Whole New Level of Protest

It seems impossible for most of everyone to be as creative as Monsieur Karl. I refuse to call him Herr which means 'Mister' in German because all he wants all these years is to be french. I am giving him that, right now. Sometimes I wonder, if beloved Gabrielle Chanel had her chance to experience some people call it 'rebirth' or reincarnation, i bet it would be Monsieur Karl. Too bad Karl was born when Gabrielle went through difficult time for fashion during World War II. For short trivia, her name was never been Coco. Coco was her stage name when she regularly sang a song titled Coco on friday nights long before Chanel empire. Back to 2014, when Karl did make Gabrielle proud. Have you seen Boulevard Chanel? Do you still remember what Karl made for us in Spring/Summer 2013 that took place at Grand Palais with gigantic windmills, two enormous solar panels at the entrance that really support its eco-technological theme? That was huge.

And i found myself wondering what is really going on in Karl's mind? Can he sleep at night? Because if i were him, i won't have time for shower or picking my daily outfit. And now, groundbreaking-ly (is that even a word?) start new season in 2015 by carrying modest idea that somehow suits current circumstance around the world but he aced it anyway. Chanel's Spring/Summer 2015 RTW fashion show brings feminist protest into a whole another level. The protest was led by Cara Delevingne wearing suits and holding quilted megaphone, and followed by Kendall Jenner, Joan Smalls, Eddie Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Charlotte Free Georgia May Jagger, Caroline de Maugret, Toni Gran, and Gisele Bundchen. Who need an army if Karl can get them?
