Purple Diary

[March 9 2010]

Chanel Iceberg shipped from Sweden for the Chanel F/W 2010/11 show by Karl Largefeld at the Grand Palais.

The designer is sending an ecological message to the fashion world, and the world in general, against global warming, which he called Global Cooling in line with his honed sense of paradox and irony. Whether or not the climate warming up or cooling down these days in Paris, is a true political message. We can not fight the ecological disaster without a new political creativity, inventing a new economical (anti-capitalistic) system. It’s amazing that Karl is becoming a Marxist this season!
