and the global fashion crowd eagerly watched. we're talking karl lagerfeld's concoctions for chanel's s/s 2016 collection, but even more so the setting he created. following last year's brilliant supermarket mock-up and the recent catwalk protest march, the clever designer wowed the fashion elite to what arguably is paris fashion week's most spectacular show. once again held at grand palais, lagerfeld invented a sleek airport lounge – obviously situated at aéroport paris cambon – replete with a chanel airlines check-in desk staffed by personnel in specially designed attire, boarding passes for all attendees, and first class cabin seating for the most distinguished of invitees. and obviously there was a clearly marked gate no. 5 at the glamourous airport, referencing chanel's iconic fragrance. location: grand palais, 3 avenue du général eisenhower [champs-elysées].
