Karl Lagerfeld Elaborates on French Chicness

Karl Lagerfeld dubbed his latest Fall 2015 the “French Collection.” The models came marching out, and sat themselves down at a different booth or table, while typical French waiters swanned around, taking their orders. A cap-toe, square-heel slingback designed by Gabrielle Chanel herself with classic doyenne appeal was employed throughout to complement his quilted puffer coats, sheer black cocktail dresses and tweed suits. Handbags, included a quilted style dotted with tiny gold forks and knives. The models wore their hair pulled off the face by black headbands, morning-after black cat eye makeup and a devil may care attitude. Karl’s girls looked French for sure — but above all, they looked incredibly spontaneous and chic.

Cafe society was was central to Coco Chanel’s life, where anyone who was somebody including, artists, actors, writers and intellects alike mingled regularly in the city of light. With this in mind Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into Brasserie Gabrielle, the chicest of the grand Parisian cafes, complete with the traditional mosaic tiled flooring to stage his latest Chanel fall 2015 collection for Chanel. The clever set featured models entering through revolving glass doors and making their way to their seats around white tablecloth banquettes, while waiters wearing bow ties served coffee from behind a wood paneled counter stacked with baskets of pastries, boiled eggs and toast. This buzzy scene was the perfect setting to showcase Chanel’s key demographic, the doyenne and the women who lunch, as well as their gamine counterparts.
