Whilst the latest AW ready-to-wear trends made their debut down the 'aisles' it remained clear that Lagerfeld was maintaining his youthful and more urban approach to the styles of the future and the present. The concept showcased within the colossal interior of Paris's Grand Palais by Chanel suggests that urban, fashion-forward model, Cara Delevigne is influencing fashion mastermind, Karl Lagerfeld to start entertaining a much younger audience, such as the 21 year old herself. As Karl lures to turn around Chanel's image, in some light it portrays a fanciful yet absurd future where the 'Chanel Woman' is more youthful and whilst I don't think we will be seeing Trucker/Flat caps take to the Catwalk any time soon, we can see that as times are changing, the younger generation are becoming a huge part in boosting the sales of the most non-chalant and timeless Parisian brand in the world. Karl Lagerfeld left us unaware of what is to come in the future for Chanel, but as always Karl ensured that the iconic Chanel suit made its righteous appearance in a beautiful bubblegum pink and white tweed mix. Other tweed garments boasted a mixture of coloured threads with pink, green, yellow and brown seemingly being the most prominent colours on the catwalk.
Who wants a pair of Chanel Trainers...I do!
