Today I’m attacking Georges Chakra’s Fall 2011 couture collection, I think we can place him fourth on the worldwide popularity scale of lebanese designers, as he dressed celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry, and Blake Lively. And that’s why, after Elie Saab, Zuhair Murad, and Georges Hobeika, here’s a review of Georges Chakra’s Fall 2011 couture collection.
I have to start by saying that I always find Chakra’s collection really intriguing as they are totally heteregeneous, and filled with great ideas, unfortunately often badly executed… So I divided the dresses in three categories, the best ones, the almost-good ones, and the bad ones… And if I don’t show you all of the dresses you can see the rest on his site.
(Very Mugler-ish, but amazing suits !)
(So ethereal !)
(Vivienne Westwood style, love it !)
(This one’s stuning, somehow reminds me of Alexander McQueen)
(Classy and original, you’ve got to love this !)
Now let’s check the good ideas that could have given wonderful dresses…
(It should have been the same black on the upper part…)
(I don’t know what, but something disturbs me in the dress, although I love the work on the shoulders…)
(Shorter, and other colors…)
(Without the rhinestones…)
(I love the bottom, but the top just doesn’t suit in…)
( A less stiff fabric for the bottom would have been better…)
And now, the ugly dresses, the weird ones I’d never want to see someone wearing as I would probably start laughing…
(Sheep-ish, much ?)
(The ‘’What Le Fuck’’ dress of the collection…)
To sum up, Georges Chakra is a designer whose work deserve more attention, but also more sophistication… I think he should be looked at, as a pioneer, he is truly one of the sources of lebanon’s designs, and a designer that dares some architectural cuts that are really original if you look at them from a specific angle…
Bleeeh ! It may not be the best post on my blog, I got distracted by some firends and TV… Anyway I hope you’re enjoying these reviews, and I promise to be back soon with another one, but I don’t know when cause I’ll be really busy for a while my friends… You know how it is… Summer, trips, friends, etc.
See ya !
