Chanel Spring 2013 by designer Karl Lagerfeld was the hot ticket of Paris fashion week. The show was staged at the magnificent Grand Palais des Champs-Elysées, one of the most historic sites in France. From giant icebergs to the apocalypse, the themes of the sets are always extraordinary. At Chanel, you can expect to see an unforgettable fashion show and a look that pushes fashion forward.

For Chanel Spring 2013 Karl Lagerfeld brought a whole new energy and vibe – installing 12 giant wind turbines with a solar panel runway to make his point that it’s time for a new mood of ease. With models wearing almost 100 different looks, there was an atmosphere of serenity and tranquillity on the enormous runway. The Chanel Spring 2013 collection was fresh, airy, light and modern.

As Karl explained after the show he wanted a Chanel collection that “you could identify in a second”, but there were no braids, bows, no chains and no logos in sight. The show was incredibly optimistic and the set underscored Karl’s vision of the future. “It’s all about energy”.

Find out why fashion editor Godfrey Deeny, Laetitia Casta and Leigh Lazark all agree Chanel is the greatest fashion show on earth. Watch our Chanel Spring 2013 fashion video here now.
