Karl Lagerfeld staged the latest Chanel show in the luxurious New York Armoury on Park Lane a collection that was an exemplary exercise of refinement. The show was full of A-list of celebrity guests and Chanel aficionados that answer to the exclusive invitation of Karl Lagerfeld, who in an unexpectedly move re-presented the Chanel Métiers d’Art Paris-Salzburg collection.Even though the show was a sort of a repetition it was as well a wonderful opportunity for Karl to exhibit his legendary avant-garde approach to fashion. The surprising recreation of the historic Leopoldskron Castle, that was used as the lavish set for the first showing, last December, was recreated perfectly by the master of production for the New York show .
You have to do your shows with the big sets today,” said Lagerfeld. “You have to give something visual. Because girls coming out on a runway – there’s nothing wrong; it’s interesting for people in fashion. But for the rest of the world who buys the nail polish, the lipstick for a global label, it’s a problem to show something that looks [plain]. That’s our time…You have to adapt, we have to adapt. I am an opportunist so I adapt easy. A professional opportunist. One has to be.” Faces such as Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, and Bella and Gigi Hadid brought us this elaborate and luxurious collection of sumptuously worked creations .
