Chanel supermarket??

 It was Chanel show time at Paris Fashion Week this morning and Karl Lagerfeld exceeded everybody’s expectations. Again!

If you still remember Chanel couture show (and I’m sure you do) not that long time ago, fashion legend wowed everybody by art installations designed by the man himself and now, for autumn-winter ’14 collections, he transformed Grand Palais into a supermarket full of Chanel branded goods that involved everything from meat and eggs, to brooms and liqueur.

 Models were walking around and ‘shopping’ while showcasing the collection and after the show was over, guests were welcome to take anything they liked from the shelfs!

You can imagine was was happening after such an announcement. Everybody was literally looting the ‘supermarket’ and taking everything with double C sign. After they were done, the shelves were totally empty.

Karl said that Coco would have hated what he did but his goal was to update the image of the brand. This kind of spectacle was a right choice to emphasise our consumerism and prove that everything with Chanel sign can sell.

PUNK came alive at the Met Ball

I was pleasantly surprised when I found out that the theme for the Met Ball 2013 was Punk: Chaos to Couture. Well, it kind of makes sense as punk references were all over the catwalks this season and it feels only right to pay the tribute to such a significant force that influenced our culture and fashion.

Costume Institute Gala is one of the most important fashion events of the year and guests really dress to impress. However, looking through the pictures of this years event it is clear that not everybody made enough effort to read the invitation and dress accordingly, and instead chose to play it safe and just look pretty… Well that’s just plain boring…

Here are some outfits that, in my opinion, really rocked the red carpet.
