Karl Lagerfeld showcased Chanel’s spring-summer 2016 haute couture collection in a zen garden set in Paris’ Grand Palais.
The nature-friendly theme easily came through in the aesthetics: a color palette entirely made of neutrals (like ivory, sand, taupe and mocha) & cork platform shoes.
Sporting their hair in “coiled chignons”, the models walked down the unusual runway wearing Chanel’s signature tweed with long skirts and rounded shoulders, or evening dresses richly embellished with rhinestones, feathers, flower appliqués and even wood.
A beautiful collection, that unfortunately looks eco-friendly only on the surface.
