PARIS-BYZANCE

So well, prefall season started a while back and one of the first to show their new collection was Chanel (on december 7th... I only got around to posting it now!).

After last year's enormous Shanghai show, Karl probably felt like doing something more intimate. Rather than taking it all to Istanbul, he redecorated the couture salon at the shop in Paris to look like some sort of Byzantian lounge room (scroll down for a pic).

Even though Chanel isn't the most wearable out of these prefall collections, I thought I'd start with them because there's always so much effort put in the spectacle, it's more than just 'the clothes'. I collected some pictures - runway, backstage, fittings, etc, so we could all have a little glimpse of what's really going on behind closed Chanel doors.


The invitation to the show.
