Day Three saw Chanel, Jarrar, Stéphane Rolland, Julien Fournié, Yiqing Yin, Giorgio Armani Privé and Alexandré Vauthier show their stunning designs to the waiting sartorial masses.
Chanel’s show was as extravagant as expected, set up as a casino where guests mingled around the betting tables as models stalked by. The show also saw a host of famous faces walk the runways in one-off designs, including Julianne Moore, Lily Collins and mother-daughter duo Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp. The show itself went back to its Coco roots with tweed skirt suits and a simple black and white palette. Traditionally couture shows end with a bridal look but Karl Lagerfeld opted for an ivory suit and veil instead, worn by model-of-the-moment Kendall Jenner.
Over that Armani Privé the eighties were definitely making a come back with jewel-toned lurex and high powered shoulders, while Fournié went dark romance with deep velvets and creeping patterns. Our favourite look though has to be the Vauthier gold mini that closed the show and stole out hearts.
