In the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, a Parisian garden was created in the Grand Palais to host the Fall-Winter 2017/18 Haute Couture show.

Karl’s collection showcased the skills of the Chanel ateliers and the amazing craftspeople behind these incredible collections. The feather-makers, the embroiderers, the boot makers, the pleaters. All whose work brings Karl’s imagination and expressionist sketches to life.

Thick tweeds and a mostly dark palette; controlled compositions of feathers adorning sleeves and hems. Every look was topped off with a boater hat. Karl Lagerfeld is bringing the early 20th century hat back. The accessory was presented in a variety of tweeds, satin and leather.

Every model’s look featured an over-the-top rainbow eyeshadow, a bright and welcome contrast to the dark-hued collection. Which tied in nicely with the darker bold colour of the garments.

At the end of the show, Karl Lagerfeld received the highest honour of Paris. The city’s mayor Anne Hidalgo presented the designer with a Grand Vermeil medal, the highest distinction the city offers, for his work in the French capital.
