Saint Laurent may have brought the waterworks and palm trees this Paris Fashion Week, but leave it to Chanel to bring the whole beach. Karl Lagerfeld presented the house's Spring 2019 collection sur la plage, with models walking barefoot through the sand and tide. Remarkably, the hyper realistic set (complete with boardwalk and lifeguard) was housed inside the famous Grand Palais; the juxtaposition of the tropical paradise and industrial glass ceiling made for some pretty epic Instagrams.

As for the collection? Iconic tweed and '80s inspired details galore - along with plenty of seasonally appropriate straw hats. Basically your dream wardrobe for a summer spent in the South of France.
