Chanel A/W '18 An Autumnal Affair...

Last Tuesday, March 6th 2018, the stunning Grand Palais in Paris was once again transformed for the latest offering from Chanel.  This time it was an autumnal paradise, even though here in the UK we are patiently awaiting Spring, it wouldn't be fashion if it wasn't a season ahead.  Inspired by Lagerfeld's love of autumn colours and his love of the trees and nature evoked by memories of one of his childhood homes, this collection is simply breathtaking.  Although a lot of black is used, it is broken up with colourful accessories and many of the tweeds this time around reflected the colours of autumn.  Here are my favourite looks from the show:

This time around, I really loved the detailing and embellishments used to finish the coats.  Everything from this collection felt very French and very Chanel.  I'm also really in love with this beautiful cross body Camellia rose bag (below) which is absolutely exquisite!

The new bag of the collection, the '31' (above, featured in the show in various mediums) is based on a handbag that Chanel used to own, gifted by her to a lady named Claude Delay, who recently gifted it back to the house.  Lagerfeld used it as inspiration and named it 31 after a famous French expression meaning to get dressed elegantly (ironically it also ties in with 31 Rue Cambon, the address of the famous Chanel flagship in Paris).  I love it in this fuchsia pink colour.

A perfect end to fashion month, thanks again to Chanel!

Which were your favourite looks from the show?
