Chanel 2016 Couture Collection Honors Its Atelier

Chanel‘s 2016 couture show was a touching behind-the-scenes glance into the production process and people who make the clothes. “Behind the girls in the show, there are 200 more who make what they wear—that’s quite a lot, no?—and I thought we should show them to the public too,” said Karl Lagerfeld. In short, the entire atelier was transplanted onto the show stage.

Models, with their piled-up curls, came down with wide-leg pantsuits, low-swooping belled skirt shapes and cocktail frocks.
