First Look: Chanel’s Airport-Themed Spring 2016 Runway Show

One show that everyone looks forward to each season: Chanel. Karl Lagerfeld is known for his creative take on runway shows, often turning spaces into elaborate scenes. Remember his Fall 2014 Chanel-themed grocery store, complete with grocery carts, branded carbs and more? Or the casino-themed Fall 2015 Haute Couture show which included celebs like Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart placing bets? Well, this season is one for the books as well. His inspiration? The ever-glamorous airport lounge.

Lagerfeld transported guests to a chic Chanel Airlines terminal which, as you can imagine, included small but important details like retro airline ticket invites, ticketing booth, baggage handlers (including Baptiste Giabiconi and Brad Kroening), rows of attached chairs at the “gate,” brightly colored aviators, fashionable quilted luggage and more.

Models wore a variety of different looks, from two-piece tweed suits and dresses to patterned prints, proving that this airline is the source of all things chic. Lagerfeld even designed his version of comfy travel attire (aka airport sweats), which included loose silk pieces with bright patterns.

And, of course, no runway of Karl Lagerfeld’s would be complete without Kendall Jenner starring the show.
