Chanel: 3 Highlights to Remember

Chanel's ready-to-wear and Couture runway shows are the cream-of-the-crop of Paris Fashion Week and always make for a stylish and impressive momentum. Here's what Karl Lagerfeld had to offer for his new Spring/Summer 2018 women's ready-to-wear collection.

Jungle Fever

For the house's last Couture show, Chanel was all about La Parisienne, raising a replica of the Eiffel Tower under the glass dome of the Grand Palais in Paris. This time around, Karl Lagerfeld took us to warmer shores for his Spring/Summer 2018 ready-to-wear collection and unveiled an impressive runway show setting: an exotic, natural landscape, full of lush greenery, rocky cliffs, and water falls.

It's All About Tweed 

Tweed has always been very dear to Gabrielle Chanel, and Karl Lagerfeld has kept her style legacy for decades, always including Chanel's favorite fabric in his ready-to-wear and Haute Couture collections. This season, the tweed numbers came with rough, fringed hems, and were declined in soft pastel colors, such as mint green, sky blue, and pale yellow.

Plastic Is Fantastic 

As we all know, tropical places often imply warm and heavy rain showers – and in this Chanel's got you covered! Karl Lagerfeld's love for transparent, plastic accessories didn't go unnoticed this season. First of all, there were these transparent knee-high PVC rain boots that came along with see-through shopping bags and safari hats. In addition, Karl Lagerfeld enjoyed superimposing short, transparent waterproof jackets on his many desirable tweed numbers.
