Leigh Lezark and Jessica Chastain watched Paris Fashion Week come to a close with a final flourish courtesy of Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel AW13 show yesterday. Held, as always, in the Grand Palais, against the backdrop of a giant revolving globe adorned with flags highlighting the locations of Chanel’s 300 stores, models showcased a collection of seriously wearable, but utterly Chanel, outfits.
Leigh Lezark brightened up the largely monochrome FROW with her all-pink Chanel outfit, including a candy coloured version of the label’s must-have ‘lego’ clutch. A mega pearl necklace made for a thoroughly modern twist on the design house’s signature style. Jessica meanwhile, worked the classic Chanel colour combo of black and white, playing it safe but oozing chic in a ruffled blouse, black pencil skirt and courts. Who needs accessories when you’ve got those amazing flame-red locks?
On the catwalk, black and navy reigned supreme, as did iconic tweed and Chanel’s trademark over the knee boots. Karl pepped up the winter colour palette with hits of red, blue and yellow, and we can see that metal adorned box bag acheiving cult status in no time. As always with Chanel, there wasn’t a single piece we didn’t want, and something tells us Leigh and Jessica’s shopping lists will be just as long! GG
