All Aboard: Chanel Couture Show

Last week Karl Lagerfield showed us that the standard wooden floor ‘A to B’ catwalk is just not good enough (and why should it be?). Taking us sky high in Grand Palais with his Chanel Couture range, an array of intricate gowns flowed down the centre of… wait for it … an aeroplane! Full marks for creativity, double points for the amazing couture.

Led by a trail of Mohawks, we saw sophistication meet intergalactic shades of blue shimmery gowns, patent look blazers, ruffled hemlines and sheer maxi’s. The space raider is reborn.

Feather fascinators, oval neck coats and low-waist pockets were key features along with structured blazers, palazzo pants and embellished floor sweepers. The highlight: A long sleeve diamond encrusted mini, with puffball trail. Largerfield, we salute. 

Can’t wait to see where the next Chanel show will be held!
