It was a rampant forest covered under the glass domes of the Grand Palais in Paris, when Karl Lagerfeld presented his latest couture creations for the umpteenth time in an impressive setting.

An interpretation of Shakespeare's classic "A Midsummer Night's Dream" floated before the designer while designing the spring / summer 2013 collection, which he staged excitingly with grim details.

Stella Tennant opened the show in a white tweed jacket, combined to peep toe boots that reached up under the coat hem. These knee boots were seen in all sorts of variations on the Runway: Tweed and lace, as well as snakes or shiny metallic leather.

In other tweed costumes in white, cream, and black mini-dresses followed floral maxi dresses and lace robes. The focus of the cuts was on the shoulder, stealing similar panels of dresses, deep-seated epaulettes on blazers and white shirts under strapless dresses drawing attention to the shoulders.

Karl Lagerfeld translated the dreamy mood of the collection into Gothic appeal: deep black smudged eye make-up and the side of falling headdress of black and white feathers gave the designs a dark, mystical mood.

A contrasting mix combination: spring dresses in pink and white on black leather gloves and boots. A fabulous finale, which ended with two fairytale wedding dresses made ​​of tulle, lace and feathers. This is the ultimate interpretation of a dream, leading dark pretty princesses to go straight out of a fairy tale.

Signorefandi, mysteriously beautiful...
