Walking the Blue Carpet: Chanel Spring Couture 2012

"After the red carpet, the blue carpet," annouced Karl Lagerfeld at the debut of Chanel's Spring 2012 Couture collection. The catwalk was transformed into a blue carpet inside a lifesize jet. The jet featured dim lighting with exit signs, also complete with fluffy clouds overhead and navy, moonogrammed Chanel carpet. The chairs even swivelled around to offer a full view of the runway. Lagerfeld, who is quite the jetsetter, said there is nothing more relaxing than being on a plane. This serenity may also the reasoning behind the choice of color in the colleciton. The collection featured more than 122 shades of blue! Another visionary, forward-looking show from Chanel!
