The legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld presented Chanel‘s Spring Summer 2018 womenswear collection, in a landscape of waterfalls under the vault of the Grand Palais, on Tuesday October 4th, during the last day of Paris Fashion Week. The rising star on the modeling scene (and Cindy Crawford’s daughter) Kaia Gerber opened the show, followed by supermodels such as Anna Ewers, Arizona Muse, Catherine McNeil, Mariacarla Boscono, Rianne van Rompaey, Soo Joo Park, Stella Maxwell, and Vittoria Ceretti to name just a few.
“Broad shoulders, a nipped-in waist, and sharp lines: the suit of the Spring‑Summer 2018 collection reveals a new silhouette. The iridescent ivory tweed jacket and skirt are trimmed with twisted braid. The structured jacket with a mandarin collar offers a clean, pared-down look. The fastenings are invisible, the pockets discreet, and the play of seams subtle: Karl Lagerfeld has stripped back the ornamentation to foreground the lines of the garment. The slightly flared three-quarter-length sleeves show off the stacked bracelets. The hem of the skirt falls halfway down the thigh, skimming the top of the transparent thigh boots.
By playing with the transparency and the sparkling effect of the materials, the aquatic influences reflect on the accessories of the Spring‑Summer 2018 collection.“
