Oh, Karl! How you do what you do. The mastermind behind Chanel turned the Grand Palais into a beach, sending models down the runway in tweeds that somehow looked proper amongst the sand and lavish sundresses with a retro kick. It was the accessories that stole the show, though. Everyone will be talking about and posting about the Chanel beach ball purse for days, we’re calling it now.
But when we do finally arrive at Spring 2019, we bet you’ll find most ladies flaunting the PVC sandals with a lucite heel, which come in lovely shades of coral and sky blue. Instead of furry chain-strap bags, the new version comes in a fabric like your big, fluffy bathrobe, and there are quilted clutches that look puffed up like your average pool float.
There are plenty of straw hats and lunchboxes, too, so if you like to keep it classic with a Chanel picnic by the sea, you’ll be set. One thing’s for sure: next Spring, we are headed to the beach, and Karl has provided us with all the right outfit accoutrements.
