S/O TO KARL: CHANEL SET DESIGNS

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So in honour of fashion month ending just over two weeks ago, I thought this would be the perfect time for a shout out post to Karl Lagerfeld for his incredible set designs over the past years. I mean, the man had a freaking rocket launched during the Chanel AW17 show in Paris (not even up to a month ago) so it’s only well deserved.

To be honest, I’m always more psyched to see what outrageous and extravagant set designs Karl pulls off rather than the actual clothes. I love how he goes all out for every single show. Now that I think about it,  I’d love to sit through brainstorming sessions (if they have those, that is) and watch the process behind coming up with ideas for the themes and design, planning and executing them.

Like, how do people react to him demanding a rocket that takes off, for example or transforming the Grand Palais into an apocalyptic theatre or an airport terminal/ departure gate?

Can’t imagine how much the house spends per show.

“The house’s shows are also quite possibly the most intricate and elaborately thought out in the world.”

I didn’t want the post to be super long so I made a slide show of some of the other cool ass sets. Really though, is it a TIS post with a slideshow {or two?}
