Chanel Spring 2017 Was All About "Timeless Femininity"

At Chanel's Spring 2017 show, designer Karl Lagerfeld explains that his designs highlight the "timeless femininity" of lingerie — which he describes as "intimate technology." There was certainly a lot of technology at the massive show, which turned the Palais Royal in Paris into a server farm. Front-rowers like Usher, Caroline De Maigret, and Anna Mouglalis also reflect on the latest, tech-inflected collection from Chanel.
