There were zero signs of turbulence as Chanel’s ready-to-wear spring collection took flight at Paris Fashion week.
True to form, Karl Lagerfeld once again outdid himself when he created a Chanel Airlines terminal themed runway under the roof of 19th century Grand Palais museum on the Champs Elysees.
As they arrived guests handed their retro boarding passes to security before entering a magnificent departure lounge brought to life by roaming pilots, Chanel themed trolleys, an electronic flight information board and check-in desks set against a cloud backdrop. Model passengers traipsed through the scene wearing Chanel’s latest collection and hauling luggage on wheels as they headed for departure gate No. 5.
For the finale, the man of the hour, Mr. Lagerfeld himself, appeared as the captain.
