The fashion shuttle takes off from the Grand Palais
For Karl Lagerfeld and his team the imposing beauty of the Grand Palais is never enough.
For this new show, a clearly branded rocket awaits the public Chanel, positioned in the center of the room.
Classic garments are reborn
A Maison like Chanel it also has the task of passing on the tradition that made it famous in almost a century of work. One of the cornerstones of all the collections is indeed the Tailleur, revised each time in a different way.
The iconic silhouette of the suit breaks down: the jacket becomes a vest, the skirt remains short but is combined with Bermuda shorts that reflect the weft of the sleeves.
It is a game of joints, which lights up thanks to the glitter accessories, including boots and tights.
And even the vintage becomes futuristic
Thermal blankets meet elegant hoods: the result is short and padded capes, in the metallic shades of pink and silver.
They cover the shoulders, taking the style straight to another planet.
On the catwalk there is room for everyone (or almost)

But that's not all: it comes to illuminate the room with its total black Mariacarla Boscono, while in the middle of the show the little one enters Hudson Kroening, the brand's small mascot.
