The best way to embrace our society’s advances is to incorporate them with lightheartedness and a touch of sarcasm. Chanel did just that at Paris Fashion Week.
The show began with their signature classic tweed suits, worn with plastic helmets that made Star Trek fans feel right at home. But it was the stage design that set the standard for this futuristic fashion celebration! Models walked on a stage surrounded by servers, cords, and cables.
The whole show beautifully represented “timeless femininity” with a twist: a technological twist! There was a black handbag, which was essentially a plastic robot with blinking square eyes. There was a sporty twist with plastic shin guards and baseball caps! You know you’ve designed something special when you’ve captured all the best parts of our favorite trends from 90’s throwbacks to classic femininity, sporty nostalgia, and futuristic digital genius!
Chanel, being one of the most anticipated runway shows every year, definitely lived up to their hype! The coupling of fashion + tech is alive and thriving in high end fashion, and something tells me, it’s only going to get better!
