Photo of the week: inside Chanel’s rose garden
Once again, Karl Lagerfeld wowed the audience at Paris fashion week with his Grand Palais transformation, the venue for his latest haute couture collection.
As creative director of Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld has turned transforming the fashion house’s regular Grand Palais venue in Paris into an art form.
A space station, a datacentre and a supermarket have all been recent incarnations, but today it was something more romantic: a rose garden.
“Lush lawns, a fountain and fetchingly mossed urns formed the centrepiece to a bowered catwalk that ran beneath a maze of leaf-green trellising, canopied by roses and flanked by stone benches for the audience,” reports Jess Cartner-Morley from the front row.
