Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel is a brand that creates spectacle like no other. Not lots of designers’ clothing could stand up to a space shuttle launch inside Paris’s Grand Palais, which is what the brand did at the finish of its Tuesday show (scored to Elton John’s “Rocket Man,” of course). In the previous, even though, Chanel has gone as far as to chip off and ship in a giant chunk of actual glacier, even though, so the brand’s design and style division was additional than in a position to rise to the occasion.
As the rocket suggests, Chanel’s Fall 2017 collection was themed about outer space, though the celestial references had been far much less literal in the clothing and bags than they have been in Chanel’s current perform. There was a clutch shaped like a rocket, of course, but that is a longstanding brand tradition. The most uncommon runway bags had been a series of backpacks in tweed and metallic nylon other than them, the collection did not stray beyond the brand’s usual bounds, which will probably be a welcome improvement for Chanel’s lots of fans.
