Paris, France – Black, white, bombshell red and pink are the colors upon which couture star Georges Chakra paints his story for the new season of glamour. His Fall Winter 2016/17 collection takes advantage of this palette and gives women an outer appearance that equals the confidence they feel inside.

The collection starts with sensible set of trousers in black worn with a short-cropped jacket in white crepe and with a long tail that bellows out into a pleated train in the back. From there Chakra quickly moves into his section of cocktail dresses. Short, they generally reveal the arms and of course fall above the knees. We find in the first dress the many of the secrets that would unfold through the collection: pleating, crystals and medium-sized, but very visible belts.

Very quickly we see the details and more embellishments appear during the progression of the show. They include feathers, ruffles, appliqués, embroideries, etc. When all is taken into complete consideration, one sees that this particular collection could have been more favored perhaps with a “lighter and less detailed” treatment of the dresses.

Beyond that we find an assembly of sheath gowns, trains and slimming trousers. The embroidery work is impeccable. And the favorite look of this collection happens to be one that combines subtlety and elaboration of detail.  It the coat with the long slim V-drop neckline. The arms billow out into a spectacular volume. Its waist is cinched but from there, it enjoys a dramatic A-line bottom half that sweeps the floor. In a pastel blue-light mint tone, it is finished with gold thread embroideries. The look is completed with a simple pair of black trousers. The result is a very fine one.
