CHANEL 2017

This season, Karl Lagerfeld chose to celebrate the French spationaut Thomas Pesquet and invited his guests to take board on the International Space Station. “Fly me to the moon in other Chanel World”

Staged in Grand Palais, the Chanel version of Apollo even appeared to take off at the finale – as booster rockets lifted the 30-meter high structure off the ground, as the rocket retracted into itself.

Karl Lagerfeld stated that “It’s in the spirit of times. Chanel joining a Frenchman in outer space. Besides it’s bound to be better than what we are experiencing down here,”
