IRIDESCENT FRINGES

Reminiscent of the Charleston frocks of the 1920s, the fringed tunic shimmers with iridescent reflections and a kaleidoscope of colours. The silk threads matching the mother-of-pearl beads of the long necklaces and the opalescent tweed of the suits move. The overlayered, stepped fringes reveal a broad palette of pastels from coral pink to aqua and lagoon blue. The shimmering ivory casts a reflection on the brim of the transparent boaters.

THE SUIT OF THE SPRING-SUMMER 2018

Broad shoulders, a nipped-in waist, and sharp lines: the suit of the Spring-Summer 2018 collection reveals a new silhouette. The iridescent ivory tweed jacket and skirt are trimmed with twisted braid. The structured jacket with a mandarin collar offers a clean, pared-down look. The fastenings are invisible, the pockets discreet, and the play of seams subtle: Karl Lagerfeld has stripped back the ornamentation to foreground the lines of the garment. The slightly flared three-quarter-length sleeves show off the stacked bracelets. The hem of the skirt falls halfway down the thigh, skimming the top of the transparent thigh boots.

SCENOGRAPHY

In a landscape of rocks and water imagined by Karl Lagerfeld, the sound of a waterfall resonates under the glass roof of the Grand Palais for the Spring-Summer 2018 Ready-to-Wear collection.
