Do you already know the news? Yesterday’s set was “Boulevard Chanel”, a street scene re-created for the Karl Lagerfeld catwalk. The fashion models took the “street” in feminist protest with placards and chanting slogans.
Models came out chatting as though they were out for a casual Saturday stroll.
“It’s not a fashion show in the normal way, so you walk like you were in the street, doing shopping or something.”
“I like the fact that people think I’m insane,” he chuckled. “Next time, I make some minimalistic things, no?”
For his finale, Lagerfeld staged a mock demonstration complete with banners that read “Tweed is better than tweet”, “Be your own stylist”, “Make fashion not war”, “Free freedom”, and “Ladies first”, with Cara and Gisele on quilted Chanel megaphones screaming, “What do we want! When do we want it?”
Speaking of which, Lagerfeld showed not a single high heel. “It’s not the red carpet,” he said. “It’s the street.”
