    Chanel Cruise 2020: Virginie Viard unveils relaxed look after Lagerfeld

    It's the journey that matters most to the house of Chanel, which chose a rail station as inspiration for its latest cruise collection, staged in Paris today. A train platform, installed in the heart of the Grand Palais, was a fitting backdrop for a collection seeking to recreate the glamour and excitement of leaving the city. The collection was the first to be designed without input from Karl Lagerfeld, who died in February. Created by Virginie Viard, formerly Lagerfeld’s right-hand woman and now the designer charged with taking to Chanel into a new chapter, the collection offered a loose, more relaxed aesthetic loaded with options for a woman planning her own great escape.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians favourite shared a snap of herself to Instagram in October wearing a teeny tiny Chanel bikini that was so small she appeared to be at risk of sunburn in unmentionable places.

    Chanel names Virginie Viard as new creative director after Karl Lagerfeld's death

    Virginie Viard has been named as Karl Lagerfeld’s successor at Chanel following news of the former creative director’s death on Tuesday. Dubbed Lagerfeld’s “right hand woman”, Viard previously held the role of fashion creation studio director at the French fashion house. Viard has been by Lagerfeld’s side at Chanel for more than three decades, ensuring that the label runs smoothly.

    Karl Lagerfeld: Why the Chanel creative director was so outstanding

    “Genius” and “iconic” are my main bugbears – the former should be used sparingly, about folk such as Azzedine Alaïa (a genius craftsman) or maybe Tom Ford (a genius at marketing, let's not beat about the bush). The latter should only be used if you have, say, an unfolding triptych of a medieval saint pasted onto the front of a coat: Jean Paul Gaultier, incidentally, did that in 1997. The British Fashion Council awards a fashion individual each year for being outstanding: Anna Wintour, American Vogue's editor in chief, received it in 2014, and a year later it was announced that Karl Lagerfeld was next.

    PETA criticised for 'disrespectful' response to Karl Lagerfeld's death

    Less than an hour after news broke of the death of fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld on Tuesday, animal rights organisation People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) released a statement that left some people shocked and disgusted. Karl Lagerfeld defended his right to use furs and exotic animal skins in his designs despite PETA’s repeated protests. “Karl Lagerfeld has gone, and his passing marks the end of an era when fur and exotic skins were seen as covetable.

    From Céline Dion to Kristen Stewart, all the celebrity style at Haute Couture Fashion Week 

    From Naomi Campbell ‘s surprise runway return for Valentino to Viktor and Rolf’s meme-inspired dresses , Haute Couture Fashion Week has provided some serious desk-side chatter. Renowned for its dreamlike creations and purse-load of zeros price tags, the world of couture is seriously exclusive – giving the industry’s elite the perfect chance to demonstrate their sartorial prowess via the FROW. Thankfully, Céline Dion has continued to defend her position as reigning Queen of Couture this season in a series of gram-worthy outfit changes. First up, she watched the  Alexandre Vauthier SS19 show unfold in a thigh-high split dress by the designer. Just a mere few hours later, she switched up the drama in a bow-embellished shirt and co-ordinating trousers for the  Giorgio Armani Privé runway – where she gave the main man himself a quick post-show hug. Over at Chanel , brand ambassador Kristen Stewart stole the spotlight in a cropped jacket (in trademark  bouclé of course) with metallic low-slung trousers and millennial-style sunnies to finish. Meanwhile, fellow actress Marion Cotillard demonstrated how to work the cycling short trend in the winter months with a chic quilted bum bag to hand. From rising star Rami Malek at Dior to a Valentino-clad Kristin Scott Thomas (we need her coat), here’s who wore what at Haute Couture Fashion Week.

    Scarabs, hieroglyphs and lots of precious metal: what happened when Chanel brought ancient Egypt to New York

    Karl Lagerfeld graduated from king to pharaoh last week with a show staged among the ruins of the Temple of Dendur, an Egyptian shrine that was moved from the Nubian desert and now dominates a huge room at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art, with views of Central Park. The temple and its setting are a mix of antique and 1970s modernism, and this is plainly what inspired Chanel’s latest Métiers d’Art show. The invitation showed gold scarab beetles and ankhs on a background of retro graffiti, giving the audience a clue to what to expect.
