That Iceberg At Chanel Was Real!?
Maybe we were a little slow to realize this, but apparently that huge iceberg in the middle of Chanel’s runway was in fact a real iceberg. Imported from Sweden. (Seriously, where was our Chanel Paris Fashion Week invite this year? We’re missing extremely important news here, people!) We’re actually not surprised that Uncle Karl would stop at nothing to realize his snowman-chic show, but these details via New York mag are still pretty crazy: The ‘berg weighed 265 tons, needed 35 ice sculptors for a six-day carving job, and required a room temperature of a chilly 28-degrees Fahrenheit (you can bet Anna kept her fur coat on during the show). We wonder what Lagerfeld is planning next that could possibly outdo transporting a giant hunk of the tundra to Paris? [New York Mag]
