CHANEL ready-to-wear collection is time is all about "not depressing" darkness, as Karl explained. In the middle of Grand Palais he built a rotating globe, dotted with small lamps and Chanel flags, each indicating the location of a Chanel store. As an orbit circling the models the globe - held their fashion colors in the same night as the enormous globe.

The silhouette was determined by A-linear mini-skirts, over-knee boots and hip-length tops. Coats surprised with rectangular cutouts around the knee, jackets with clever fold-over top hem. Infinitely tweed dominated the collection and appeared not only in classic gray and black and white, but also in mulitcolor, raspberry and in glitter look.

Particularly striking were the accessories: Karl combined helmet caps of pink, blue or red fur (They were, said Lagerfeld, actually facsimiles, in fur, of Anna Wintour's iconic bob). Boots adorned themselves with necklaces, high heels and skin-tight shaft overknee stockings leather. For a conformist attitude also robust bracelets made ​​with tank treads, gloves with pointed studs and leather accessories. In addition to the significant Brick bags last season also appeared  a mini-globes as bags - true to the motto "A minute away."
