The Chanel couture spring 2018 show, the most spectacular and extravagant celebration of fashion, took place on Tuesday in Paris. As usual, Karl Lagerfeld had a lengthy vision for this season — 69-looks-long, to be exact — but it was by no means a meandering one. The runway saw twinsets in a multitude of vivid floral colors, double-breasted coats over structured frocks with an exaggerated skirt, and outfits toughened up with fingerless leather gloves and patent ankle boots — all of which, tweedier than the next, were built around four very specific details, making Lagerfeld's latest offering oddly...conceptual?
But allow us to break it down for you. According to Karl Lagerfeld, there are four important things your next fancy outfit needs to have. Because we may not be able to afford couture, but we never met a little bit of tulle we didn't like. And we'll never be ones to turn down glamour, darling!
