Karl Lagerfeld chooses a feminist rally for his latest fashion show

The Grand Palais plays host to a protest

by 02 October 2014

The latest Chanel show will never be forgotten.

Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais into a magnificent street spectacle. While the designer chose a “supermarket show” for last season’s event, the Chanel’s spring 2015 collection definitely topped his last presentation.

Chanel’s latest collection, full of ’70s-inspired outfits, complete with wide leg trouser suits, knee length skirts, patterned knee-high boots, and shirts in shades of purple, fuchsia and burnt orange, at the Paris fashion show, were accessorised with signs such “Feminism Not Masochism” and “Ladies First” and quilted megaphones. Even the only male model to take part in the feminist protest waved a “He For She”.

The words, “Tweed is better than tweets,” was seen on another banner bringing about some comic relief besides announcing the latest collection’s usage of the House favourite tweed.
