a huge rotating globe welcomes the public inside the majestic space of the Grand Palais to attend the Chanel fashion show.
Against the profiles of the five continents school’s geography flags have been replaced with the double C logo marking all the Chanel boutiques around the world. Countless! The maison celebrates the 100th anniversary of the opening of the boutique set up by Mademoiselle Coco in Deauville in 1913 in a truly global and joyful spirit. The success of Chanel knows no boundaries across the world, so much so that it has even become a popular name for newborns. At the helm of all this, Karl Lagerfeld controls Chanel’s galactic flight with magic and smart savoir-faire that shows no sign of abating

dark colors are the palette of choice for fitted tweed suits comprising long-line close-fitting jackets and A-lined skirts. Robe coats feature a new silhouette with asymmetric hem, short on the front and calf-length at the back. Jackets are lengthened and become almost overcoats: they are waisted, have statement sleeves or a trapeze shape and cover short pleated miniskirts. Short overcoats/jackets are straight and double-breasted and have the corner of the front hem turned up creating a triangular shape that shows the contrasting lining. Gaiters in black nappa leather running high up the knee complement the entire collection whilst adding a dark edge to a sharp and contemporary look
