Chanel’s haute couture fashion show is always one of the most eventful golden dates of Couture Fashion Week. Fact. From the set thematics to the thousands of hand-sewn sequins on each garment to the hot-topic models who lead the charge on the runway, Karl Lagerfeld knows how to whip up a stylish scene. This season, S/S 16, didn’t disappoint, with its underlying rally for sustainability in fashion and eco-chic essence, which served as a clever juxtaposition to the decadent gowns that wafted over pristine blades of grass. Surprised? Don't be. From casinos to supermarkets to airports, Chanel is expert at tempting eyebrows to raise on the stone faces of its front row.
Notably Chanel's former star model Cara Delevingne sat comfortable front row with her canine BF alongside Diane Kruger, Anna Wintour, and Clémence Poésy (everyone’s favourite Parisienne girl next door). The fashion house is never short of A-listers to showcase the new season collections in a real life capacity.
The mantle was passed to the next generation of Karl’s It girls: Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, and Kendall Jenner who served as elegant talking points. The three L.A. girls looked very much at home on the verdant couture catwalk and swapped their yoga leggings for crystal-bead adorned dresses and otherworldly evening wear that few will get their hands on. While couture has notably been much more relaxed this season, it looks like the athleisure spirit has crept into couture.
Blogger extraordinaire, Susie Lau of Style Bubble Tweeted the large-scale set that opened out its shutters to reveal the fleet of stunning models wearing a palette of nudes, creams and French clay hues.
Long-term best friend of Chanel's creative director, Cara Delevingne has fronted multiple campaigns for the brand but has transitioned her career towards acting. That certainly didn't put the star off from a stylish pit stop.
Coco would quietly approve, no doubt. All this talk of fashion finery is making us thirsty for shopping, join us over at BrownsFashion.com for a little spree.
