The buzz leading up to Chanel’s Resort collection show in Seoul is palpable. Models have already begun to flood feeds with their Instagram snaps from the city, and editors and buyers are starting to make their way east, documenting every step along the way.

In the images, Seoulites show off the ways they’ve translated Lagerfeld’s runway hits into real life, from socks with pumps à la Spring 2014 to the pearl sunglasses of Spring 2012. Find all 10 ways these fashion fans are interpreting Chanel in the slideshow, and stay tuned for more coverage from the South Korean capital.
