The streets of Paris formed the backdrop of Chanel’s extravagant fashion show this morning. No, Karl didn’t present his designs outside, he build his own Boulevard Chanel No.5 inside the Grand Palais. And that boulevard turned out to be a perfect fit with the streetwise clothing the designer presented. Some of his favourite stars and it models of the moment like Edie Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne and even Gisele (no last name needed) made their appearance strutting Karl’s optimistic collection. It involved full on tweed suits (for summer!), bright floral printed coats and matching boots, party dresses with metallic details, pinstripe ensembles and a wide range of white Victorian blouses. Socks were golden, as were sandals and belts. From punk rock to Saint Tropez chic; there were enough style variations to fashionably get you through any type of occasion. To stress the liberate feeling of the collection the finale involved a protest, led by Cara Delevingne holding a megaphone. Followed by all models carrying sings like ‘Tweed is better than tweet’, ‘Be your own stylist’ and ‘History is her story.’ Quotes not by far as strong as Karl’s own oneliners, but they added to the cheerful vibe of the show.
