Last week CHANEL showed their Fall 2017 Haute Couture collection, complete with a giant replica of the Eiffel Tower constructed at the Grand Palais and an abundance of celebs like Kristen Stewart, Tilda Swinton, and (my fave) Aziz Ansari in front row. The collection was inspired by Paris and Parisian women, and featured tweed suits in various shades of autumn, evening gowns shaped like the Eiffel Tower, flared and curved silhouettes, feathers, oversized clip-on earrings, and boater hats in a variety of textures.
I kept looking for an Eiffel Tower minaudiere, but it doesn’t appear to exist, instead most bags featured on the runway were quite minimalistic – tweed clutches worn to match the tweed coats. Feathers were treated as fur, trimming the hems of gowns, draping the shoulders, and wrapped around necks as chic stole-like chokers. And while I’m not holding out hope of owning any of the pieces from the runway, I do hope the boots make it into stores, because I NEED THEM IN MY LIFE. With laces and a modest height lucite block heels, these boots seem like they would go with everything, while actually being comfy. Here’s hoping.
