Chanel Carbs, Kendall Jenner and Everything Else You Need to Know About Today’s Nutso Chanel Supermarket Show

Karl Lagerfeld's Fall 2014 Chanel collection walked the runway earlier today and for those of us who woke up to the odd runway imagery trickling out of Paris, there's a lot to process. Last season, the Chanel show was set at an art gallery; this time, the German designer took his collection to the supermarché, a move which embodies the art vs. commerce dilemma at the heart of fashion (and at the heart of Lagerfeld's career as a designer).

The Chanel designer is known for his spectacular sets (for example: at his Pre-Fall collection in January, Lagerfeld created a Dallas rodeo and seated guests in parked cars, like at a drive-thru), but this season, more than ever, the elaborate setting dominated the show. Below, we try to wrap our minds around all the branded products stocking the Chanel supermarket shelves, the supermodel shoppers browsing its aisles — and yes, some of the fashions, too. 

  • Tweed Soda comes in eight flavors: Lemon, Orange, Tropical, Energy, Mint, Tea, Cola and Cola Light.

  • Up-and-coming model and Kardashian family member Kendall Jenner walked in the show, which either cements her status as a serious fashion model or was intended as commentary on the soulless consumer culture, depending on who you ask.

  • In line with the growing flat shoe trend, the ultra-casual grocery store setting, and also the exquisite sneakers which appeared on the runway at Chanel's Spring 2014 Couture show — the brand's supermarket models wore gym shoes.

  • We're all about comfortable, sporty shoes, but perhaps these sneaker-boot mutants are questionable:

  • Jarrod Scott was the only male model to appear at the show. He and his runway partner were styled in the bougiest way possible and carried Chanel shopping bags.
