From runways inspired by a French supermarket and brasserie to a Chanel airliner, and staging shows in Cuba, Edinburgh and Versailles—there’s no doubt that Karl Lagerfeld knows how to put on a good show.

In front of an A-list audience including Chanel ambassadors Willow Smith and Caroline de Maigret, models strutted their way through women at work in the atelier, spools of fabric and dress forms. The collection was nothing short of exquisite from the tweed suits and dresses to a show-stopping pink brocade jacket with a feathered train for the finale.
