With every Chanel collection he debuts, Karl Lagerfeld seems to one-up himself. But the iconic designer just proved the easiest way to impress the fashion world is by turning to the past. Karl staged his Autumn '16 runway at the Grand Palais in Paris. Gold chairs faced back-to-back in a traditional salon, so every guest got a front-row seat.
Though that adds a little pressure — the focus being solely on the clothes — Mr. Lagerfeld pulled off the stunt, opting to show classic tweed sets in a mostly black-and-white colour scheme, layers of pearl necklaces, and embellished strap-on hats, sure to become fast favourites. Read on to catch all the little details, see who showed to sit front row, and watch as your favourite It girls like Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Lindsey Wixson, and more turned into modern-day Cocos.
