Gabrielle CHANEL was a precursor proposing the attributes of male clothing to women to free their movement and participate in their emancipation. Yes, fashion is always one step ahead in the setting of trends.
However, Karl Lagerfeld is taking everyone on this time. The current global warming is provoking the disappearance of the Gulf Stream which seems to be directly leading us in to a new ice age. CHANEL is preparing us to face up to this new reality for next season.
White bears and seals are back on the ice packs and will only have to fear the Orcinus orca, as fantasy fur is a must at CHANEL for next season.
Before the cold hits us all, we sheltered in a cozy ice cave with the musical instrument furniture-sculptures of Pierre Arman presented in the Arman Suite at the Hôtel Lutetia. Brazilian Model Luana Teifke is showcased as the sophisticated CHANEL Yeti-Woman playing a Symphony on Ice photographed by Benjamin Kanarek for VOGUE Brazil.
