Ecology With Karl

“This is high-fashion ecology. It must not look like some sloppy demonstration!”

Karl Lagerfeld

        During fashion week I have a ritual. When the latest runway snapshots are posted on VOGUE.com I go through every photo and then read the review. When it came to the Chanel Spring 2016 Couture show, I wish I had done the opposite. I wasn’t freaking out over anything, instead I was just left impressed with the tailoring and bead work. So why did the Sarah Mower review have me go back and click through everything again? Because unlike other Chanel shows which have become magical productions, this time around the set consisted of… grass, simplicity, a purpose. Organic yarn, recycled paper, and wood chips, all materials that contributed in making the garments sustainable. It makes sense for the current times, but Chanel is Chanel. Whether these efforts continue into Fall 2016 is the real question.
