#WednesdayWishlist: Chanel's Martian-meets-60s-snowbunny look


Big '60s hair, bejewelled headbands, rimless ski goggles worn as sunglasses, black-tipped rhinestone boots and winter shorts stood out as some of the important new trends proposed by Chanel's epic space mission-inspired Fall/Winter 2017/2018 collection recently shown at Paris Fashion Week.

And if you, like me, are keen to give off the impression this winter that you are in fact a young '60s gal off to the Alps (or Mars?!) for some gluhwein and an escape from reality (or gravity!), then here are some key takeaways from Karl Lagerfeld's collection:

Metallic or sequinned boots

Disco-balled feet are the best kind of footplay.

We LOVE these silver and pink sequin boots by Zara.

#pink or #silver ? Which one do you prefer? #zaranewin ref 7120/101

Larger than life sunglasses

Great for checking your reflection on the slopes or for starting a fire in a post-apocalyptic world, bigger eyewear will be seen as better this winter.

We want these rimless Emporio Armani sunnies, R 2 090:

The beanie has been given a makeover as woolly bejewelled headbands being introduced as the new winter sweatband.


Space blankies/capes resembling lilos might not become a thing anytime soon. Yet, look out for shorts in winter - only to be worn with glittery stockings that is.

Space-y shirts

Wear the moon, the stars and the sun on your chest.


Always a classic, paired with metallic accessories and boots, this '60s staple will be reborn.

Wear this Spree.co.za number with metallic ankle boots and a light-weight bomber:

Handbag muffler

This might not be in stores soon, but one can dream of one day being able to give someone the finger without them knowing.


Nothing says snowbunny-off-to-space quite like exaggerated Edie Sedgwick-esque eyeliner, big lashes and slight rosy lips.

Try the Rimmel Special Eyes Eyeliner Pencil:

Next time, take us with you Chanel!
