paris catwalk wearing breezy pastels and tennis shoes. The mood was in stark contrast to its Fall-Winter show last July, whose set evoked a bombed-out theatre. Head designer Karl Lagerfeld said Tuesday's bright white decor was meant to suggest a "nightclub in another galaxy". But despite the labour-intensive, meticulous work by Lagerfeld's "petites mains" -- literally small hands, or haute couture seamstresses -- he said after the show: "You have to have lightness, otherwise haute couture has a somewhat old-fashioned image."
