Karl Lagerfeld is undefeatable. He does the unthinkable. He goes beyond belief. And unless you’re some sort of intergalactic superhero, you’ll already know why tweets, Instagrams and Facebook posts were being swooned with the Chanel buzz yesterday morning.
The location/atmosphere: Paris’ Grand Palais was transformed into a ritzy Chanelhypermarket, where just about everything from sweets, eggs, and branded coffees and teas were displayed for an exuberant mix of guests to indulge into (and steal away with their designer shopping trollies) before the show commenced.
Standout looks included: Oversized tweed coats, baby pink knits, metallic and multicolored sneakers, a classic pink skirt-suit (very Coco and appeared a suited and booted gentleman on hand), and corsets with narrow waists complementing balloon sleeves.
The accessories: Asides feather dusters, shopping bags and ‘lait de coco’ bottle being carried by models, the long pearl necklaces with padlocks.
