The Chanel couture show may have taken place amidst rainy weather, the front row attendees may have ruined their shoes in the mud, but the clothes were anything but downtrodden. In fact, the bad weather made the stunning designs stand out even more.

The show opened with variations on the classic Chanel suit, with detailing from sequins to leather to feathers, and closed with the bride covered head to toe in a fantastic feathered dress. Karl Lagerfeld seemed to take inspiration from medieval times - the head coverings remind me of the chain mail knights wore under their helmets, the feathers seem reminiscent of the Middle Age pastime of falconry, and a couple of the dresses seem very Maid Marian. All in all, another masterpiece from Karl!
