Last fashion show by Karl Lagerfeld is everywhere on the internet nowadays. Chanel lives on, yet the great designer who has been for 36 years linked to the house, has died. Watching the show, despite all the goodies happening in there, which I’ll be going in detail in second, I felt sad. Almost as if with his departure, Karl took with him the thrill and all the magic that he has built.

It’s funny how the last show under his name happened in a Switzerland like winter resort setting, Switzerland being Coco’s eternal place for rest. As for the show, magic as always. You could almost feel the breeze of icy air you would normally experience in a winter resort. And there, right in the middle of the fluffy street, the models walked beautifully in gorgeous coats and wide leg trousers. The collection carries an oversized, men’s style tailoring with chunky ’80s and even ’90s style logo jewelry look. The tweed shares the runway with knitted skirts and sweaters. And there’s the white. Simply mesmerizing, full white silhouettes, in either a dress or some fancy look with pants, top and coat, took the lead of the show. Even actress Penelope Cruz joined the fairies, dressed in a fluffy white dress and white winter shoes.

Speaking of celebs, there’s nothing better in fashion like a Chanel front row. Blackpink’s Jennie, Nana Komatsu, Kristen Stewart, Monica Bellucci, Claudia Schiffer, Gwei Lun-Me and more.

Karl Lagerfeld Explores Ancient Egypt for Chanel 2018/19 Métiers d’art

Chanel fashion shows always are this great opportunity to take a moment for yourself and enjoy the finer things in life. This time around, the Paris New-York 2018/19 Métiers d’art show, presented at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York on 4th December, took on a mission to explore the old days of Egypt. Hierglophyps, lots of gold accents, representative cuts and shapes (clothes-wise), makeup and hair, and the setup, all created a passage to going back in time.

Back to the clothes, I haven’t seen that much bright gold in a Chanel show ever! Collars, wristbands, hems, high knee boots and stylish shoes, trousers, tights, and jewelry. These are all pieces in this collection, that may come sometimes in other colors, but more than often, gold was the approach. The tweed costume might seem at first looking out of place next to the brightness of the gold, but the more you look, the better it stands. By the way, the costumes and singular pieces LOOK amazing! There’s also more color than usual, which is always a pleasent sight in a Chanel show.
