Carousel Inspiration ~ A Carousel at the Grand Palais

I adore this pretty, functioning Chanel carousel

and would love to enjoy a twirling ride.

In a spectacular setting in the Grand Palais, the maestro of Chanel transformed the catwalk into a fairground with a giant carousel as the centerpiece. In the place of horses, the many symbols of Chanel circled ~ quilted handbags, camellias, pearls, flacons, shoes, bijoux, bows, hats, lipstick and interlocking Cs.

At the end of the show, the carousel started to turn…….

Lagerfeld, a master of catwalk theatrics, dreams up incredible larger-than life sets.

And the music in the show is great ~ Blind by Hercules & Love Affair & Beatific by Glass Candy.
