Chanel Goes Under The Sea With Florence Welch In A Shell
It looks like Karl Lagerfeld may have been drinking from the same water as Donatella, first Versace’s show went under the sea and now Chanel dived even deeper. Remember when we tweeted a teaser shot of the spring 2012 collection’s invitation? Well, the whimsical watercolors came to life thanks to Lagerfeld and with a little help from singer Florence Welch. Known for his elaborate sets, the designer had the entire Grand Palais morphed into an all-white underwater fairytale complete with ginormous shells and a harp player to welcome guests.
Once the show commenced models Daphne Groeneveld, Kasia Struss, Freja Beha Erichsen, Aymeline Valade, Anja Rubik, and Stella Tennant all paraded down the white runway. Meanwhile Welch. who was stationed inside a clam shell, sang harmoniously for the crowd. Along with the intimate concert, guests were able to channel their inner mermaid with sea greens, tulle and chiffon dresses, and some fishy silhouettes.
Anyone else ready to go swimming in Chanel?
