Chanel Supermarket...? C'est super!!!


Okay...I know I'm late to post about this, but how amazing was the Chanel AW '14/15 Ready to Wear show at Paris Fashion Week last week? You didn't see it??!! Well you're in luck because I have the link for it right here!

Can you imagine a world where everything you buy is branded with the cool Chanel 'CC' logo? Well imagine no more, as Lagerfeld's vision was just that.  The show took place at the Grand Palais, and guests were allowed to browse the halls of the supermarket before the show began which Francoise-Claire Prodhon describing it as "evoking the consumerist culture imagery of Pop Art as well as the concept of easy everyday luxury" (for Chanel.com).  If only Chanel was an easy everyday luxury to us all!

The looks themselves were quirky and colourful.  Much like the "Fashion Machine" Spring-Summer show from earlier in the year, trainers were very much the favoured footwear selection, but whilst the Haute-Couture show was a pastel affair, pop art primary brights and bolder colours were very much the chosen theme here.  And it was definitely the finishing touches that really made the show, Chanel bags in the meat aisle and Chanel shopping trolleys? Yes please!

What I love most about Karl's vision season to season is that the looks are distinctively traditional Chanel, but with a very modern twist.  For all it is ready to wear, it is after all high-fashion and most of us would look ridiculous wearing a lot of it to walk down the street, but if you pick apart each look imagine how great some of the coats and bags would look paired with the cute dresses and jeans of everyday life? And bold brights for winter?..I certainly approve!

Here are my favourite looks from the show:



I love Cara's coat, the blouse in the second picture and the bright yellow coat in the third (plus check out the cool Chanel shopping basket!!!) You can check out all of the looks here.

What did you think of the Supermarket Show?
Me...I'm always dreaming of Coco...
