As usual, Chanel’s cruise fashion show was as spectacular as the last one, the event took place in the sunny St. Tropez, where the models arrived by boat and worked the runway bare foot (with many ankle bracelets) and in flats, kitten heels and moccasins, as for the male models (there was two of them, Baptiste naturally being one of them), they worked the runway in flip-flops, Chanel flip-flops!
The clothes were made of pastel floral prints and nude and brown hues and hair and make-up was bohemian-ly tussled. Maxi-dresses and bikinis were very prominent, making up most of the collection. Bianca Jagger assisted a male model on a motorbike to end the show, however disaster struck and the bike broke down, making for an awkward scene, one of which was later forgotten by the sight of designer extraordinaire, Karl Largerfeld in a purple outfit.
Of course, a fashion show would not be a fashion show without a star-studded audience. American Vogue editor-at-large, Andre Leon Talley attracted a swarm of paparazzi when he turned up in a green cape, which horribly clashed with the red decor. Seriously Andre, it’s Chanel not Christmas.
