It was an ode to the traditional couture-house setting at the Chanel Fall 2016 runway show. Karl Lagerfeld, known for this storytelling set designs, went back to basics with a setless set, and instead kept things basic with gold chairs and a luxurious white carpet spread. Much like decades past, this was a typical layout where everyone was in their own front row, and models swarmed in and out of onlookers.
The traditional element stretched far beyond the interior of the Grand Palais as the Chanel Fall 2016 collection itself had elements of classic Coco. Pearls were layered in true Chanel style, and models were styled with a variety of boaters; did we mention the tweed! Oh so much tweed, Coco herself would’ve been proud!
A mix of suits, outerwear, accessories and dresses in multi-media fabrics made for a classic season, where the clothes spoke for themselves.
