Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld recently debuted his new exhibition, titled “Christmas: Dreams of Far Away,” at the famous Printemps store in Paris. Consisting of 11 window displays all conceived by the creative genius and even the fashion house itself, the inspiration of the exhibition was sourced from Chanel’s prolific history which includes the legendary destinations that have been part of its seasonal developments. The lineup of destinations included Los Angeles, London, Paris, New York, the Byzantium, Biarritz, Moscow, Venice, Shanghai, Tokyo and the Cap d”Antibes. Paris was represented by Lagerfeld as his photographic works are scattered throughout along with Jean-Claude Dehix designed marionettes immortalizing him. Furthermore, some of Paris’s well-known landmarks have been depicted as well, including the Eiffel Tower, the Place Vendôme, the Arc de Triomphe and the Printemps store itself. Covering the façade with stellar aesthetics, Printemps’ stunning architectural design was also highlighted by some of Chanel’s signature details.
