MAJESTIC WATERFALLS AT CHANEL SPRING/SUMMER 2018 SHOW

Every Chanel show starts with the incredible setting in the Grand Palais, which, over the years, has been transformed into a countryside barn, an underwater world, the Eiffel Tower, a supermarket or a Paris street. This season, it was made to look like the Gorges du Verdon, complete with huge rock walls, green vegetation, waterfalls and a wooden raised boardwalk where the models appeared. Quite clearly, this collection was inspired by water and waterproof garments as seen on clear plastic hoods, ponchos, capes and knee-high boots. These clever outerwear pieces allow your beautiful clothes to be seen without them being ruined by raindrops. Even the classic Chanel bags had their own plastic see-through cover.

Other, even more subtle, water references were seen in the fringes which looked like strands of seaweed, wet-looking textures like white and blue vinyl on jackets, raindrop earrings and shiny metallic tweed. With this collection, Lagerfeld mixes a younger and fresh wardrobe with the classics of the house as seen in tweed fringed cropped tops and flirty mini skirts. A lot of fun was put in accessories, which were colorful, gelatinous and bedazzled. Another great collection filled with elegance, humor and life!
