Always one for a grand finale, Karl Lagerfeld ended his Fall 2017 Chanel show this morning with a rocket ship literally taking off. It was the ultimate act of escapism (for those of us looking to escape the planet), but one question remains—where was it off to?
Perhaps to the moon, where Lagerfeld and his models could play among the stars? Or maybe the Chanel ladies are looking to holiday on Jupiter or Mars. Or Lagerfeld could be setting off to colonize one of the seven new planets recently discovered by NASA. If any company has enough money to invest in developing its own planet, it’s probably Chanel. Lagerfeld would likely rename the planet something Chanel-related, and everything would be done in a chic, black-and-white, minimalistic style. The planet’s biggest export (other than Chanel goods) would be perfumes and tweed. Cats would lounge everywhere.
At the very least, Lagerfeld is probably planning to use one of those mystery planets for a destination Resort show—after finally taking Chanel to Cuba, he just might have run out of places on Earth.
