A Chanel runway show is always a feast for the eyes, filled with impeccable detailing, charming accessories and beautiful outfits that your closet can only dream of. This year’s spring/summer 2019 show was no exception. Except this time, taking centre stage was not the clothes themselves, but rather, the backdrop. A totally man-made beach–complete with sand and gentle waves rolling into shore–wowed the audience at Paris Fashion Week.

Models strolled barefoot along the sand, before walking up boardwalk stairs and slipping into Chanel sandals. Some models held onto their shoes while on the beach, as one does on a leisurely jaunt to the sea. To complete the dreamy seascape? Perched on the side of the stage atop lifeguard towers were male models, of course.

The collection itself was also quite gorgeous. That classic Chanel tweed, as usual, made itself known in oversized pastel-coloured suits. Though some of the outfits (apart from the straw hats) would probably seem out of place at a family beach picnic, they no doubt exuded the Chanel glamour and elegance we’ve all come to expect from the label.

One familiar face on the catwalk was Cindy Crawford‘s daughter Kaia Gerber, who wore a boxy black and white shirt, complete with dangling earrings (one side said CHA, the other NEL). Just in case you forgot what brand she was modelling for, the Chanel logo could also be found emblazoned across her shirt, as well as on her belt.

Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld, was met with a standing ovation. The German designer has been at the helm of the French fashion house for 35 years.
