On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, editors found themselves on the rooftops of Paris, thanks to Chanel. For the spring 2020 show, the French fashion house built a cityscape set in the Grand Palais, and models walked between drain pipes and exposed air vents. The collection, which was the first ready-to-wear offering from Creative Director Virginie Viard, was full of Chanel’s signature tweeds, cap-toe flats, and enviable handbags. Gigi Hadid walked the runway in hot pants finished at the waist with a chain belt; Kaia Gerber flounced past the Parisian skylights in a white taffeta skirt and off-the shoulder top with layers of little black bows at bodice; a host of models sported tweed onesies and jackets; and the final look—a sparkly floor-length skirt and top—appeared on the runway like twinkle of stars in a night sky. A city girl’s dream.
