Chanel’s Spring 2010 Couture show was full of pretty pastels, beautiful bows and touches of silver.

The one thing that struck me about the collection was the lack of Karl Lagerfeld’s usual use of black and white.

Lagerfeld called this his “neon baroque” theme and although the traditional Chanel suit was seen in abundance, there were unusual twists like culotte style shorts and ruched skirts.

Silver was also seen throughout the collection and I love the contrast it brings to the candy colours.

Silver shoe boots along with metallic half gloves and lurex tights brought a touch of the space age to this otherwise soft and pretty collection.

I especially love how delicate tulle was ruched into soft swirls and paired with silver lamé to provide interesting harder edges.

Models wore matching bows in their hair with white streaks throughout their bangs and bouffant updos.

I love how the show ended with Abbey Lee Kershaw and Baptiste Giabiconi dressed as bride and groom and looking like they’d just stepped straight off the top of a wedding cake.
