5 things to know about the garden party at the Chanel couture 2018 showcase
And all of Karl's magic
What does a fashion designer do after they’ve staged shows in Hamburg, Germany, taken fashion editors on an imaginary trip to space and even figured out a way to bring the Eiffel Tower indoors? If you’re Karl Largerfeld, you go back to basics. The intricate, beautiful, and downright pretty pieces that make Chanel Couture, well, Chanel Couture. Today, the designer did just that for his latest Chanel couture 2018 show. Here’s what went down.
Inside the Chanel Couture 2018 showcase
The show took place in a beautiful French garden
....that was constructed inside Paris' Grand Palais. The set included a bubbling fountain, sandy pathways with trellises nearby, and thousands and thousands of English garden roses.
Kaia Gerber made her Couture debut
At just 16 years old, Gerber has stomped down various catwalks around the world, but this marks her first couture show ever. In a beaded and feathered blush pink dress the model looked like the most beautiful bird in the garden.
The red carpet stunners landed in the middle of the show
Do a quick scroll through more than 60 looks and you'd think Lagerfeld only showed tweed separates and glitter gowns, but there were a handful of colorful gems shown about halfway through the show that I expect will pop up on red carpets shortly (Oscars, anyone?).
The bride wore pants
Every season the Chanel couture show closes with a "bride" accompanied by kid model Hudson Kroenig. She generally wears a fanciful gown, but this season model Luna Bijl wore a sharp white suit and a feather topper. A matching feathered headpiece and white veil sat atop her head creating a modern, wedding-worthy look.
Bye-bye glitter boots, hello new It-shoe
We can't wait to see which street style darling gets her hands on these lucite-heeled boots first!
