I find the whole scenario rather tacky. The mise en scene does indeed look like a manger or a mall Christmas display–Santa's Enchanted Village. The hayseed/BBC Thomas Hardy rolling around doesn't really work. The clothes are such a self-parody that who but the wives/girlfriends/hookers of Russian oligarchs wears this stuff? It is all Juicy Couture for the fatter wallet.
offensive and unncessary chanel show if meant to evoke/provoke christianity, and made even more crude by the cavorting bodies in the hay and the ever laughable lagerfeld who looks as if he cannot quite fit into his dior homme jackets recently
Gotta say that, in spite of the weight loss, Karl looks awful as usual these days. If you've seen him without those Terminator goggles (for instance in the film Lagerfeld Confidential) you know he is not only human but handsome as well, with very nice eyes. The gloves, oversize collars, and clunky boots just add to the robotic effect. It's a shame that he feels the need to be so encased. Lighten up!
KL has always been a very controversial character…One cannot just simple look at him and move on…he basically stirs up so many emotions and feelings(and maybe prejudices) that basically most people REACT. Yes, it is always "Hate him" or "Genious" or "His clothes this…or that…" One cannot just simply be indifferent!
I like new theme away from the usual strong and bold theme like the Carousel (I believe that was last year?), to a manger/new beginning theme. Its very nice indeed, the models can frolick and have fun :). Shows the durability of the collection pieces.
The stage set reminds me of the poor people in France back in the 18th century, when Marie Antoinette was rumored to say " Let them eat cake!". Although its totally not poverty, it's freakin' Coco Chanel!
unnecessary religious overtones, it seems. quickest way to lose an audience is to attach to a product a religious or political message. I would have traded a ticket to the show for a brioche. Honestly.
Oh my goodness, Lily Allen! That show looks incredible :) I loved Garance's post as well…and I love how you have started to link to her blog. I was reading both of you separately before you got together, I think it's so cute now that there's a connection! Oh, Chanel is the ultimate!
