Chanel’s magical Spring/Summer ’18 show

A Chanel runway show is never anything short of spectacular and this time around it was not one but six cascading waterfalls formed the backdrop for the iconic maison’s Spring/Summer 2018 show.

Never one to disappoint, Karl Lagerfeld transported guests to the tranquil Gorges du Verdon in Provence by transforming the Grand Palais – which has recently been home to a replica Eiffel Tower and space rocket for prior Chanel shows – into a verdant wonderland. Models walked above water as the ten-metre high waterfalls flowed under a boardwalk which wrapped around over 2,000 seats for guests.

As for the collection, fitting perspex earrings shaped in to giant raindrops and high fashion raincoats made an appearance, but a fashion-forward ode to the house’s founder, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel was clearly present. Structured silhouettes, tweed ensembles and a black and white colour palette appeared on the runway.
