Unseen birds sang welcome in the dense forest enclosed within the glass and steel majesty of the Grand Palais. The Bard de la Mode enthralled his audience with a masterful Chanel collection, one that hit that high mark of haute, the glorious fusion of lavishness and chic.

The models wore piles of falling chiffon leaves in their hair, their eyes encircled with dramatic feathered lashes. Lagerfeld presented a clear fashion message: framed shoulders. He opened with tailored looks including an exquisite group of pale ribbon tweeds and a black dress with an embroidered sequined yoke and collar, for a mock-layered effect. 

For the evening, Lagerfeld worked the shoulder shtick variously as floral fluffs on sleeves, a scalloped horizontal line in navy lace against a white underpinning: a flurry of white feathers atop a black sheath. Structured looks in remarkable floral embroideries intended to look like prints, such was the density and precision of the work.
