    IN THE SHADOW OF THE EIFFEL TOWER

    Under the glass roof of the Grand Palais, an Eiffel Tower stretches skywards. The iron girders of the two nineteenth-century monuments almost touch.

    Guests stroll round the foot of the tower before sitting down on the green chairs typical of Paris gardens. The models parade along the pathways. The Haute Couture silhouettes are straight or cinched at the waist, flared or curved, and the tweeds, wools, and chiffons are autumnal in hue, in shades of bordeaux, green, and russet.

    The top of the tower seems to vanish in the mist before the guests' eyes. Among those watching the show were Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry, Pharrell Williams, Caroline de Maigret and Sofia Coppola.

    "LA TOUR EIFFEL" BY ROBERT DELAUNAY : <BR />SHOW INVITATION

    "LA TOUR EIFFEL" BY ROBERT DELAUNAY :
    SHOW INVITATION

    To illustrate the invitation to the Fall‑Winter 2017/18 Haute Couture show, Karl Lagerfeld chose a 1926 painting of "La Tour Eiffel" by Robert Delaunay. The Cubist work expressed the artist's resistance to mainstream artistic opinion of the day, which wanted to see the tower demolished.

    The Eiffel Tower has become a symbol of avant-garde modernity and a source of inspiration for countless artists who still use it as a model.
