Chanel, Paris.Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel supermarket was the fashion moment of the season. Primarily because, in what other situation would you see fashion editors shoplifting and fighting over a doormat? A work of performance art and no mistake. But also, the clothes were supercool and the effect of watching models doing something faux-mundane made you notice their tweed tracksuits and holographic trainers in the same way you eye up a stylish woman going about her business IRL.
JW Anderson, London
There’s no pomp at a JW show. He puts the clothes front and centre of his agenda, but that’s not to say he’s a pragmatist. Far from it: the clothes are experimental, but for the sake of beauty, not weirdness. Backstage he mentioned earthy tones and Barbara Hepworth but it was his twisty necklines, long skirts and the feat of making jumbo cord look elegant that will stay with us. Oh and Malaika Firth’s dress.
