Chanel Fall 2016 ft Karl Lagerfeld, Willow Smith, Pharrell

Karl Lagerfeld takes us inside his Chanel Fall 2016/17 "Front Row Only" Ready to Wear Collection at Paris Fashion Week where all 3,000 guests were invited to sit front row. The decor was reminiscent of the salons at 31 Rue Cambon, where Gabrielle Chanel presented her designs.

"People complain they can't see the clothes because they are too far away; this season everyone is front row"  - Karl Lagerfeld.

We loved all the new accessories. Boaters, helmets and riding hats in tweed, felt or leather were fastened by straps adorned with byzantine crosses, pearls or camellias. Models walked down the runway in boots with horizontal lacing or loafers with heels that accentuated a modern attitude.  Witty accessories such as cat cuffs, emoticon jewelry, and bobbin and coat-hanger handbags punctuated the silhouette.

Post show, Karl Lagerfeld told us about the gorgeous beauty look of the show by Tom Pecheux, and why he loves working with the hottest "models of the moment" Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid.  Featuring interviews with Chanel ambassadress Willow Smith and music mogul Pharrell Williams.

Chanel SS16 Backstage Karl Lagerfeld, Cara Delevingne

For Spring 2016 Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into a magnificent mock Chanel Airport complete with a baggage check, numbered gates, an arrivals board and baggage carts with double-C logos. Backstage post-show Karl explained why he was inspired by airports and the love of travel -

 "...even for expensive Ready-to-Wear and high fashion, you have to be inspired by daily life, clothes have to fit with the life of today, we are not creating something living in an ivory tower that has no relationship to reality "

We are in love with Karl's airport themed collection - especially all the chic accessories including the new Chanel "Coco Cabin Case" and the light up Velcro sandals. The beauty look at the show was all about the eyes - models came out wearing electric blue eyeshadow or giant mirrored sunglasses. If you are as obsessed with these Chanel sunglasses as we are check out the new Chanel Eyewear E-Commerce boutique launched online November 4th in the US.

For his finale bow Karl came out with his seven-year-old godson Hudson Kroenig (who was dressed as a pilot) and supermodel Cara Delevingne who is one of Karl's favorite models and close personal friend.  Watch our exclusive Chanel Spring Summer 2016 backstage video featuring top models Kendall Jenner and Cara Delevingne; interviews with Karl Lagerfeld, Kyle Anderson, Leigh Lezark, Liu Wen, Caroline de Maigret.
