Chanel doesn't do simple or understated when it comes to runway shows—and this season was no exception.

For Spring 2019, Karl Lagerfeld transformed Paris's Grand Palais into Chanel By The Sea—a sandy and serene beach getaway complete with its own ocean and on-duty lifeguard.


Of course, if there's anywhere we'd like to escape to right now, it's Chanel Beach. Models walked barefoot, carrying their shoes in hand as they walked the sand-filled runway.

The scenic beachscape was even complete with its own tiki hut and mini boardwalk, which Karl later took his final bow on.

As for the collection, it was the kind of beachwear that would make you want to book a one-way ticket to Chanel Beach stat.

There were oversized straw hats, vacation-ready swimsuits, and Chanel logos in the form of belts, bathing suits, and cardigans.

Along with a lineup of colorful sundresses and swimwear looks, there were still bouts of classic Chanel signatures like tweed and suiting, which were reinvented for a more laid-back and summery setting—especially ideal if you have to take a meeting on the Mediterranean.


There were some surprises, namely those bike shorts and even leggings have officially landed the Chanel seal of approval. After taking over street style and appearing on countless runways this season, the throwback spandex look hit the runways at Chanel, too.

They were styled with oversized tweed blazers and matching print sweater sets that elevated the look.

Accessory-wise, there were bags and sandals that will have us all counting down the days until next spring/summer. 


An array of colorful logo sandals were carried down the runway in pinks, blues, and a classic black and white logo flat that's sure to take over amongst the fashion crowd next season.

Most interesting, however, was the fact that models carried not one, but two Chanel handbags at a time. After all, more is more in the land of Chanel.
