Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel: wood, zen and serenity


Known for his extravagant runway settings, designer Karl Lagerfeld led fashionistas into a serene garden on Tuesday, celebrating all things nature at the Chanel haute couture catwalk show in Paris. Having previously turned the Grand Palais into an airport, supermarket and brasserie, the veteran designer, who has been at the creative helm of Chanel since 1983, sent models out of an erected wooden house down a garden path amid a neat green lawn. Evening wear consisted of embroidered strapless satin dresses and top and trouser combinations, worn with sparkling sheer capes. Lagerfeld’s nature theme was evident in the embroidery on dresses, including colorful flowers and wooden birds as well as in the shoes: rounded cork wedges. The colour palette offered various shades of beige, ivory and gold but there were also dabs of black and dark blue as well as multi-coloured dresses. Lagerfeld dressed his Chanel bride, a regular feature at his haute couture shows, in a strapless dress embroidered with chiffon, beads, rhinestones, leather and wood shavings, worn with a hooded jacket with a train. The show ended with the panels of the wooden house opening up to reveal the models, which included Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner, posing on the structure’s three floors.
