Karl Lagerfeld Creates Air Chanel Plane for Stunning 2012 Chanel Haute Couture Fashion Show

Posted on January 29, 2012

Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel Haute Couture show for Spring 2012 took the audience to the air for a high flying show set in a jumbo jet run by Chanel Air. It took five days to recreate the cockpit and first class cabin of the airplane in the Grand Palais in Paris. The seats were comfortable and Captain Lagerfeld put on a very entertaining Chanel show.

The clothing was all blue -- and it was all beautiful. If you love navy blue -- and you know we do -- this collection is a dream. There were classic day suits, gorgeous evening suits, cocktail dresses and gorgeous evening gowns. The dresses featured drop waists and slouchy, low pockets -- no one carried a handbag. The camellia is back and some of the stockings had the most gorgeous jeweled embellishment. The models' hair was anything but classic: their hair was teased sky high for the most part, giving a nice contrast to the classically cut suits, trim dresses with rouleau necklines and 30s inspired skirts.

The blues ranged from an icy, pale blue used in the suits and dresses to simply stunning navy blue, jewel encrusted evening gowns. There are some interesting faces in the cabin: keep an eye out for a cleaned up Alice Dellal, the punk drummer, socialite and face of the Chanel Boy handbag. At the end of the show, Karl arrived out of the cockpit to take his celebratory walk -- no doubt secure that he just pulled off another triumph.

Here is video of the entire show:
