Wander through the Chanel Grand Gorge to discover a collection that is dripping with detail, picked perfectly from the picturesque place which inspired Karl Lagerfeld...

Karl Lagerfeld's Verdon Gorge vision, a grand canyon in the South-East of France, provided the perennial backdrop for the Chanel Spring/Summer '18 show at Paris Fashion Week. Channeling dew droplets, the French fashion designer set about stitching together a watercolour palette of aquatic tones — think ultramarine, turquoise blue, moss green, cloud white and rock black — which trickled through the collection. Fabrics were free flowing, much like a river, or glass-lake-like, with dynamic reflective qualities that danced in the daylight. Tweed was also transformed this season with a wooden-esque appeal. Then came the accessories, perfectly plastic and shaped into rain hats, gloves, boots, jackets and bags. It was a refreshing glass of Chanel, which the fashion pack were eager to drink up.
