Karl Lagerfeld took Chanel’s Cruise 2017 collection where no other runway has gone before—Cuba.
Why not the Pope, Obama, House of Lies , Fast and Furious and now Lagerfeld with Chanel have just changed the game. It was fun, it was outdoors all those amazing vintage cars and colours and to boot you could smoke cigars. Now that is what I call a party.
My favorites from the collection of Chanel’s Métiers d’Art with the music of Toronto (represent) recording artist Megan Bonnell.
For some of my girlfriends over the years I have run up and down, Bond Street, Sloan Street, Rodeo Drive and Rue Saint-Honoré look for that “It Purse”. What was I thinking, when I could now just go to Chanel Supermarket. Karl Lagerfeld played to the industry’s consumerist heart by parading his autumn/winter collection down supermarket aisles, during Paris Fashion Week. Here are some of the wild cool Chanel Purses you will find at this supermarket.
For a girl who may not be a total bag lady, we thinks it’s pretty awesome that when she does pick one up, she goes for Chanel. Go big or go home, right? We can totally se why Lagerfeld chose the girl with the half-shaved head and ripped tights over a more predictable choice. While Alice climbs the modeling ranks as the face of the new Chanel Boy bag — which she loves for the stingray, leather, and chains (us too, Alice) — perhaps we won’t hold our breath that she’ll be spotted in pearls anytime soon. This badass beauty is much more the menswear fan: “I like to be comfortable and I think men dress more comfortably than ladies.” Peep the video below for even more Alice antidotes.
Held in a faux airplane complete with a carpeted aisle and window seats, the runway show featured plenty of short-sleeve, sky blue dresses that recalled vintage airplane uniforms, was this “Pan Am”, “B.O.A.C.” , and it certainly was not the Concorde as the aisles would have to be really narrow. Present where naturally the Karl fan club. Despite last week’s media frenzy over her supposed split from Johnny Depp, Vanessa Paradis braved the paparazzi cameras at today’s Chanel Couture show. Wearing a slinky silver satin dress under a black jacket, the actress, model and longtime Chanel muse joined Paris’ chicest women for Karl Lagerfeld’s couture presentation.
Despite Karl Lagerfeld’s public image as a peacock who takes himself rather too seriously, he never forgets that fashion should be fun. With a rudderless Dior currently sleepwalking through the seasons and most haute couture salons seemingly content to produce beautiful but rather po-faced homages to couture workmanship, Chanel is the unrivalled hot ticket of the schedule.
This show was first-class. The audience were welcomed aboard at the entrance of the Grand Palais and led through a fake airport terminal of articulated metal corridors into the interior of a jumbo jet, complete with airline seating, low-level lighting and blue skies visible through the small windows. Instead of gilt chairs with calligraphed labels, there were slender airline style seats with electronic numbering, either side of a wide aisle. Champagne was served from a trolley wheeled along a carpet dotted with a discreet double-C logo.
The extravagant attention to detail on the set is not just a gimmick, but serves a commercial purpose of sorts – reminding the audience that the core value of Chanel haute couture is the pursuit of perfection with no heed to the cost. Yes, in Paris the magic of Coco is still present in the land of fashion where magic is real and as Coco herself proved it dreams come true.
After receiving his chef training at Mumbai’s prestigious Oberoi Hotel, Vineet Bhatia immigrated to England. His work at Zaika then made him Europe’s first chef of Indian cuisine to be awarded a Michelin star.
How do you begin this exotic journey into the world of Chef Vaneet Bhatia and the King of fizz Dom Perignon? The women I know who are alluringly spellbinding and can enslave any man with their teasing sorcery with a wave of their hand as if it was a magic wand, start with a bottle of Dom Perignon and a luxury bath.
Karl Lagerfeld showcased his collection of Chanel Paris to Bombay in the splendor of a Indian Palace he also did a photo shoot for Dom Perignon. My dear friend from London Michelin awarded Chef Vaneet Bhatia was appointed to create a Indian dining experience for the King of fizz Dom Perignon. Fashion and Champagne go hand and hand, after all LVMH owns the champagne brand Dom Pérignon and beauty brands such as Louis Vuitton and Guerlain.
This has been the first time that Dom Perignon selected Indian food to feature for it’s Dom Perignon affair. Why not, if Karl Lagerfeld is doing it at Chanel and you have a Chef such as Vaneet Bhatia. To experience the food of Chef Bhatia is without question being on a magical train of old the Orient Express with provocatively clad women with a yen for food. It is an adventure. He is the King of Spice. He is constantly creating. Inventing. The food is a fantasy of taste. I have known the Chef for twenty years or so and all I can say, when it comes to Indian foods Chef Vaneet Bhatia rules. If you have not been to his restaurant in London Rasoi on Lincoln Street I urge you go, life is too short to pass this up. Bravo Chef. The adventure never stops for My Name is Khan.
