There Was Legit A Chanel Rocket Launch At The Label's AW17 Show

Lift off!
Subtlety is obviously not a concept available to Karl Lagerfeld's brain — with previous Fashion Week shows involving the likes of data centres, protests, grocery stores and so on — so of course the guy made an actual Chanel rocket and launched the damn thing at today's AW17 show. BRB just got Savage Garden on repeat.
The moment was soundtracked by Elton John's 'Rocket Man', and proved that no amount of cliché could mess with our fascination with specticale and urge to Instagram it. The space theme continued through the collection, with heaps of silver foil fabrications (defs a material that's ~having a moment~ this season), Space Race-style hair, astronaut collars and truly bugged-out eyewear.
