ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Karl Lagerfeld presented a very Parisian haute couture collection for Chanel on Tuesday (July 4) in that most Parisian of settings - the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Lagerfeld has a history of eye-catching set designs for his runway shows and models have previously weaved through an airport departure lounge, a supermarket and a busy brasserie. This season it was back to basics with a scaled-down reconstruction of the 324-metre high tower as backdrop for unveiling a collection including demure A-line skirts and wide-legged jumpsuits in classic Chanel tweed. Models were crowned with matching bowler-style hats in keeping with the collection's vintage feel, but their low block heels were transparent in a modern twist. Haute couture fashion week is open to an exclusive club of designers who make bespoke collections by hand with Chanel, Dior and Jean-Paul Gaultier among the current members. Another of Lagerfeld's labels, Fendi, is set to close couture fashion week on Wednesday.
