The cliffs and waterfalls of the Gorges du Verdon in the South of France were transported all the way up to the Grand Palais to act as yet another mind blowing backdrop. As the wind actually blew inside the show area and water drops spread all over the runway Karl Lagerfeld’s SS2018 girls were dressed for the occasion in plastic boots and boater hats that protected the luxurious clothing underneath. New fashion darling (and thus Karl Lagerfeld favorite) Kaia opened the show sporting a frayed end tweed suit that exposed her midriff, dark eyeshadow, bright red lips and transparent chunky earrings to match. More cropped tweed tops followed as well as tweed dresses with accentuated shoulders in shades of yellow, green and blue. A selection of wool and leather coats made up for a slight winter-y section. But those were quickly followed by airy (sheer) skirts and hairy (fluffy) sweaters. Denim trousers and a strapless top made up for the most casual look as aqua printed bathing suits and airy beach dresses lead up to an all white finale of delicate, wedding-ish ensembles.
