In an age in which the fashion world embraces art, and art embraces fashion, the question posed at the vibrant Chanel show might not be “Is fashion art?” but “Is art fashion?” After the breathtakingly spectacular environments that Karl Lagerfeld has conceived for Chanel Couture in recent years, this season’s set was a palate cleanser. All the focus was on the superb clothes, each one a miracle of construction, workmanship, and colorful embellishment. The show was set in a vast “art gallery” created under the dome of the Grand Palais.

The clothes themselves seemed more real-life than rarefied. “Life is not a red carpet,” Karl explained. “This is for daily life. I wanted color, and a fraîcheur. It’s a very happy mood.”

Each model commanded presence and attention as they floated down the catwalk.  Makeup and hair were equally colorful, bright hues and deep saturations of color that complimented each look as well as the show’s artistic and joyous mood!

The bags alone were one of my favorite touches to the show. All very colorful and unique. I am utterly and completely obsessed with the orange and pink neon clutch pictured below!
