After staging an impassioned feminist protest last season, Karl Lagerfeld was a bit more laid-back this time around. And what does that look like? Oh, you know, just a full-on French brasserie complete with a 360° wooden bar, mosaic tiled floors, red leather booths, handsome waiters (one of whom snuck a kiss from newly-brunette Cara Delevingne), piping-hot espresso, and freshly-baked croissant, of course.
As per usual, the runway roster was filled with a list of who's who, including BFFs Delevingne and Kendall Jenner, who led the cool café culture charge. The models sipped champagne, flipped through the morning papers, flirted with the help, and perched themselves elegantly at the bar to show off their sumptuous looks.
Lagerfeld hailed this season's offerings the "French Collection" and true to its moniker, it was filled with the fashion house's signature tweed jackets, frothy chiffon dresses, quilted puffer jackets, throw-on knits, and ladylike pencil skirts. The models also toted around more of the kitschy accessories we've come to know and love, like a purse made of plates.
