Chanel: on a big jet plane

Chanel staged a unique Spring/Summer runway show yesterday in Paris. The elaborate setting for this season's couture show saw the Grand Palais transformed into a 'private jet' - complete with emergency exits, numbered seating, floor lighting and even a drinks trolley.
Creative director Karl Lagerfeld has built a reputation for hosting lavish shows, but this is being hailed as perhaps his most original production.

Isn't this the part where you put on your eyemask and try and get some shut eye?

However in terms of my all-time favourite runway concepts, I can’t go past Louis Vitton’s Spring 2012 show in Paris. As the show commenced, the curtain went down to unveil a giant white carousel with models delicately perched on white horses.
Too stunning for words… so here are the pictures.

  1. I'm with you Michelle! That carousel and the LV outfits are gorgeous!

  2. Hi Cass. I particularly love Kate Moss' dress. All those pastel dresses against the white backdrop look so dreamy.
