Paris may be abuzz with the aftermath of both Hedi Slimane’s and Raf Simons’ recent debuts, for Saint Laurent and Dior, respectively, but no one’s forgotten about the real Grande Dame of Paris Fashion Week: Chanel.
Between the signature over-the-top sets (this season there were wind turbines), Karl Lagerfeld’s whimsy and sense of humor (see his hilarious statement about ‘no smoking’), and, of course, the gorgeous clothes, the Chanel show is always equal parts entertaining and stylish. And we look forward to it season after season.
Of course Spring 2013 was no exception and luckily we were on hand to report on every minute of it! Click through to get the scoop on everything from the standout collection, to the star-studded front row.
