Karl Lagerfeld looks to the future. Obviously so, with Chanel’s recent rocket launch pad and its previous IT center which both had digitally savvy models marching at these venues. Which is why the Cruise 2018 show theme came as a surprise, as it reminiscences of an Elysian golden era.
Returning back to home turf Paris — instead of the expected exotic grounds, with previous escapades including Havana, Seoul to Dubai — the latest Chanel Cruise 2018 show welcomed guests into a Grecian ruin site where the ancient and the antiquated were put on a pedestal.
Models Binx Walton, Soo Joo, Lindsey Wixson, Anna Ewers were all present on the runway as Amazonians with a lavishly romantic sense of style. How do we sign up to join the immortal-looking, chic tribe? Well, here’s the Chanel guide on how to dress like a Greek goddess who doubles up as a 21st-century style luminary:
1. Slide on an arm cuff — no, not on your wrist, but right under your bicep.
2. Have yourself an Olympic laurel braided headband.
3. Brave head-to-toe gold.
4. One shoulders are back, peeps. Get in on it!
5. Don’t forget those to-the-knee lace-up gladiator sandals — column-heeled, of course.
