Trust Karl Lagerfeld to reinvent street style by erecting his own street – Boulevard Chanel” – inside the Grand Palais, for models to strut down to, looking as if they’re just going for a stroll in a mix of classic cardigans (as worn by Gisele), bright prints and reinvented tweedy suits.
The finale saw the models taking part in a mock demonstration, carrying banners and placards saying things like”tweed is better than tweet” and “make fashion not war” while Cara and Gisele shouted through megaphones “What do we want? When do we want it?”
Now that’s one fun show!
Rapid Transit is a short film commissioned by Dutch footwear label HUB about the London Underground and why people traveling on it don’t talk to each other. The tube is also the inspiration for their Autumn/Winter 2014 theme. The different textures found in the underground stations are translated to materials with a worn-out, but stylish look.
It’s an edgy, fun short film with some surprising and interesting results. Watch it here:

Gareth Pugh finally presented his new collection in Paris following his earlier performance at New York Fashion Week. As yesterday was the Autumn equinox, Pugh’s collection was fully informed by the pagan rituals attached to such calendar watersheds. There are steer skulls made from papier-mache and the colours he used are a very earthy palette with brown, black, white and greys.
