Models walked down a snow-covered catwalk at Chanel’s AW19 show, which saw the Grand Palais transformed into an alpine village.

Guests sat on benches in front of wooden chalets, which were surrounded by a backdrop of snowy trees and mountains. Smoked curled out of chimneys, and Chanel skis were propped up in drifts of snow.

It’s the latest in a string of elaborate catwalks from the fashion house, which has created tropical waterfalls, leafy forests, and even a supermarket as the backdrop for previous shows.

This season’s show included a one-minute silence for the late Karl Lagerfeld, who designed the AW19 collection together with his successor Virginie Viard. Catwalk looks included plenty of houndstooth and checkered prints, as well as boots, skirts and dresses with fur trim.
