It’s no secret my love for paper sculpting, and so when I saw the Chanel Spring 2015 Couture Runway, I was instantly enthralled. The floral theme featured an arboretum of white cardboard palms constructed under a glass ceiling. And, better yet, they moved!
It took 6 months to produce the 300 flowers that decorated the set. Each featured their own engine, and at the start of the show, Baptiste Giabiconi (Karl Lagerfeld’s muse) “watered” them and brought the mechanical blooms to life.
The mostly-white backdrop had pops of color that complimented the couture outfits, some of which were heavily adorned with brilliant flowers. Images of the set and clothing below!
