Does it mock any real struggle?

Haven’t had huge amounts of time to catch up on Paris fashion week yet. Eyeing through Chanel, and while the boulevard setup is amazing – I like it almost as much as last’s seasons grocery shopping – there’s something about the finale that feels, well… Perhaps not worthy of one, but still up for a discussion. The models came out with signs of “protest”. So the discussions started: Does it mock any real struggle, the bourgeoisie dressed up as the proletariat? (No doubt, it’s at the very least a faux-feminist march.) Or does it, er, start conversations? Is Lagerfeld poking fun at designers pretending that their work isn’t really about consumerism? (I cannot imagine he isn’t.) Either way, the #ChanelProtest of course hit the hot topic lists of the internetz. I’m not feeling provoked by this act in itself. I’m endlessly tired of Lagerfeld and wish he would shut his month and do the handicraft of the Chanel collections to the talking.

Susie Lau generously sums it all up, together with some amazing photos of the garments. (And I guess the mentioned craftmanship required to make the actual clothes adds to the discussion itself, as well as the welcomed “dress for yourself” styling.)
