Paris Fashion Week: Chanel launched a rocket ship to space

Written by FDM

Karl Lagerfeld quite literally took things out of this world at Paris Fashion Week.

Despite the numerous transformation the Grand Palais, Chanel’s show venue, went through over the years, Karl Lagerfeld remained fairly earthbound. It was not until their latest show at Paris Fashion Week  that Chanel literally took thing out of this world.

For its Fall 2017 show, Chanel created its own space station inside Paris’s iconic Grand Palais  kicking off the last day of Paris Fashion Week with perhaps the most Instagrammed moment thus far. The rocket ship actually took off at the end of the show and rose 33 feet in the air. To the tune of “Rocket Man,” and it was nothing short of epic.

Going along with the set, the collection itself was inspired by outer space. Futuristic metallic boots, spacesuit printed dresses, space shawls, galactic prints and more walked the runway.
