Karl Lagerfeld, forever the showman is never someone to do things faintly, and so his Chanel Pre-Fall, Métiers d’Arts Show in Dallas was no exception. The festivities played on the style and history of Texas, or Lagerfeld’s perception of them. And he managed to sneak in two adorable outfits for boys (maybe because the cute kid is his godson, Hudson Kroenig). Really loving that patterned shirt below.
This over-the-top, three-part extravaganza was staged for an audience of 900 that featured celebrities such as Kristen Stewart, the face for this Chanel collection, Zoë Kravitz, Dakota Fanning, Lily Collins and Alexa Chung. Everywhere there was fringing, feathers, beadwork and remarkable fabric treatments, all with the look of the Southwest and the craft of Chanel’s specialty ateliers. Definitely the most unusual and stylish western style garments I’ve ever seen!
