Karl Lagerfeld creatively embraced a fashionable cart-pushing delight around the world with a phenomenal performance for Chanel’s Fall/Winter Ready-to-Wear 14/15 Fashion Show at Paris Fashion Week.
The exclusive Chanel Shopping Center is this season’s most excitingly talked about fashion extravaganza. The Grand Palais in Paris was transformed into a luxury supermarket as isles of Chanel goods were stocked from Chanel branded biscuits, eggs, poultry, cleaning materials.. Chanel Tea included The Little Black Tea and Jasmin Dragon Pearls. Paint colors were numbered and named accordingly : 1903 Bleu Confection, 1914 Gris Jersey, 1954 Jaune Etienne.. From Choco Chanel to Coco Pops we loved how the marche was one we can relate to. Camellias were selectively embellished within the designs. Basically, Karl did make sure the supermarket was well equipped with all essentials and a little more Chanel luxe !
The Runway took the audience through a Chanel Shopping spree as models showcased the collection in a fun-frenzy yet chic manner.
Chanel Crop-tops, waisted chain-belts, sneaker boots and rag tweeds were the highlight of the show.
Karl has brought reality to the runway this season as he takes the modern day woman through an ordinary everyday life activity, the Chanel way. “After the art show, I said, ‘What can we do worse, something [more about] today?’ The supermarket is a thing of today’s life. Even the woman who wears expensive clothing goes to the supermarket, but she shouldn’t go in stilettos.”
Created solely for this occasion has got the world enticed to the idea of an actual Chanel supermarket.

Banana Republic is a Clothing & Accessories retailer owned by American Multinational corporation The Gap Inc. It was founded in 1978 by Mel & Patricia Ziegler with a safari theme; in 1983 Gap purchased the company and gave it more of an upscale image.
Although San Francisco is home to Banana Republic, the Spring 2014 Collection preview brought California to Dubai, taking us through the brand’s West Coast heritage, definitely an evening spent in ‘True California’.
This season’s Ready-to-Wear unveiled Banana Republic’s classical American appeal expressing an authentically fresh and friendly sportswear collection. A neutral color palette was definitely the inspiration behind this contemporary collection. Acting head of Woman’s design mentions her melange of “Sonoran desert shades; sand, oatmeal and hints of grounding coral”. The pants silhouettes were causal and relaxed.. My favorite were the classical ivory linen & cotton navy pique trousers styled with ankle-strapped shades of brun sandals. From flattering fluted skirts, to soft borrowed from the ‘boyfriend’ white & beige chinos cuffed right above the ankles.. all were seen classically coupled with a tonal basket- weave sweater and Banana Republic’s signature safari Jacket.
Color-blocked tuxedo stripes, braided bangle bracelets and monochrome bucket bags were alive throughout the musical night. Tailored khaki suits, sophisticated pea-coats and light wash jeans took the hype in menswear this season.
As we watched the sun set amidst the lush green gardens surrounded by fresh water fountains of youth & joy.. swings & hammocks danced the night away to a lively ambiance where guests could kick-back to some fresh lemonade, candy, canapes and live barbecue.
Models and puppies dressed the garden with Banana Republic’s west coast feel while we got to go home with a fun-frenzy flip book and a pretty pink & tan leather plush pouch.
It was all about California Love in Dazzling Dubai
