Staging the most lavish French garden party, Karl Lagerfeld sent his latest Chanel Couture collection down a runway of fountains, elaborate trellises, and thousands of English roses. Mirroring the theme of the set, the collection included ornate beading, feathered ensembles, floral embellished booties, and rose-topped veils accessorizing every look.
The occasion also marked Kaia Gerber’s Couture Week debut, following her breakout runway season last September. The 16-year-old previously walked Chanel’s Spring 2018 ready-to-wear show, but this marked her first couture show ever. For her big debut, Kaia walked the runway in a beaded and feathered blush pink dress with matching boots.
In fact, feathers, tulle, and elaborate beading took center stage at the show—making for a number of potential Oscars gowns this season.
Replacing last season’s highly-coveted glitter boots, the Spring 2018 Couture looks were topped off with lucite-heeled boots that were adorned with intricate floral beading.
Most jaw-dropping of all, however, was the grand finale look. Accompanied by Karl Lagerfeld’s 9-year-old muse Hudson Kroenig (who threw rose petals from a basket, making for the cutest flower boy moment ever), the final look featured a white suit complete with a dramatic feathered gown overlay. Making for the dreamiest of bridal looks, it was topped with a feathered headpiece and white veil.
Now that’s one way to make an exit.
