Breakfast and kisses at Chanel

Published

A year ago Karl Lagerfeld stunned the fashion pack with his supermarket-themed show for Chanel at the Grand Palais - this morning the setting was a little more high-end, but just as theatrical.

Staged in 'Brasserie Gabrielle' with VIP front row guests seated at 'reserved' tables, a dark-haired Cara Delevingne opened the show - her first runway appearance in Paris this season - before sitting at a makeshift bar with fellow Super Kendall Jenner.

The pair sipped grapefruit juice and tackled the complimentary olives before larking around with a baby Coco Chanel doll handed to them by Lagerfeld's six-year-old godson Hudson Kroenig.

The models both leant over the counter to offer a kiss to male model Baptise Giabiconi, who was acting as bartender.

The 22-year-old British model also took twirling to the extreme to show off a floaty black chiffon dress from Chanel's autumn/winter 2015 collection:

Joan Smalls, Edie Campbell, Lily Donaldson and Lindsey Wixson were among the other big-name models walking - and sitting in dedicated booths - in the Chanel cafe.

It was a collection dominated by the fashion house's iconic quilting. It appeared in puffa jackets, skirts, macs and bags - a tough look punctuated with tiny bows, or combined with Chanel's signature tweed.

Dark-toned tartan broke up a grey, black and white-heavy palette in the form of drop-waist dresses with statement high collars, below-the-knee skirts and hip-skimming jackets.

Just as last year's Chanel shopping basket became the it-bag of professional street stylers, there is probably already a waiting list for this season's double-plate evening bag.
