For Spring 1999, Lagerfeld used a palette of pale greys, pinks and egg-shell tones, which he admitted were 'new for Chanel. Although at first glance the collection appeared quite understated and largely unadorned - it was super luxurious. The cardigan style jackets were made from the softest, lightest cashmere/silk weaves and the plain metal buttons, chains and chain loop fastenings were made of real gold.
