The Fall‑Winter 2018/19 Ready‑to‑Wear collection by Chanel has been presented at the Grand Palais in Paris.
Crystalline beaded earrings catch light, falling like water drops.
Protecting iridescent dresses from the rain, waterproof capes become a seasonal essential. Transparency, an underlying theme of the collection, comes to life in a range of translucent accessories bearing a crystalline aspect. The almost invisible PVC reflects light and shields from drops of water. Wide-brimmed hats from the Spring‑Summer 2018 collection are waterproof and reflect sunlight, shielding the silhouette from both rainy and sunny days ahead.
Bracelets and cuffs come together in transparent PVC mittens. Their elegantly decorated, diamond-shaped topstitches offer a nod to the House's signature padding.
