Karl Lagerfeld turned to a vaunted icon of life à la parisienne for his fall collection for Chanel—the brasserie. Transforming the Grand Palais into a bustling bistro astutely rechristened the Brasserie Gabrielle and complete with a glossy bar, deep red booths, and handsome waiters, Lagerfeld’s outing updated many of the brand’s bourgeois staples—demure tweed suiting, clingy knit dresses, and sheer, black evening frocks, paired with messy, teased updos, ribbon headbands, and sensible, mid-heeled cap-toed sling backs. Cheeky plate-shaped purses and layered napkin-like hems were a nod to the theme, but the real charm was how the modernization of the classics played out in the details, like the perforated leather on Lily Donaldson’s coat and matching pencil skirt or Kendall Jenner’s bow-bedecked puffer jacket.
