Karl Lagerfeld conceived of a spoon-shaped silhouette for Chanel’s spring 2017 couture collection, which is to be paraded in Paris today.

The designer sketched the shape for WWD, saying he was inspired by a sculpture from the Twenties by Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti titled “Spoon Woman.”

Karl Lagerfeld conceived of a spoon-shaped silhouette for Chanel’s spring 2017 couture collection, which is to be paraded in Paris today. The designer sketched the shape for WWD, saying he was inspired by a sculpture from the Twenties by Swiss artist Alberto Giacometti titled “Spoon Woman.”
