Chanel 2017 Fashion Show
Did You Catch These Hidden Messages In Chanel's 2017 Fall/Winter Fashion Show?
The Venue Report
by The Venue Report

 

For anyone who remotely follows the world of fashion, you know the colossal show that Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel pulled off involving the gorgeous Grand Palais outfitted with a functioning rocket ship. Yes, rocket ship. The futuristic structured outfits, pumped up hair and Twiggy-esque makeup painted a neo-1960’s scene (after all, Mid Century is all the rage right now) complete with a rocket take off reminiscent of 1968.

What was perhaps the most striking element was the juxtaposition of the rocket ship taking off into the glass ceiling (well, almost) of the Grand Palais. Hidden messages ran throughout the show touching on the women’s rights movement historically as it originally gained momentum in the 1960’s all the way up to today where we’re facing unprecedented setbacks. Serious girl power vibes occurred throughout and ahem ladies, let’s break through the glass ceiling in 2017?

Brunch Bucketlist
Adding Brunch At This Parisian Bistro To Our Bucket List ASAP
Alyssa Brown
by Alyssa Brown



With its gorgeous historic buildings, inspiring street style, plentiful art scene, and incredible gastronomic experiences, Paris is surely on everyone’s bucket list. While the arrondissements near the River Seine tend to get a lot of tourists in and out, it’s the neighborhoods that spiral away from the river that exude that artsy, local vibe that should be at the top of your travel agenda.

Set in the vibrant area of Pigalle, a haven for Bohemians, artists, and trendsetters, Maison Lautrec is a café that’s as cozy and welcoming as your neighborhood restaurant, but a much cooler, Parisian version. If spending an afternoon sipping champagne and eating tarte tatin dripping in caramel sauce in a cooler-than-classic Parisian bistro is on your bucket list, this place is your dream come true.

Chateau La Durantie

La Durantie Est, 24270 Lanouaille, France

The beauty of the French Chateau La Durantie isn't subtle, understated or any kind of low-key - it's spectacular, opulent and utterly lovely for any fairy-tale celebration - which is how we like it. Built in 1830, as a residence for the Duke of Isley - it's nestled in Dordogne in the southwest of France. The Duke was revered as a national hero for his work as a statesman as well as his military service under Napoleon Bonaparte and King Louis Phillipe - but he had some pretty fabulous taste too!
