Chanel 2018 spring/summer Haute Couture Paris show
As is customary, the house’s signature boucle suits were first on the catwalk. In shades of periwinkle, leaf green and buttercup, Coco Chanel’s iconic jacket was reinterpreted with a cropped fit and exaggerated shoulders. Tweed city shorts and sportier split skirts completed the ensembles, while each look on the catwalk was also crowned with a bouquet-topped veil.
Karl Lagerfeld’s pick of the bunch for next season included rose satin styles with tulip-shaped skirts and short floral lace dresses overlaid with long embellished organza. Bodices also blossomed with sparkling floral crystals, while other skirts were pleated with the uniform precision of petals.
