CHANEL HEADS TO KOREA

Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel to Korea for the brand’s cruise 2016 show. There, he paid homage to his latest destination with Chanel-esque nods to Korean traditional dress, like the charmingly pretty take on a hanbok that closed the show, sported by closer Ji Hye Park, and the cloud-like appliqué that came on a white billowy ensemble worn by Grace Mahary. Embellishment, like the mother-of-pearl embroidery that traced a black wrap dress, was inspired by the decoration on Korean wedding chests.

While guests were seated on stools that looked like confectionary, the models walked down the runway that had been marked out with Twister-like spots in paintbox-bright hues.

There were A-listers a-plenty lining the front row, including Gisele Bündchen, Kristen Stewart and Tilda Swinton, but local celebrities, known as K-stars, like G-Dragon, CL, Park Shin Hye and Im Yoona were the ones who really stole the show.

As for the clothes, Lagerfeld was in full-on quirky mode. He teamed neat little Mary-Janes with socks, and had accessories piled maximalist-style up wrists and necks. The models had Princess Leia-like buns affixed to their heads in contrasting hair colours, giving a perky Disney effect. The major visual motif was a busy and brightly colored patchwork, a technique, which, Lagerfeld said, is only found in Korea. Dresses, tops, skirts and suits came printed with vibrant geometric prints, while among the highly covetable a accessories was a fluoro pink, box-shaped take on the house’s iconic 2.55 that’s sure to be a hit with girls the world over.

Here are our favourite looks from the show.
