You don’t need to keep up with the seasons or understand the who’s who of the FROW to appreciate a Chanel runway, as Karl Lagerfeld is famous for putting on a show. For SS16, the French fashion house transformed the Grand Palais into the world’s chicest airport as models checked in clutching quilted suitcases and faux passports. Fast forward to AW18 and show attendees found themselves in the woods, as wrapped-up models looked autumn-ready, as they crunched through a leaf-laden runway. This season was of course no exception. For SS19 , the Paris landmark was unrecognisable as picture-perfect lifeguards took to their posts against the shore. Straw hat-clad models sauntered past – their bare feet treading through the sand.

Kristen Stewart is using her spread in the new issue of V Magazine to show a different side of herself: a vibrant, colorful side. The inside spread is blazer-heavy and full of praise for Chanel’s head designer, and Stewart’s good friend, Karl Lagerfeld.
“What can be called ‘new’ in clothing?” Yves Saint Laurent asked an Elle reporter in 1971, after the release of what critics deemed a tasteless retrospective. “From peplum to stockings, everything has been done and redone a hundred times.” Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce, the founders and creative heads of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, did more than pay tribute to their archives; they recycled parts of them in their most recent runway show.
