When Elle France featured Karl Lagerfeld grocery shopping, I should've known he would eventually have a supermarket theme for one of his collections. Well, that was definitely the case for his FW14/15 Collection. I think I was more smitten with the set than the collection. HaHaHa Chanel milk cartons, bottled water, and bright bottles of soda lit up my eyes. I loved the color of the fresh fruit that was displayed and given to the attendees. There was even a hardware section with Chanel chainsaws, gardening gloves and brooms. I didn't like the entire collection. I loved the sneakers, casual outfits that Cara D. wore (My midriff & hole days are over, but I would wear the orange one below! HaHaHa), and many of the coats that were showcased. I really fell head over heels for the accessories. The lait de coco milk carton...YES, please! The bracelet cuffs are gorgeous and HELLO that Chanel sweet tart necklace and bracelet set...SWOON! Loved the Chanel gummi fashion treats that were given to the attendees and look at the cute mini Chanel shopping bags that were given out. It took a lot of time to have containers designed and set up for this. It wasn't a hard concept, so I wouldn't call it genius. Just meticulous and tedious. I have a love/hate for Karl L. You guys know that. There was a lot to dislike about this collection, but there was also a lot that was sweet. I concentrated on the sweet details below. I think it would've been sweeter, if a portion of each sale would go to fighting world hunger (since it's a food theme). If I was a designer, that's what I would do. There's too many people hungry everyday, for this sort of extravagance. Just my thoughts. Oh well! This is fashion. NOTE: The Coco Puffs box below was from an artist on Instagram (not part of the collection). <singing> Shimmy Shimmy Coco Puffs! I have that Digital Underground "Kiss You Back" song stuck in my head. HaHaHa I attached a video of the Chanel runway show below.
