Let's start by discussing the scenery. I'll admit, I was a bit distracted by the clothes because the runway was amazing. For this show, the runway appeared to be a Chanel gallery. We see the classic Chanel camellia flower adorning the walls of this exhibit as well as a giant marble statue of a Chanel perfume bottle coming up from the ground. Behind glass sits a giant Chanel classic flap bag among other amazing pieces of artwork. Check it out for yourself in the video at the bottom of this post.
Head designer (and legend) Karl Lagerfeld played it safe when he came to shapes and fabrics. We saw the classic tweed suit in a few different hues this season including pink and pastel shades. I was excited to see a few off the shoulder pieces though, because I feel that it is different for Chanel. There were some pretty colorful, sporty pieces that stood out among a sea of tweed. We also saw painted leather and denim, this was new and tied back into the theme of an art gallery.
