Known for its elaborate sets—an airport, grocery store or cobbled streets are just a few recent callbacks—Chanel’s fall-winter 2016 show kept the backdrop stripped down with a white set. Creative director Karl Lagerfeld let the clothes speak for themselves with an outing full of classic Chanel tweeds and adorned in layers of pearl necklaces featuring the interlocking C logo. With over 90 looks, there is plenty to take in.
From sugary pink tweed suits to the boater hats in variety of hues and riding boots, there is a hint of equestrian for the Chanel woman this season. The camellia flower—another house signature—was used as a large digital prints. Roomy jackets with quilted detailing brought some volume to the show while a play on the trench coat in khaki featured subtle pleating. For those more extravagant occasions in a Chanel woman’s life, there are ruffled frocks and airy gowns with golden bands.
