One may ask, “Which show was beyond magnificent during Paris Fashion Week?” Why Chanel of course. Setting the scene for Chanel’s Fall/Winter 2014 show, the Grand Palais was turned into an enormous, lavishly stocked Chanel hypermarket. The aisles were backed with tins of Chanel-branded tea, coffee and ‘Coco’. Posters pitched a special on coconuts, and the enormous caisse complete with checkout desks was spread under a sign of Madame Chanel pushing a shopping trolley. Models walked down the runway pushing shopping carts adorned with Chanel branding, grabbing items off the shelves while sporting pink bouclé shades, tweed suits, bright leggings, metallic sneakers and padlocked necklaces.
Live. Laugh. Love
