Chanel at the Grand Palais in Paris
Karl Lagerfeld built a supercomputer in the glass environs of the Grand Palais, complete with snaking multicolored cables and blinking little green lights,
Incredibly cool environment with more bright color on his runway.
Still lots of tweeds combined with sheers . Long sheer dresses in Marble coloring.
Beautiful show for Spring!
The full runway show video is below
Have a wonderful week!

Leave it to Mark Jacobs to create a wild and creative fashion show.
The models wore crayon colored dread lock wigs. Textures of Brocades, silks, furs,satins, denims metallics and knits were pieced together, somewhere between Madonna's "Desperately Seeking Susan" and "Zoolander"
I wonder what pieces will make it into the boutiques.
Gotta give him credit, Mark's show was far from boring.
The garments were made with attention to every detail and
the beautiful workmanship.
See you on Ralph Lauren,s post later today!

Hello, It's been awhile and I couldn't let NYC Fashion week go
without a post or two. Today Alexander Wang showed his
collection with a strong California vibe.
I like simplicity and this collection reflects basics
with a twist and turn of fabric ties.
Soft fabric and colors still prevail. The sandals are
rich leather that are buckled at the ankle. The small handbags
are very cool accents and a reminder that small is better.
I wish you a wonderful fall and will stay in touch!
Wang was after a similar effect last season, but the way he went about it then was less subtle. It doesn’t get much more clichéd than pole dancer prints. Backstage he called this show, “50 Shades of Grey meets Lords of Dogtown.” Sex is still essential to the message, but he went about delivering it in a way that felt truer to brand Wang, tapping into his California roots. It didn’t all boil down to a bathing suit, but it came close. There were bikini tops made from button-down fabric and silk evening numbers modeled after bikinis. Rash guards morphed into clingy knit dresses and boudoir-ish slips were cut in neon tracksuit material. This wasn’t radical stuff, but it was cool. And it gibes with what a seatmate described as social media’s tendency to turn all of us, but maybe young women most of all, into exhibitionists. Wang has always been in step with the zeitgeist. In fact, it was so cool that anybody over, oh, say, 35 (with the exception, of course, of dear old Madge), might’ve left feeling alienated. For people like us? There’s the Adidas collab.
