Wow, again a great fashion spectacle by the House of Chanel; they created every girl’s dream, a lifesize dollhouse! Build in the Grand Palais in Paris with a green lawn and a blue sky……We also really loved the retro hairdo’s created by Sam McKnight.
Make sure to watch the instagram video of the finale at @vogueparis
It’s an airport…..It’s a performance……Well; it’s a fashion show!

Kendall Jenner in Chanel spring 2016 clothes
This fashion show for the Spring/Summer Chanel season of 2016 reminds us of the movie “The Truman Show” (1998) directed by Peter Weir. As you all may (or not) remember; that movie is about the life of a man starring in a tv reality show, as himself, in his own life, but he doesn’t know that he’s being filmed and that his surroundings, including people, are a constructed reality. In 1998 this was called a science-fiction type of movie. We’re not sure if the real-life-soap-stars-family The Kardashians exsisted on TV in 1998, but they sure do now: and Kendall Jenner (that’s the half-sister of the Kardashians) strutted this Chanel Airlines runway being a model. That fact ends this petite story in a nice, full circle…..it’s all fake but not so much!

Yes! Jean Paul Goude made another ad mini-movie for Chanel! After juggling with a perfume bottle of Chance, in 2011, the models now, in 2015, take up bowling, with many bottles of Chance, fun! Our all-time favorite Jean Paul Goude/Chanel collaboration is the one with Vanessa Paradis whistling and spilling Coco perfume, made in 1991. Oh and also the ad for Chanel Egoiste, made in 1990.

A custom made fake garden in white! How wonderful is this Chanel runway venue at the Grand Palais in Paris? Simply astonishing, so much that we won’t elaborate on the clothes, check them out here for yourself.
“It took six months to make the 300 flowers that decorated the Chanel set today. Each of them had its own engine, and when at the show’s start (model) Baptiste Giabiconi applied a theatrical splash from a CC-branded watering can and they simultaneously burst into mechanical bloom,” (read more at style.com) WOW!

The Chanel Cruise (a.k.a. resort collection) 2015 show was held in Dubai on an island privately owned by Sheikh Hamdan on May 13th in 2014. Such richness! What a venue, especially built for this occasion! Almost unbelievable that this is actually just a runway. We at Mimi Berlin don’t care for the clothes anymore, and neither should you! It’s the venue that’s the most interesting part of this show. We do wonder; What happened to the building three weeks after the show? Is it still standing, is it abandoned or has somebody moved in? Or maybe it’s a Chanel Mall now? Other questions rise: were the European and American journalists, buyers, celebrity’s and what have you, flown in by Chanel?
For Free? Can’t find the answers to these questions anywhere. It’s a pity “they” never write about those interesting facts, and that we don’t have the time to investigate.

Just in time our beloved Globe Trotting Couple, Mr and Mrs J., visited The Little black jacket: Chanel’s classic revisited, a photographic exhibition, at the ArtScience Museum in Singapore by Karl Lagerfeld and Carine Roitfeld. This exhibition has been traveling all over the world since April 2012. Singapore was it’s last stop. According to Mr and Mrs J. the exhibition had a snobbish feel to it but it was beautiful none the less. Continue reading →
