The leading Parisian Fashion House, Chanel brought the forest down to Paris Design Week in a spectacular Fall 2018 fashion show. The stage was imagined by fashion mastermind Karl Lagerfeld and took the resemblance of an incredibly magical forest, with real live trees, foliage and moss. Several celebrities attended the show, including such as Pharrell Williams, Carla Bruni, Lilly Allen and Keira Knightley. Ultimately, Lagerfeld showed why Chanel is one of the biggest brands in the world, so take a look at the best highlights.
Taking the season quite literally, the Chanel set embraced fall in every way possible—from leaf-covered invitations to leaf-covered floors. Karl Lagerfeld transformed Paris’ Grand Palais into a lifelike forest complete with tall trees that lined the runway and a backdrop that seemed to extend the Chanel forest infinitely.

As for the collection itself, models paraded through piles of leaves in an astounding total of 80 fall-ready looks that varied from Chanel’s classic tweed to fur coats, black lace gowns and oversized scarves.
While the show opened with an array of predominantly neutral looks in shades of black and grey, bright hues of blue, orange and pink were woven into the collection in the form of fingerless opera-length gloves and scarves.
The final twelve looks all featured black lace dresses paired with colourful statement-making gloves done in bright, unexpected shades of leather. Amongst those in the contrasting look was supermodel-in-the-making Kaia Gerber, who hit the runway in a black lace mini dress, pink leather gloves and mismatched earrings featuring the brand’s double C logo.
