Chanel's 2013 Cruise presentation was all about France's Golden Age before the revolution. The show took place in the Versailles gardens and was a mix of the 18th century Marie Antoinette look and contemporary fabrics, such as tech denims, plastics etc.. The recent elections added a hint of irony to the frivolous setting and collection. Karl Lagerfeld perfectly described his last masterpiece(s) as "Versailles In A Socialist France".
