All Aboard Chanel Airlines: FIRST LOOK At Karl Lagerfeld's Couture Show!

24 January 2012 by

The intriguing invite for today's Chanel Couture show was a hint of the spectacle that was to come. A view from Chanel Air, we cried, how chic! And the show more than lived up to our expectations. As we reported yesterday, the Couture shows, taking place in Paris this week, are more extravagant than ever, with the fash pack in a flurry thanks to limited seating at Chanel. Why so limited? Due to the dramatic set, rumours reported, and this morning, we discovered just how dramatic it was...

Arriving at the location, we were ushered through a white tunnel into a space designed like the inside of an oh-so-chic jumbo jet — yes, really! — complete with a bar cart. It was in-flight service how you dreamed it always should be. The aisle was the catwalk, lined with grey aeroplane seats and peep-hole windows. There's no economy class for Chanel, darling.

As we prepared for takeoff, the air hostesses models emerged through the plane's emergency exit — genius! — to show that this season, it's all about the drop waist and pockets. The beautiful collection included pastel blue chiffon gowns covered in sparkling embellishments and denim woven tweed with peplum frills, worn with pointed black heels with ankle straps.

And check out those massive mohawks! We've never seen such glam trolley dollies. 'Joining the fashion mile high club with Chanel', Poppy Delevingne tweeted along with the above image of the show's finale. Oh, what a ride it was.

And here's a snap of Poppy's little sister, Cara Delevingne, who was working her magic on the catwalk in a floor-length gown. Doesn't she look magnificent? We say yes!
