Photos: Birdcages and pearls galore at Chanel’s craft-heavy fashion show in Paris

Chanel turned little gilded birdcages into handbags on the catwalk in Paris on Wednesday, at an annual “Metier D’Art” fashion showcase of its most intricate craftwork that also included lacy creations and shiny tweed suits. The French couture house recreated the Parisian apartment where founder Coco Chanel lived in the early 1900s and where collections were once presented, as models strutted down a reconstruction of its famed winding staircase. Kaia Gerber, the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, showed off a logo-strewn, black and white ensemble that included a whispy, short skirt, while other models also paraded down the runway in monochrome outfits.
