At a time when people follow the adventures of astronaut Thomas Pesquet aboard the International Space Station closely, the cosmos and stars inspire Karl Lagerfeld. While earlier this week, the moon and the comets dotted the patterns of the Dior collection, an homage to Christian Dior’s passion for astrology, the Chanel Ground Control (to major Tom?) collection presented this afternoon in Paris, came to an end with the spectacular launch of a double C stamped-rocket under the glass roof of the Grand Palais. The countdown and take-off orchestrated by Karl  were operated from the n ° 5 launch pad, a nod to the brand’s flagship fragrance. The machine rose several meters from the ground, probably one of the best fashion shows ever made. Karl and Chanel took six months to arrange this set.
