The Classics: Chanel Ebony & Ivory

Chanel A/W 2015 accessories report

65a copysroller

This season Karl Lagerfeld turned the Grand Palais into a Parisian brasserie, affectionately named ‘Brasserie Gabrielle’, with his catwalk dedicated to a ‘French Collection’ that ticked off French classics and the now iconic, monochromatic pairings of Coco Chanel. Each model sported her signature two-tone, beige sling-back pumps with a black toe and remastered squared heel: ‘It’s become the most modern of shoes and makes the legs look beautiful,’ Lagerfeld said. The Boy bag was back in the same hues, while the 11.12 bag had been revamped in mosaic mingled with wool pockets, in knitted backpacks or as a down-filled shopping bag. Then given that the creative director was dressing the ‘new bourgeoisie’, his elegant coif’s were sealed with a chic Chanel clasp that made for a quick, modern updo.
