The Grand Palais in Paris was converted into a casino for Karl Lagerfeld’s latest couture collection with 20 international celebrities and Chanel muses playing blackjack in the center of the presentation. They sat amid slot machines and roulette tables dressed in suits and evening dresses. Each was wearing an outfit tailored specifically for their personality.
The house also formally presented 67 couture looks inspired by Coco Chanel’s “Bijoux de Diamants” collection from 1932. But the suits had a very modern update – they were created with 3D lasering technology. Everything in the presentation was sharp, from the angular black bobs that topped the head of each model to the hems of the tulle that adorned the evening looks. The neutral palette allowed for focus on the fine details of the tailoring and the texture of the garments.
Kendall Jenner closed the show as a bride in a satin tuxedo with a tulle veil, a perfect example of Lagerfeld’s ability to display femininity within a more masculine way of dressing.
