The Only Looks You Need To See From Chanel’s Couture Show
As with every Chanel Couture show, a deluge of breathtaking confections came down the runway at the Grand Palais in Paris today as Karl Lagerfeld presented his Fall 2016 Haute Couture collection. An atelier was the set, and models sauntered through forms, fabrics and cutting tables giving the illusion of a just-completed fitting before revealing the inspired creations, which ranged from intricately embroidered suiting to graphic outerwear to fantastically adorned evening wear. Altogether the feeling was a futuristic riff on Victorian, with up-to-there suede boots, lengthy gloves, curls piled atop black bows, and kohl-rimmed doll eyes. Here, the 14 most remarkable looks to lust after—we’ll be dreaming of these all day.
