Paris Fashion Week is almost over and once again Chanel has sparked massive attention with Kaiser Karl’s brand new idea. After the supermarket, the casino or the airport, it is Chanel’s digital fashion show that is raging. In order to wow people for the spring-summer 2017 show, Chanel has chosen to turn the Grand Palais into a data storage center of sorts with giant computer processors forming aisles through the space.

A good way for Karl Lagerfeld and his team to express Chanel’s new vision of fashion: the future will be all about digital. Thus Chanel has succeeded to deal with one of the burning current issue: how are we going to adapt our tradition and heritage to the digital crucial omnipresence?

There are few houses more synonymous with haute couture than Chanel. The French luxury behemoth has its own subsidiary, Paraffection, dedicated to the purchase of various artisanal companies; it puts these acquisitions to good use each season with it spectacular couture shows which are usually made up of over sixty hand-crafted looks.

This season was no exception; guests flocked to the Champs-Elysées this morning to see a show which took place in a recreation of the Chanel ateliers. Petites mains were hard at work on the makeshift runway, adding finishing touches and staging live fittings as guests took their seats. The emphasis today was on technique, construction and the intimate nature of haute couture – as fashion becomes faster than ever, Lagerfeld stressed the ongoing need for couture and its unique labour of love.

KARL – AMAZING AS ALWAYS.
