A theorist and a fashion house stroll into the same exhibition complex.

The theorist is Walter Benjamin, and the fashion house is Chanel. What links them together is the Grand Palais.
Lost in Karl’s Supermaket. Natasha wrote a killer piece on architecture, commodity culture, Chanel and distractions. SO. GOOD. Check it out.
Definitely silhouettes we’ve seen before at Balenciaga, which has become almost identifiable as Nicolas’ designs, and now with the leather works of LV. A strong collection. Not so extravagant, shouty, and in-your-face surprises, but restrained, which is a great first.

I think I have to sleep on this and go through the collection more carefully later.
