The last day of Paris Fashion Week started with the Chanel Ready-to-Wear Spring 2019 show. Traditionally, the head creative director of the house Karl Lagerfeld surprised fans with the elegance of the looks, but also with large-scale scenery that goes beyond the imagination.
This time, at his favorite venue, the Grand Palais exhibition hall in Paris, the designer recreated a blue ocean, with an endless white sand beach stretching along the rows, lifeguard towers and tiki huts, which looked as if they had been ripped from the pages of a tourist brochure for Bali or Goa.
The ocean theme continued in the collection itself, offering us to combine traditional tweed blazers and cardigans with knitted leggings, and dresses bearing prints of beach umbrellas, sand texture and waves—with straw hats and pouches in the form of shells. Black evening gowns in the final series of looks were supplemented with pairs of quilted clutches, with their chains criss crossed.
