Karl Lagerfeld created the airport of our dreams this morning (Oct. 6), for Chanel’s Spring 2016 show in Paris, complete with generous carry-ons, smiling skycaps, and stylish fellow travelers. In an airy terminal—actually the soaring, sky-lit Grand Palais—a faux departures board displayed destinations such as Shanghai, Dubai, Salzburg, and New York—all cities where Chanel hosts events for jet-set customers.
Models wore baseball caps and boater hats, reflective shield-style sunglasses, and layers of knits, chiffon, and tweed we could actually picture ourselves putting on. Chunky, flat sandals with light-up soles looked easy to remove at security, while practical little white socks would protect clean feet from the floor. A fetching pattern of navy and red airplanes recalled the chic earlier days of Air France, before disgruntled employees were literally tearing the shirts off the airline’s executives.
