The last show created by Karl Lagerferd, who passed away on February 19th, started by 1 minute of silence in memory of him, his massive impact on the fashion industry, his brilliant ‘assaults‘ and his genius (unfortunately some people could not resist themselves from recording it with their mobile phone devices…).
Cara Delavigne opened the winter wonderland show and Penelope Cruz made her debut on the runway, in total white, angelic look, holding white rose in honor of Karl. Show finale with all of the models, walking in the rhythm of Heroes by Bowie, was just breath-taking.
Show was filled up with mono-color looks, but spiced up with combination of different kinds of check pattern, traditionally for Chanel, in tweed. I was amazed by details like jewellery and matching outfits hats and bags, lining of coats in patterns like check, zigzags. although runway was dominated by neutrals and whites, we could spot total looks in strong turquoise, pink or red.
