A rocketship in the Grand Palais? Pharrell Williams on the front row? For everything else you need to know about the Chanel Fall/Winter 2017 show, hop on board this odyssey and let Savoir Flair run you through the can’t-miss details from one of the biggest shows of Paris Fashion Week.
A Space Odyssey
Karl Lagerfeld returned to the Grand Palais for today’s show, transforming it into a space station. For the grand finale, a rocketship was even lifted off the ground as if heading straight for outer space.
A pink insulation blanket used as a cape? Tweed metallic shorts for winter? If Karl Lagerfeld says so, why not?
The Little (Chanel) Prince
As is the case every season, Karl Lagerfeld’s little prince, Hudson Kroenig, was part of the modeling cast. He wore a cream-and-white ensemble, which was accessorized with a mini ‘Gabrielle’ shoulder bag.
There is only one way to describe Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection: sparkly and shiny. Lagerfeld’s headband-and-choker combos were used to add a futuristic and chic touch to the looks, which were complemented by eye-catching footwear. There’s no doubt that the brand’s sparkly boots, which are modern and classic at the same time thanks to a signature black toe cap, will take over your Instagram feed for the next few months.
The models wore super-cool, oversized hand muffs, which were hung around the neck. Next season, match them to your coat for maximum style credits and the perfectly aristocratic touch to your winter look.
Makeup was futuristic with splashes of silver shadow adorning eyelids to add to the show’s outerspace feel. Eyes were further defined with 60s-inspired floating liner in the socket crease and doll lashes on the bottom lashline.
Hair was coiffed to perfection to make for big, beautiful, bouffant ‘dos with a retro vibe – perfectly complementing the makeup look.
