The theme at the Chanel SS 2016 show was ‘The Perfect Airport’. Karl Lagerfeld welcomed his guests at the Grand Palais in Paris in a replica airport with check-in counters, (handsome) pilots and ground staff. In the airport’s corridors the mannequins – pardon: classy world travelers and stylish globetrotters – showcased the newest collection, suitable for premium lounges and first class lounges.

There were wheelie carry-on bags, of course, and tailored suits with the usual double C feeling, maxi pants to wear under wide skirts, denim jackets and many many classy and sometimes even witty accessories like colored shade sunglasses, baseball caps and sandals with flashing lights which resembled very much the lights of an airport runway.
