Chanel Fall collection very ‘cool’. Minus four, in fact.

// Chanel launched their Fall 2010 ready-to-wear in Paris a few weeks ago, and what a way to kick off the season with none other than iceberg’s transported from Scandinavia.

The iceberg’s weighed in at 265 tons and stood at 28 feet high.

At the Grand Palais (where the show took place), the room temperature had to be consistently monitored to ensure it was kept at four degrees below Celsius to keep the ice in tact. The iceberg took a total of 6 days and 35 ice sculpters, who were sourced from all over the world. During the show, the models stomped through the shallow puddles around the enormous icebergs, wetting the fur on their boots.

On top of this collection being breathtakingly brilliant, what I loved most is that even though Karl Lagerfeld used an abundance of fur for this season, every single inch was fake. While this issue has been taking flight for quite some time, the number of designers that still refuse to concede to faux-fur is astounding. Seriously, why use real fur when you can fake it?
