Fashion Week, Chanel

The world revolves around Chanel, or at least it did today, when Karl Lagerfeld dropped a globe into the set at the Grand Palais runway for his latest show for Paris Fashion Week. (The globe even illuminated with the locations of the label’s boutiques.) The clothing also served as a reminder of Chanel’s dominance: Like the globe’s night sky, the designs were dark, brooding, and sprinkled with celestial sparkle. Much of the clothing had its place in the evening hours, including sheer layered dresses and an asymmetric gown that captured the relaxed elegance that makes Lagerfeld king of the fashion world.
