CHANEL’s Christmas Wonderland!21 dicembre, 2008 alle 3:43 pm | Pubblicato su CHRISTMAS TIME | 12 commenti
This week, in the window of Paris department store Printemps (Paris’ answer to Selfridges) Karl Lagerfeld unveiled Chanel’s Christmas wonderland.
The dream like scene sees hand-made puppets of legendary Chanel designer Coco Chanel frolicking in Chanel’s imaginary Christmas dream garden. The garden is filled with 2,500 yellow, gold and black Christmas baubles, while the Coco dolls, fly through the air (on frilled parasols) thanks to the technology of French animator Jean Claude De Hix.
Each puppet is stylishly attired in a modern, almost space age take on the classic quilted Chanel suit and every puppet has Mademoiselle Chanel’s iconic blunt fringed bob.
The window will be on display until the new year.
It would be fun if you could post your local CHANEL boutique’s Christmas windows as well!
Here’s the one unveiled by Karl, at Le Printemps department store in Paris:
