Today, at 2019 Paris Fashion Week, it was presented the Fall/Winter 2019/2020 for Chanel, the last show that had the design of the late Karl Lagerfeld. Paris Design Agenda walks you through Karl Lagerfeld’s last designed collection, on the famous french fashion house.
It was on this past Tuesday morning, that Chanel presented the Fall/Winter 2019/2020, on 2019 Paris Fashion Week. It was also the last show that was designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, that passed away last week.
This Chanel show was an emotional goodbye to Karl Lagerfeld, and it was attended by important public figures such as Anna Wintour, Kristen Stewart, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Monica Bellucci.
Presented in the iconic Grand Palais, in Paris, the show had the scenery of an idilic winter chalet in the mountains, and it was initiated by a minute of silence. Penélope Cruz, Cara Delevingne and Kaia Gerber were some of the many models that walked the runway.
The collection was a collaboration between Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel’s successor Virginie Viard. The purpose of this show was to place it on a peaceful village in the mountains, to evoke the season that was presented, even though there were Chanel’s iconic elements, such as the use of tweeds, prints in a variety of colors and pearl accessories.
The trends stipulated throughout the show insisted on the oversized silhouette – long coats and trousers – puffer jackets, always accessorized with furry boots. The show ended with an extraordinary standing ovation, as models walked down the runway to David Bowie’s “Heroes.”
