Wrapped in plastic? It’s fantastic! Springtime showers are no problem for the Chanel woman, because next season, she’ll be sporting lots and lots of plastique. Thigh-high boots, boater hats, overcoats, and even sneakers got the see-through treatment, which served to lighten up and youth-ify the house’s signature tweeds and knits, which were rendered in faintly sixties silhouettes. Karl Lagerfeld‘s team constructed a replica of the Gorges du Verdon (a river canyon in South-Eastern France), complete with fully-functional waterfall, in the Grand Palais to show his wares, which were worn by an A-list cast of supermodels (including Kaia, who opened the show). Especially groovy? The crystal jewels, jumbo, crystal-embellished bags, and lurex-threaded dresses.
