Karl Lagerfeld Dreams a See-Through Chanel for Closing Paris Show

PARIS – Waterfalls and an 11-meter-high rock face protruding from the walls of the Paris Grand Palais recreated the Gorges du Verdon in southern France; the dramatic background Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld created to whisk away a select group of A-list fashionistas to a faraway watery paradise while simultaneously highlighting the two leading themes for the coming Spring-Summer 2018 season: see-through accessories and emerald-turquoise blues and greens.

Chanel has sought inspiration for its 2018 Spring-Summer season from blues and greens that seem to fuse with whites in an ever-changing palette of sun-drenched pastel colors.

Channel has also recovered Coco Chanel’s beloved tweed, this time revamped as geometrical mini-dresses, pantsuits, and sleeveless tops.

To update this venerable cloth to the 21st century, designer Lagerfeld brought to the catwalk crop tops and fringed shorts with embroidered pearls, along with Chanel’s offering for this season – completely see-through vinyl accessories.

The show also exhibited see-through versions of the class canotier hat, and a dazzling array of raincoats and capes.

Although Chanel considers its roots as important as seeking new clientele, many of its new pieces seemed like instant pret-a-porter items for pop and rap stars like Rihanna, or G-Dragon and Tommy Genesis, who were both present at the show.

Mini-dresses combined with over-sized blouses inspired by Coco’s white shirt retained her black lacing around the neck.

Another nod to the fashion house’s past were new versions of the “Gabrielle” handbag, which Chanel seeks to establish as one of this season’s battle horses.

The presentation offered over 60 looks and a vast choice of models on the catwalk: Gaia Kerber – Cindy Crawford’s 16-year-old daughter – opened the show, followed by Vittoria Ceretti, Camille Hurel, Greta Varlese, and Hudson Kroenig – Karl Lagerfeld’s 8-year-old godson – who walked the passarelle in a dark grey tweed jacket and trousers with a bag worn diagonally across his chest.

As always, Chanel closes Paris Fashion Week and the London, New York, and Milan 2018 Spring-Summer fashion cycle until February/March 2018.
