For the occasion, Karl Lagerfeld turned the space into an indoor garden, complete with roses, sand and a fountain as its centrepiece. Both modern and retro, the collection featured lots of Chanel's signature tweed suits, matched with pointed boots, as well as dresses embroidered and embellished with diamanté, feathers and beads. Looks were accessorized with veils adorned with flowers, in keeping with the show's garden scenery.

There were revisited kimonos, obi belts and origami-inspired pieces.
