Grand Palais changed into Airport Paris Cambon for one day. A reference to Rue Cambon in Paris, where Chanel opened it’s first store. And while most of us might dress for comfort when boarding a plane. This morning the Chanel models looked as chic as can be while catching their flights. Airport life never looked this elegant, but Karl Lagerfeld gave us an idea of what it could look like.
Colorful (with lots of blues, reds and whites) and busy printed, so it turns out. With not just the typical tweed skirt suit in all it’s variations – a Chanel design classic that never goes old – but theme inspired departure board prints and plane patterns too. Long skirts were paired with pants as shorter co-ords seemed quite risqué for any regular flight personnel. But then again this is Chanel’s world and here everything is possible. Like the fantasy printed sweater and skirt worn by Imaan Hammam or a denim on denim flared skirt and jacket with puffy sleeves that popped up in a series of denim looks towards the end of the show.
Anything and everything was airport themed. From the Chanel hard-case wheelie carry-on bags to the sandals with implemented runway lights around the soles. As the models sported either shiny mirrored sunglasses or blue make-up where sunglasses (sleeping masks perhaps?) should be. Those chunky chains, pearl necklaces and statement cuffs might take a while a security, but who would mind spending some extra time at this luxurious Chanel Airport?
