There were so many moments and things that I like about Paris Fashion Week that it deserves a few posts on its own. This was my first time ever to attend Paris Fashion Week, so it was rather overwhelming. I have always loved Paris and French countryside, especially the Val-de-Loire region where I spent several summers learning french when I was a teenager. To experience Paris during Fashion Week though, was something entirely different.
The highlight of my visit was no doubt Aeroporte Chanel Cambon at Grand Palais, Karl Lagerfeld’s take on what air traveling and airport experience should be – stylish, airy brightly-lit space, friendly smiling staff at the check-in desks, handsome luggage handlers, air travel as a leisurely experience, all complete with Chanel luggages and very chic outfits to match… Last but not least, we all fly from Gate No. 5, of course!
I quite enjoy the layering of tweeds and bold coloured prints for this collection, and those comfy sandals and mid heel pumps! More of these are always welcomed because I prefer comfort and practicality over aesthetic alone. After all, I do have to walk quite a lot in every day life, and although I adore the look of skyscraper heels, they are not exactly for walking.
For this occasion, I could not resist a selfie, as I imagine boarding Gate No. 5 myself on Chanel Airline back to London. Karl Lagerfeld really should consider starting a real Chanel Airline. One has a good feeling that it will be a joy to fly!
