“Waterfalls are the healthiest thing in the world,” explained Karl Lagerfeld after his Spring/Summer 2018 Chanel show, for which he transformed the Grand Palais into Gorges du Verdon — the river canyon in the Southeast of France — featuring an impressive waterfall. These clip earrings, as seen on the runway, are reminiscent of the cascading water that shimmers and glints beautifully in the sunshine.
