Bringing home the final day of a month of fashion shows, street style spectacles and one too many cocktails parties is the pinnacle of French fashion - the Chanel catwalk show. The Grand Master, King Karl, has the power to upstage everything that has happened in the previous cities in such a way that you entire Instagram feed is flooded with the Chanel mall, Chanel airways, every colourful car in Cuba and of course the Chanel casino. Quite extraordinary feats of architecture the Chanel show has become an icon feature on the fashion schedule and long may it continue.
Lagerfeld outdid himself during the AW17 show season, by ordering a life-size rocket ship reconstruction, inside the Grand Palais in Paris. Not only did he turn the Palais into a space station but the rocket actually appeared to take off during the February 2017 show.
Before the spectacle of the Cruise show even began the Chanel fun and games had only just started. The streets of Havana were a carnival themed riot of coloured chevrolets. Instagram was flooded for days.
