A MOMENT OF SILENCE, A STANDING OVATION AND PLENTY OF TEARS FOR KARL LAGERFELD’S FINAL CHANEL COLLECTION
Chanel paid homage to the late Karl Lagerfeld on Tuesday morning by beginning its highly-anticipated Paris Fashion Week Fal’19 show with a minute of silence.
Lagerfeld, who died on 19 February 2019 aged 85, had been the creative director at the luxury French fashion house for more than 30 years. Under his reign, the brand became synonymous with unbridled grandeur, complete with opulent accessories, A-list muses, and spectacular catwalk settings.
The show, which debuted Chanel’s autumn/winter 2019 collection, is the last to be overseen by Lagerfeld, with the help of his successor, Virginie Viard.
From the winter wonderland-inspired set and the emotional finale to the starry front row and unexpected runway stars, the runway was filled with models in tweed, plaids, leather and all things trendy. The iconic show was not void of celebrity like Penelope Cruz, and top models like Kaia Gerber and Adut Akech. Here are every looks from Karl Lagerfeld’s final Chanel collections:
