Let us introduce you to this season’s fruitiest head-warmer, courtesy of yesterday's Chanel Metiers d'Art 2015 show in Salzburg: the braided ear muff. The whole show was ace – Cara and Kendall walked down the catwalk *salon* arm in arm and we hearted the witty take on lederhosen, Viennese capes and starched denim flares – but what we're planning on replicating immediately is Karl Lagerfeld's genius Princess Leia-esque 'braidphones'. Thanks to Chanel hairstylist Sam McKnight’s Instagram, we think they're headphones too (well Karl does love wearable tech). They came in black, blonde and candy pink (yes, please) and tap into our general excitement about the new Star Wars movie dropping next December starring the original Princess Leia, Carrie Fisher. The force, indeed, is strong. 

Here's the lowdown on the #ChanelSalzburg shenanigans...
