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!

Our Friend Petronella made this Mimicry design for an easy chair, in the same (or nearly similar fabric), for a residential home in 2010. Petronella called it “The Hunt”
The Resort 2016 shows for women came before the men’s pret-a-porter Spring 2016 fashion shows. What these “seasons” have in common is the (Chinese) Silk Satin BomberJacket. For men it is Louis Vuitton who really embraced this jacket the most: The Bomber’s were full force shiny, bright colored or in pastels and heavily embroidered. As you can see in the images above, LV was certainly not the only fashion house to show this garment. The jackets for women are more demure, and with a little less frequency seen. Also the fit is more retro eighties: Cropped to the waist. Maybe we’ll see them more and embelleshed at the women’s pret-a-porter shows for Spring 2016? We think so! For sure!
