For its latest Metiers d'Art show, Chanel unveiled its Pre-Fall 2018 collection in Hamburg, Germany today. From the stunning venue to the top models and star studded front row, here's everything to know from the fashion house's latest show.
Taking place at Hamburg's newly-opened Elbphilharmonie concert hall, the Metiers d'Art show transformed a grand orchestra theater into its runway. The building, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, is one of the German city's largest structures. This also marks the first time Karl Lagerfeld has ever staged a fashion show in his hometown.

Blade Runner shades, ironic but nevertheless iconic prints, and proportions sulky and oversized: the future is the past in Tbilisi, where Iron Curtain-era trends remain more fashionable than ever. Julien Boudet aka Bleu Mode traveled to the Georgian capital to capture street style for CR, seen above.
Is there a more unlikely couple than fashion and fast food? The industry that essentially underwrote Kate Moss’ infamous line, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” might as well adopt the motto: “If you can’t eat it, wear it.”
There’s a certain aura of lowbrow cool associated with Bella Hadid snarfing down Big Macs at an Alexander Wang afterparty. (Supermodels, they’re just like us!) The downtown designer is a notorious junk food enthusiast, and has featured McDonald’s pop-ups, Hooters waitresses, 7-Eleven Slurpee machines, and more at his fashion week blowouts over the years.
Seoul might be known for being a leader in innovative beauty, but over the last few years designers from the city are carving out their place in the fashion world. CR had the opportunity to head oversees to view the collections and enjoy the culture, and left feeling beyond inspired—and, yes, obsessed with K-Pop. Keep scrolling for the standout moments of the week.
Between the chic suiting staples and the streetwear trends the city is known for, one of the biggest highlights of the week was getting to see the extremely well-dressed showgoers around the venue.
Make the season's standout looks your own.
All it takes is a glance at your social feed to see that street style is an influential part of the fashion landscape. And as tastemakers flock to the world’s style capitals for fashion week, the photographers who track them are capturing a full picture of what everyone will be wearing this fall. Here's how to incorporate three of the season's most important trends into your wardrobe.
If this past season is anything to go on, a black liner (or perhaps a wardrobe of them) promises seemingly infinite possibilities for transformation. Whether inky pens were used to paint a razor-sharp wing or smudged kohl simulated suggestively slept-in makeup, the runways demonstrated loads of ideas for wielding your favorite black eyeliner. Behold your new favorite ways to make your mark.
1. UNDER LINE
Not for the faint of heart or tired of eye, a crisp slick of black reserved for the lower lash lines provided an unexpected twist on typical top lined lids.
At Isa Arfen, makeup artist Andrew Gallimore traced lower lids with Nars Black Valley Eye Paintfor a modern take on traditional “Kabuki makeup.”
Anyone who has drunken the cross-body Kool-Aid can attest to the addictive nature of not having to hold a handbag. Allowing it to rest easily on your hip isn’t only a breeze, it also has that “devil-may-care spirit” to it, or—as they say here in Paris—a certain je ne sais quoi. Carine, known to forgo bags in lieu of pockets, perhaps exemplifies this better than any one else. Fortunately for us all, this freedom doesn’t simply stop there. This week’s Paris runwaysoffered plenty of riffs on the concept.
