In a winter wonderland at the Grand Palais surrounded by snow covered trees and ski chalets, the final Chanel show designed by Karl Lagerfeld was the perfect setting to honor the legendary designer. Cara Delevingne opened the show in black and white tweed pant suit, matching fedora hat and houndstooth coat. The 90s outfit was followed by more flowy wide-leg trousers, checkered jackets and layers of statement necklaces. It was an effortless balance of masculine and feminine shapes; the boxy, strong-shoulder silhouettes were softened by cinching of the waists with Chanel belts and sparkly pearl jewelry. The collection was less of an experient with color as it was with texture; furry boots, fuzzy CC logos on belt backs and fluffy white skirts added warmth and depth to the winter outfits.
Established by the revolutionary legend Gabrielle Coco Chanel, the luxury fashion house has been a long-standing icon in the ever-evolving industry. The luxurious brand is known for its simplistic elegant pieces that stand the test of time. Coco's signature pieces such as tweed suit skirts and quilted handbags still remain as the centerpieces of the brand. However, another significant figure, Karl Lagerfeld, has worked his magic onto the brand by adding personality to CHANEL. His touch of edginess, humor, fantasy, sexines and sophistication is obvious at each collection; every year, Lagerfeld pushes the industry with his fusion of fantasy with timeless fashion pieces.
