Chanel AW 2016-17
The lace; the boots and the sequins…oh, and the hats(!) My first Chanel show was nothing short of utilitarian princess magic, and by magic I mean multitasking between shooting on film, boomerang-ing on my iPhone, and snapchatting Gigi to my sister. This juggling activity is warranted (and attempted by most) when the Grand Palais show’s theme this year is Front Row Only; meaning that you can see everything in all its pearly, tweedy puffy-jacketed glory, up close and salon-style personal. I have to explain myself as I originally intended on making this a gif-heavy post with bits I took on my phone, but an incident involving water and my phone (I have lost all faith in the rice method) has made that impossible. Meaning I only have the photos below (and two lonely gifs I did post on Instagram) to share, but you won’t have much difficulty in finding photos online of the lace numbers I loved and drowned. Thank you Olga and the rest of the Chanel team for having me in Paris, and I can’t wait to show you the photos Ran and I took whilst we were there.
