I am almost speechless…almost!
Chanel’s space/60’s/ski themed autumn/winter 2017 ready-to-wear show was most definitely out of this world. The collection was true to the brands original roots, full of beautiful knitwear and rich fabrics with stunning headbands, pendants and spacey boots. Slouchy coats, beautifully tailored trousers and simply or rather, complexly, exquisite dresses just make this my favourite collection of Paris fashion week. Karl has put very different styles and pieces in together in a genius way.
Below are my favourites.

I cannot say I loved, or at least liked, the star of the Chanel Couture show – the Chanel Couture bride. In my eyes, Chanel should always have an air of understatement and class. The dress below is over the top and reminds me of the old fashioned version of femininity Chanel herself tried to escape from. As Coco once said ‘luxury is the opposite of vulgarity’.
Fortunately the rest of the collection was pretty dreamy…
Of course I went as Karl Lagerfeld. I pretty much dress like him on a day-to-day basis so all I really needed to buy was the wig. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or bad, perhaps I should start wearing more colour…
My outfit for the evening…Topshop black boots and leather leggings, vintage rabbit gilet, Burberry calfskin black clutch.
