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 Spring Summer 2016 backstage with Karl Lagerfeld and supermodel Cara Delevingne in Paris. 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.

“No jewelry, no handbags, no gloves, this was all about attitude and silhouette, shape and cuts”, Karl Lagerfeld gives us an inside look at his Chanel Spring 2014 Haute Couture Collection in Paris.  Cara Delevingne opened the Chanel show wearing sporty running shoes with her gorgeous couture gown – a look that is so modern, so cool and so now.

The Chanel Spring 2014 Couture collection was stunning, but it was those sporty, glittery running shoes that everyone was talking about after the show.  As Karl explains, “it gives a new modern attitude about Couture”.

The Chanel running shoes took over 30 hours to make and according to British Vogue will only be sold with the full couture outfit. A spokesperson for Chanel told British Vogue “They are only available as part of the Haute Couture look. However, we always have similar versions in our commercial and ready-to-wear collections,” meaning that you will be able to get your hands on the lust worthy trainers – or very similar – at Chanel stockists worldwide this spring.
