Chanel Spring/Summer 2016 - PFW

Welcome to Chanel Airlines.

Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into a mock airport terminal complete with baggage check, numbered gates, a departures and arrivals board (listing past Chanel destination show locales), and baggage carts stamped with double-C logos.

Edie Campbell opened the show in a multi-colored tweed jumpsuit with silver sandals and a silvery headband, toting a black Chanel rolling suitcase and carryall. One dress was patterned like an arrivals board, and a sweater and pair of knit pants was set in a repeating airplane pattern.

There were baseball caps worn backwards, and models who had their hair pulled back into two low pigtails at the back of their neck. 

"Lagerfeld sent out an array of silvery sandals and lace-up boots, but the footwear that really caught the eye of guests were the light up velcro sandals. The second part of the show transitioned into bohemian looks with lightweight fabrics, tulle color block dresses with jackets and multiple layers at the hems. 

The show ended with Karl Lagerfeld coming out for his bow, and then being escorted by Cara Delevingne, and Hudson Kroenig who was dressed as a pilot. 

Karl Lagerfeld always coming up with out of the box themes for ways to show his collection. It's a show that I always look forward to twice a year. The Grand Palais has been transformed into some incredible experiences -- a Chanel grocery store, Antarctica, the dessert, around the globe, and much much more.

Now that New York and Paris Fashion Week have ended, and we've seen all the trends for next Spring, now it's time to look forward to awards season and I couldn't be more excited!
