Move aside budget travel, meet Chanel’s luxury airline

PARIS – The sky was the limit in Karl Lagerfeld’s aviation-themed Chanel show on Tuesday, which saw an entire airport re-created under the lofty expanse of Paris’ Grand Palais.

Guests couldn’t quite believe their eyes as they entered one of Lagerfeld’s most ambitious shows yet.

Young Japanese fashionistas bumped in to each other to take selfies beneath a giant electronic passenger information table, as model Cara Delevingne, singer Vanessa Paradis and tennis star Maria Sharapova breezed by.

Hostesses sat at check-in desks plastered in “Chanel Airlines” – with departure lounge chairs sprawling for hundreds of meters (yards).

Destinations on the board – Shanghai, Dallas, Salzburg, Dubai, Tokyo – were a showy check list of all the cities in which Chanel has recently presented collections, highlighting the global nature of one of the world’s most lucrative luxury brands.

But the show itself, bien sur, was in Terminal No. 5, a reference to the brand’s famous perfume.

“The inspiration is travel, long distance travel to every destination,” Lagerfeld said, sipping a glass of mineral water from a silver platter.

The 95 diverse ready-to-wear looks riffed off the voyaging theme – with blue, red and white sweaters slung around shoulders, dresses printed with electronic passenger data, comfy check sandals, and bejeweled Chanel suitcases that will literally fly off the shelves.

There were even comfy ‘70s flared jeans, which Lagerfeld later acknowledged were made from exorbitantly-priced soft crepe.

“I like the idea of beautifully made clothes, used and worn like street wear,” he explained.

Some of the looks in the swirling check patterns suffered from their pure exuberance. But the collection had a little bit for every woman from every country in the world.

Only a few people can travel

Only a few people can travel in style! The rest like to travel and to spend as little money as they can. It is not because they are cheap, it is because they want to travel more and only in this way they are able to fulfill their dreams. Also, they should resort to GPS applications or even classic maps to understand the new area and to not get lost. There are companies which offer quality UAV mapping and other types of mapping solutions and some of their clients are tourists which don't even know that they use a certain service.
