Chanel Launched A Runway Rocket (No, We’re Not Kidding)
Grandeur on a Chanel runway is a given, yet the French house managed to wow us beyond our wildest expectations with its Fall 2017 show—by launching an actual rocket inside Paris’ Grand Palais. Sure, we’re accustomed to Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld going to the proverbial moon to close out Paris Fashion Week, but this interstellar showcase took things to entirely new heights. The collection features muff-style bags hanging from models’ necks, knee-high glitter boots, bejeweled headbands, astronaut prints, metallic quilted shawls and a rocket-shaped minaudière—you know, modern space-age essentials. Here, our favorite looks from the launch—see what we did there?
