Wow, Wow, Wow.
These are the words that spring to mind when looking at the latest Chanel show. The fashion elite were left speechless after all the whispers as to how Lagerfeld would top last seasons show (a Chanel arctic setting). Lagerfeld always shows in the Grand Palais but this season his classic extravagant decor was taken to new levels. The building was transformed into a fantastical monochrome maze of a French garden with three fountains.
A huge variety of beautiful models walked this astounding catwalk in some classic, gorgeous attire (pastels, feathers, tweeds, lace, embellishment) to the awe of the vast audience.
The show culminated with Ines de la Fressange walking out to applause and cheering with the atmosphere elevating almost above a fashion show- perhaps to the scale that fashion shows once were.
A total spectacle- as ever!
