RUNWAY: Chanel Pre-Fall 2016

Another season means that Chanel and, by extension, Karl Lagerfeld whisked the couture label's best clients and the world's most important journalists to a new city, transforming it into something that Coco would've been proud of. For its latest Metiers d'Art show in Rome, Lagerfeld paid tribute to Italian cinema, resulting in kitschy details like bow-tie pasta accents to unisex boucle suits, complete with tweed hightops. Also seen were carol singers and an all-male finale including Brad Kroenig and his two sons, Sebastian Joundeau and Baptiste Giabiconi.
