Paris match

Chanel brings its Eiffel Tower-inspired A/W 2017 Haute Couture set to London

The maison of Chanel is an emblem of Paris, and at its A/W 2017 Haute Couture show in July, the brand nodded to another symbol of the city, erecting a huge model of the Eiffel Tower in the centre of its runway space at the Grand Palais. Models strode down a gravel garden path as the signature of the Paris skyline loomed above them. For Chanel’s Haute Couture presentation at its New Bond Street showroom in London last week, the brand presented a miniature version of the Grand Palais set-up. With zoomed in versions of the Eiffel Tower in tiled prints on the walls, and sections of graphic metal plinths, the immersive installation left guests feeling as if they were positioned on the observation desk of the tallest building in Paris.
