Headed up by Karl Lagerfeld the brand brought the drama of the natural world indoors with a huge cliff complete with waterfall towering behind the runway.

The show was held in the opulent beaux-arts-style Grand Palais exhibition hall.

Chanel revealed its spring/summer 2018 ready-to-wear collection to a crowd including “Spectre” star Monica Bellucci and Chinese actress Baihe Bai.

The models were prepared for torrential rain as they came equipped with thigh-high, clear plastic rain boots as well as plastic hats, ponchos and gloves as they strode past the waterfall which flowed beside the catwalk.

The collection also featured examples of the label’s traditional tweed suits, as well as 1960s-inflected miniskirts, transparent skirts, oversize trousers and ruffled lace dresses.

Model-of-the-moment Kaia Gerber, the 16-year-old daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford opened the show, continuing her run of high-profile appearances, sporting a loose-fitting, tasselled jacket with a miniskirt and a tube top, accented with plastic boots.

Earlier in the week she appeared in both the Yves Saint Laurent and Valentino catwalk shows, with some asking if at 16 she is too young for the runway.

Meanwhile, with a slightly more affordable price tag, ASOS is selling this “super crop” jumper that doesn’t even cover your boobs… and shoppers are VERY confused.

And if you want some high end style with a high-street price tag check out this New Look suede biker jacket for just £39.99, very similar to the All Saints version costing £345.

What do you think about these cuffs available on Net-A-Porter that look like ANKLE TAGS for £165?
