Sputnik Sweethearts at Chanel FW17

Sputnik Sweethearts at Chanel FW17

Karl Lagerfeld took his vision for Chanel to intergalactic heights this past week, opening Paris Fashion Week with a mod, 60s-chic inspired collection at the Grand Palais. If you thought Chanel's larger-than-life runway recreations of supermarkets, airports, political demonstrations or art galleries were worth marveling over, they're going to look like child's play compared to this Chanel-themed space station, complete with a staged rocket lift-off at the close of the show.

The Collection

The collection was mostly a study in subdued hues of black, grey and white, with many looks following a strictly monochromatic color scheme. Other ensembles experimented in overlaying the classic tweed Chanel two-piece suit with bulky accessories and a series of sleek pouches and handbags. Wispy bouffants, knit headbands that doubled as ear warmers and glittery knee-high, cap-toe boots completed many of the looks and cemented the 1960s-sourced inspiration for the collection. For the mens component of the show, Lagerfeld explored a decidedly sleeker and more contemporary aesthetic, sending soft knits, beanies and tailored jackets down the runway.
