When I heard that Chanel's Spring 2016 show was set to be airport-themed, I couldn't help but smile; it was one of those (somewhat frequent) moments where I feel like Karl Lagerfeld personally cares about my happiness. After all, where do you think about bags more than the airport? And, of course, Chanel delivered.
For the occasion, Lagerfeld and co. transformed the Grand Palais into a mock airport terminal complete with baggage check, numbered gates, a departures and arrivals board (listing past Chanel destination show locales), and baggage carts stamped with double-C logos.
The airplane motif carried from the set onto the clothing and accessories, with one dress patterned like an arrivals board, and a sweater and pair of knit pants set in a repeating airplane intarsia. The red, white, and blue airplane pins that adorned some looks will make it possible for any ensemble to be ready for travel from the Chanel terminal
