Chanel unveils its official Fall/Winter 2018 pre-collection brochure images, modelled by Adut Akech who closed the brand’s Fall 2018 Couture presentation. Photographed by Karl Lagerfeld, the shots take on a theme of timeless elegance. Akech also opened the Parisian fashion house’s Cruise 2019 show.
In the imagery, the brand’s iconic tweed gets transformed into an ecru jacket topped off with a red and blue braid. This piece is styled with a knitted skirt which features a wide rib trim. We also see a tweed, wide collared jacket worn with a pair of Bermuda shorts and a bustier over a jersey dress. Leather garments also make an appearance in the form of a coat and a skirt accentuated by chevron motifs. Akech later dons a long tube skirt made of calfskin leather paired with a tweed jacket trimmed with leather. Another chic look is compiled of trousers and a broadcloth belted jacket. In the realm of accessories, she wears quilted leather boots with patent toe caps. Lastly, a lengthy black coat appears with Bermuda shorts underneath.
The FW18 pre-collection will be available for purchase in Chanel boutiques later this month.
