Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to make dressing for a torrential downpour something to look forward to. Today, at Chanel's Spring 2018 show in Paris, the designer unveiled a collection filled with clear PVC rainwear—from bags to hats to caped ponchos. But it was the clear boots topping off every single look that really stole the show.

Ranging in height from mid-calf to over-the-knee, the high fashion rain boots feature the brand's signature cap-toe in both white and black. Paired with everything from tweed mini skirts to culottes, suits, and ruffled gowns, the boots proved their versatility in a wide range of looks hitting the runway.

Of course, the rainwear came in handy for models at the show—who walked down a runway featuring cascading waterfalls. Embracing the calming backdrop of nature, this season's set included giant cliffs, mossy green trees, and serene waterfalls.

A paradise at #ChanelSpringSummer! Bravo again @karllagerfeld @chanelofficial ????
