Fashion goes green
There was a bucolic, pastoral feel to the Grand Palais for Chanel’s Spring-Summer 2010 Ready-To-Wear show, as designed by Karl Lagerfeld. Against a stunning backdrop of gold and green straw, wood and wild grasses, models moved around a 9-metre high barn in a very “organic-generation” setting.“I spent my childhood in the countryside. You hear a lot about the environment these days. I thought it would be interesting to put a fashion twist on it”, said Karl Lagerfeld. Proof that fashion and the environment can go hand in hand.
