Welcome to first class, where we would like to advice you to keep your eyes open and camera’s on at all times, because you might just miss the best fashion show of the season. Karl Lagerfeld’s designs for the spring 2016 RTW collection appeared to channel the glamorous Pan Am crew when its fashions landed onto the runway in pure elegance.
The unity of model passengers de-boarding the Chanel Air was brought through the use of the main French flag color palette of blue, white and red detailing. With 3D patterned separates and desirable thick tailored tweeds, the Avatar skin colored uni-eye-shadow and silver accessories drew upon all other aspects of the pale blues, whites, black and pink rose embroidered garments. The refined mid-calf hemline skirts, paired with transparent and white plastic wedge footwear made for an attractive yet comfy travel attire, especially for those fashionable running late for their flight.
If there’s one thing Chanel has always given us, it’s the impeccable taste of sophistication each season that continues to represent the independently chic women.
“It’s against sloppiness in travel, I do it like it should be, Chanel Airlines is private jet for everyone.” said Karl Lagerfeld when referring to his debut theme.
Whether you’re hopping on or just hopping off a flight, functionality executed with style is what Chanel has always specialized in representing. Why would you put business before pleasure, when you can have both at the same time!
The dashing flight attendants may as well have said, “Thank you for traveling with Chanel Air, we hope you enjoyed your evening with us. It seemed like the time just flew by!”
