Karl Lagerfeld took CHANEL on a vacation to the relaxing beachside at Grand Palais in Paris. Or, more accurately, a stunning man-made location consisting of a boardwalk, white sands and splashing waves. Models walked barefoot along the blue waters with colorful flat sandals in hand. This season, bold accessories stole the show. Oversized crystal necklaces spelling 'CHANEL' and CC marks on the plexi footwear and quilted shoulder bags. The French fashion house even introduced a new twist to the logo trend: split-up 'CHA' and 'NEL', which came in forms of mega-sized earrings, straw hats and cropped white shirts. Clothes were kept to light pastels and airy blacks, in laid-back, oversized silouhettes and flowy dresses. Even leggings made appearances. The classic tweed was transformed into deep-V blazers, boxy suits, relaxed shirt dresses and summery set-ups. Other stand-out pieces include geographic patterened swimsuits, lightweight cover-ups and bags in shape of beach volleyballs.
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.
