From the supermarket to the street, Karl Lagerfeld takes up with every aspect of daily lives. For Spring/Summer 2015, he recreated a Parisian boulevard inside of the Grand Palais, pockmarked with potholes and puddles of rainwater, over which a parade of models swished in boucle tweeds and watercolor prints. In this video review of Chanel’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection, Lagerfeld shares his ideas about melding pragmatic designs with high-fashion style, a theme that is reinforced by putting Chanel finery in action on the street. Indeed, utility was built into the presentation, borne forth on the type of clothes that real women wear in their everyday lives. However, Chanel’s versions are crisper, more colorful, and devastatingly hip.
Watch the video below to hear Lagerfeld’s personal thoughts regarding one of Chanel’s most accessible collections to date.
