The haute couture bride in the Chanel Spring 2018 show stepped out on the catwalk, wearing "a white Marlene Dietrich-esque tuxedo with feathered sleeves and a train." In the midst of vintage Chanel suits and beautifully tailored 20s-inspired dresses, the bridal tux seems to reinforce a reccurring theme for the luxurious fashion house, as well as the world at large.

This comes as no surprise, as Karl Lagerfeld has consistently questioned and rethought Chanel bridal wear — from mini dresses to same-sex bridal garments during gay marriage controversies in France. The Spring 2018 haute couture bride seem to reinforce this metaphorical notion of "women, putting on the pants" quite literary and challenging persisting outdated notions of patriarchy and male dominance.
