Chanel at PFW

Chanel takes to the skies at Paris Fashion Week as Karl Lagerfeld set his sights higher than ever before with an airport-themed SS16 show. The Grand Palais was transformed into a mock airport terminal complete with baggage check, numbered gates, a departures and arrivals board and baggage trolleys stamped with double-C logos.

Even the clothes themselves fitted into a real life Gatwick scenario with some models going for the comfort factor dressed in baggy knitwear adorned with aeroplane print, and others ready to take to the air in style, in classic Chanel tweed two piece suits.

The show marks another fashion first for the designer house following their supermarket themed AW15 show, where the Grand Palais was transformed into Lagerfeld’s personal Tesco. Shelves were stacked with Chanel branded items, and candy coloured clothes marched down the aisles.

There seems to be no stopping the wacky yet wonderful creativity of the fashion house, and indeed no halt in the soaring success of each Lagerfeld muse (Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevinge, need we go on…). But the playful tone to this show in particular marks a more street-style, relatable direction for Chanel, and was a needed pop of fun into the Paris Fashion Week show line up. Take a look at some of the quirky and adorable looks we’re lusting after:
