Paris FW fall 08/09: Chanel’s merry-go-round accessory display

Even if you don’t check out focus on what looks Karl Lagerfeld design for Chanel’s fall winter 2008/09 runway in Paris this week (FYI it was gorgeous coats and capes focusing on a more defined silhouette and cinched in at the waist) you couldn’t go past the Chanel accessory Ferris Wheel /Merry-Go-Round.

As Lady Amanda Harlech says in the clip below, the Merry-Go-Round was used to display all the fall winter 2008/09 accessories – once Lagerfefld saw it, he apparently decided to not accessorize the models at all. From Chanel logo brooches, strings of pearls, hats, ballet flats, the 2.55 bag, bangles and necklaces, it was all recreated in a larger form and used instead of horses on the Merry-Go-Round.

Genius. Though not surprising when you factor in the fact that just last month Chanel’s Haute Couture collection featured a replica giant Chanel tweed jacket?

What a video of the show, focusing mainly on Amanda Harlech talking about the collection and the Merry-go-Round, below.
