Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel to the moon and back this season. View the out of this world FW17 collection now...

Welcome to Centre de Lancement No5, the home of Chanel's Fall/Winter '17 show. This season Karl Lagerfeld has erected the AP-A/H-17/18 spaceship inside the Grand Palais, Paris, as his space cadets ready(-to-wear) for take off. The Chanel uniform comes complete with galactic gear, think astronaut-printed dresses, dazzling headscarfs, glitter moon boots, metallic suits and silver space-esque separates. 

In preparation for the mission, Lagerfeld looked to a white, grey and black colour palette, which was sourced for rich tweeds, knits, silks and wools. Silhouettes for women, men (and child) were structured and for the most part, treated with the appeal of a starry-night sky. Tuxedo jackets were shiny in satin, blazers were beaded and littered with pearls, trousers were twinkling with reflective rows of thread and pleated dresses danced with volumes of dimension.
