Dear lord, when will Nigerian fashion shows attain to this level of money wasting in the name of creativity. For his latest trick, Lagerfeld went one step further, turning the runway into an elaborate approximation of a space program, complete with a rocket that launched during the show’s finale. The launch was accompanied by a soundtrack of Elton John’s “Rocket Man” and a prerequisite hashtag, #ChanelGroundControl. The set design complemented a collection inspired by outer space: dresses were built of metallic spacesuit material, while models’ sported elaborately coiffed hair—think Jane Fonda in Barbarella.
What do you make of Lagerfeld’s out of this world set design? Sound off in the comments below.
