Chanel Couture Spring/Summer 2012
I just got off a flight from Hong Kong and it was a super funny feeling seeing Karl’s setting for Chanel Couture Spring/Summer 2012 – on a faux air plane. Can you imagine being one of the audiences (or passenger) in the show? The coolest part is the setting came complete with a drinks cart, fake clouds that floated past the windows, blue carpeting patterned with Chanel’s iconic double-C logo and a cockpit door from which Karl Lagerfeld emerged at the end of the 61-look show for his bow. (Watch the full show here). The clothes are far from the typical air stewardess uniform, Karl apparently used a hundred and fifty shades of blue in this collection and that must be yet another highlight in this show.
