Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Karl Lagerfeld may have never stepped a couture covered foot inside a supermarket once before, but if it were a Chanel supermarket, well then, kindly hand him a basket. Transformed under the domes of the Grand Palais for the fall/winter 2014-15 presentations was a Pop Art-inspired marketplace where special invitees and models alike could snatch up Eau de Chanel mineral waters, the latest 2.55 bag, and carry them chicly to check-out in a supermarket basket fashioned from Chanel’s signature jacket weighting chain.
As for the actual collection presentation, models purused down aisle five wearing moth-ridden bubblegum pink sweats, paired with a matching cropped turtleneck, and finished with a floor sweeping tweed coat with billowy sleeves. Other chic little sweatsuits were solid and sparkly with metallic threads. Bell-shaped tweed skirts were paired with matching little capelets and front-zippered jackets with exaggerated bishop sleeves.
Black or silver leather leggings were worn under many skirt suits and we noticed plenty of knit separates donning a color palette inspired by the freshest array of produce. Leather played a supporting role to tweed and knits, with guest appearances by that famous quilted texture on coats and jackets. Each and every ensemble was paired with trainers from the sportif Chanel spring couture show. Because Karl has a sense of humor, and because let’s be honest, we need a bit of comfort in selecting the perfect rump roast, after all.
