Paris Fashion Week - Chanel

Karl Lagerfeld transformed Paris’s Grand Palais with 13 giant wind turbines and a floor of solar panels, although this was no eco show.

It opened with jackets and dresses scattered with oversized pearls, bell sleeves and pumped-up volume, or cropped as boleros. Then came shirt dresses over trousers, chambray denim, rainbow bouclé, a taffeta-fringed suit, a huge hula-hoop handbag and column dresses scattered with floral embroideries. As always, this mammoth collection (all 80-plus looks) was packed with ideas but it seemed to get a little lost this season.

In short The setting was spectacular even if the collection wasn’t one of Lagerfeld’s best, but among the many looks and ideas there were flashes of interest.
