We’re always appreciative when a fashion show offers us something beyond the clothes to look at up close. This morning at Chanel’s spring 2014 show, Karl Lagerfeld satisfied show-goers’ needs to see more than just the usual ephemeral runway looks as they briskly walk by, with a full-on gallery installation.
And it was an art gallery done Karl Lagerfeld-style, which is to say: weird, crazy, and awesome. For those of you whose invitations got lost in the mail, we compiled a gallery of the coolest pieces exhibited, from a Chanel No.5 robot to a naked man carrying a Chanel wheel, to a large double-c sculpture made entirely out of perfume bottles.
We can only hope that if and when Lagerfeld stages a real Chanel exhibition in a museum, it’s this bizarre.
