Chanel - S/S Paris 2012

 When looking at runway collections i always look at chanel collections first as they put on such a inspiring show.This year was no different Karl Lagerfeld and his creative team turned the grand palais in Paris into a underwater wonderland. A large shell centred the show which was created as a stage for the talented Florence Welch from Florence and the machine.While models walked round the shell Florence sang songs from her debut single 'what the water gave us' to tie in the underwater theme .Her voice and echoing harp created a surreal atmosphere. models showed off pearls, tweed and tulle inspired by the sea-Think shells and pearlescent colors.Florence is rumoured to be becoming endorsed for Chanel and her latest video preview a collection of chanel couture.

I came across this video when i went  to the trend boutique trend forecasting workshop.I found it really interesting it doesn't make much sense at first view the video, but when you watch it again you begin to understand the meaning especially from a trend view .Basically a angered and frustrated french streer artist Kidult is infatuation by the commercialisation of the graffiti movement, Kidult has taken to the streets of Paris in an effort to reclaim his craft. In a retaliation against major luxury labels, Kidult has tagged a string of stores in recent months .Such as colette, Agn├ęs b, JC/DC , Dior and Supreme. The video above features a one-on-one interview with Kidult in his workshop and follows along as the vandal hits several major Parisian shopping destinations.

I also found that this video relates to trends such as 'Radical' which stands for various themes as ; mixing things up creating controversy ,creating a change to the country, using unexpected techniques,urban rebellion,attacks on stores ,sign of protest, time for change, no boundaries of technology,defacing & creating new propaganda .This way of thinking and this theme would reflect how fashion is changed for example; print and knit mixes,contrasting layers,harsh undertones of dark tones.Heres some images of the stores after Kildult work.
