Jaw, meet floor. Karl Lagerfeld chose paper as a theme for Chanel’s Spring 2009 Couture Collection, and the images speak for themselves. Absolutely stunning. And, who would’ve guessed that Karl Lagerfeld loves paper?!
The set, created under the direction of Stéphane Lubrina, featured 7000 handmade paper flowers, made from glass based paper, which took a total of 4800 hours and a team of 40 people to create.
The georgeous head pieces worn by the models were also made from paper by Japanese hairstylist Katsuya Kamo. I really, really hope that the head pieces (all of the flowers, actually) go to some sort of fashion museum or collector’s home because my heart breaks thinking that they may be forgotten after the show. You can send some my way, Karl! – found via Poppytalk
