Nature: the annoying sound of bird you want to catch chirping and wet grass ruining your perfect pet-icure. Unfortunately for me, Daddy Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t agree with moi and holds the more common opinion that nature is beautiful.
On Tuesday in Paris, Daddy Karl Lagerfeld presented the spring couture collection dedicated to nature. Environmental sustainability is a reoccurring theme for Daddy; the Chanel spring 2013 presentation featured wind turbines and solar panels. Returning to this homage, this year, the Grand Palais featured a two-story wooden structure surrounded by a garden, made from real grass. No birds or small woodland creatures in sight though.
With hair resembling Princess Leia (aka the “Chanel croissant,” coined by hairstylist Sam McKnight) and cat-eye makeup, muse Kendall Jenner led the mod squad down the catwalk. The girl gang included Gigi Hadid wearing a in a gold column dress and cape, Bella Hadid with a loosely tied belt bag around her waist, Lindsey Wixson in silver tweed with voluminous capped sleeves, and other non-muse models. Per usual, Daddy’s male muse Baptiste Giabiconi closed the runway in a golden tweed jacket and patchwork trousers. At the end of the show, the wooden slats of the house opened revealing a gaggle of models and Daddy Lagerfeld, who emerged holding hands with a Chanel bride (My new mommy?).
Every look featured the same shoe silhouette in a variety of colors: round-toe cork wedge with a curved heel. Tying in (literally) the eco-friendly theme, fabrics were embroidered with wood shavings, small tiles or patterns of bees, birds and flowers. The common silhouette tying the collection together was long, lean skirts, cut mid-shin and worn with a rounded sleeve jackets or capes.
While I was not allowed front row out of fear I’d sunbathe in the grass, Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart, Lily Collins and Jemima Kirke were front row guests at the Chanel Couture Fall 2015 show. Also, stirring up rumors of my love interest was Leo, Cara Delevingne’s pup who sat obediently in the mod’s lap.
P.S – While I wasn’t front row, I was there in spirit and my portrait can be spotted as a picture inside Daddy’s tiepin.
