Bon anniversaire, Karl—the singular Lagerfeld is entering his 50th year designing for the brand, and although the Kaiser isn’t keen on talking dates, the celebration was clearly top of mind. The show highlighted the house’s total expertise in fur, and in that realm, there was no scrimping in sight. The scene: the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, where Igor Stravinsky famously debuted his scandalous ballet, The Rite of Spring, in 1913. A representation of Giorgio de Chirico paintings served as the backdrop.
Every single look was fur-adorned, and the vast majority of them were legitimately lust-worthy. There was a floor-sweeping hooded coat, fabulous trailing fur scarfs, and a fur mini dress. Even a ballgown’s skirt was entirely constructed of the stuff, and if that’s not decadent, we don’t know what is. Our favorites were the snowy black and white versions donned by Lindsey Wixson, Jamie Bochert, and Marjan Jonkman mid-show. Is it winter in Australia? Because we require an excuse to wear these immédiatement.
