Street Style, Paris: Chanel, Chanel and more Chanel outside Couture Fashion Week
Yesterday’s Chanel show went from the runway and beyond on the streets outside Spring 2014 Couture Fashion Week. Outside the Grand Palais, Karl Lagerfeld’s preferred Paris venue, Chanel was the label of choice for models, editors and just all around It girls striving for new and improved takes on those famed double Cs.
Model of the moment Soo Joo, fresh of the Chanel runway, bravely showed some leg in knee high socks, a black fur shearling coat, and sculpted Chelsea boots. Joan Smalls, happily fresh faced, looked the part of a stylish ‘80s rocker in a chic denim, leather and fur combo.
Models from the Ulyana Sergeenko show dressed down their retro finger waves in chunky sweaters and shearling jackets, while Carine Roitfeld proved once again that Parisian women can pretty much pull off anything. No one else could make a sliver of shin look so good. Standout outerwear continued from earlier in the week, with an absolutely stunning poppy print swing coat and fur-trimmed jacket in glen plaid and leopard. Jackets that are stylish yet still practical in the cold air? To that we say, “Please sir, can we have some more?”
