Chanel closed the 2018 autumn – winter Paris Fashion Week recreating a spectacular autumnal landscape inside the Grand Palais, being conquered by the “little witches of the woods” of the house who wore coats from top to bottom and plane shoe only.
In the last seasons, sporty and dancing shoes have conquered the feet of the international runaways and catwalks, leaving behind the idea about high hills are the only synonym of elegance, as it was already proven by Chanel with the proposal on the low hills boots from last year, including purpurin or transparent that were a total business success.
Characteristics of Chanel´s new clothing line for Paris Fashion Week
In this occasion, the brand bet on “Oxford” style shoes in black and a series of musketeer boots with wear out golden spikes on a dark background or a discrete printing, similar to camouflage but also very bright.
Also, clothing and its silhouette became completely rectilinear through coats and squirts in “tweed” to the feet, which are combined with short jackets in a series of very wintery styles decorated with great wool scarves and jerseys, along with sleeves of hair.
There was also a pseudo-male collection sort of speak, with clothing with hoods, wide boot pants in bright fabrics mermaid style. Although, the catwalk proposal closed with a line of black dresses with 20´s style, long and straight cleavage above the knees or at the ankles which were combined with accessories like pink gloves and embroidered leather handbags.
Recognized models on Chanel´s catwalk
Among the models included in Chanel´s runaway were as usual Kaia Gerber; Cindy Carwford´s daughter with over three Paris Fashion Weeks with great success, including also the Dutch model Marjan Jonkman, French model Camille Hurel, and also the Italian models Greta Varlese and Vittoria Ceretti as some of the most requested in the industry at the moment.
In the same way, the model Caroline de Maigret; image of Chanel´s house and British actress Keira Knightley who wore a high fashion dressed from the spring – winter 2018 collection were some of Chanel´s guests.
Like this, Paris closes the Fashion Week after New York, London and Milan, where over 60 brands introduced in the catwalks their collection “Prét-á-porter” for autumn- winter 2018 collection, as an event that requires quite an investment but it looks it still has great influence, impact and profit generation in fashion business, as you can read in this article about Fashion Weeks.
