If you were looking for more of Spring's riff on the tuxedo, you won't find it here. Where other collections have played with YSL's Le Smoking, Karl Lagerfeld assured us we wouldn't find it in his lineup with a tongue-in-cheek "no smoking" sign he distributed before today's show. Instead, he stuck to feminine shapes and whimsical iterations of Chanel's staples, most notably in blown-up, oversize handbags on hula-hoop-like straps, piles of oversize pearls, and wide sun hats with clear plastic brims. Beyond accessories, Lagerfeld played with Chanel's signature tweeds and a chic black-and-white palette, and he even offered up a new take on the denim dress.
