Everything to know from Chanel’s Metiers d’Art show in Hamburg
From the grand show venue to Kaia Gerber hitting the runway.
For its latest Metiers d’Art show, Chanel unveiled its Pre-Fall 2018 collection in Hamburg, Germany today. From the stunning venue to the top models and star studded front row, here’s everything to know from the fashion house’s latest show.
Taking place at Hamburg’s newly-opened Elbphilharmonie concert hall, the Metiers d’Art show transformed a grand orchestra theater into its runway. The building, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, is one of the German city’s largest structures. This also marks the first time Karl Lagerfeld has ever staged a fashion show in his hometown.
THE FRONT ROW
Karl Lagerfeld’s A-list muses—including Kristen Stewart, Lily-Rose Depp, and Tilda Swinton—were all in attendance for the occasion, watching on from the front row in Chanel looks.
Runway breakout star Kaia Gerber walked her second ever Chanel show, sporting two Pre-Fall looks on the runway. Anna Ewers, Soo Joo Park, Grace Elizabeth and more also hit the catwalk.
Inspired by German culture of the 1960s, Chanel’s Pre-Fall 2018 collection included a lineup full of mini skirts paired with black opaque tights. Each of the mod-inspired looks was topped off with a newsboy cap, some of which were adorned with a black lace veil. Chanel’s signature tweed suits, dresses, and skirts were also included in the collection, as well as an array of cozy knitwear pieces.
Taking his final bow, Karl Lagerfeld walked the runway with his mini muse, nine-year-old Hudson Kroenig. The boy wore the chicest black double-breasted suit along with one of the newsboy caps worn on the catwalk.
