Chanel, in its last fashion shows, it took the runway to the airport, or the airport to the runway, indicating that life, in all its facets, is a bit like a perennial catwalk. But the airport is a place that has always fascinated people, meeting and passing of different stories, and photographs stolen from the great characters of movies and music on the go, from Marilyn Monroe to the Rolling Stones always intrigue us inexplicably. Perhaps because in those situations they seem more “human” or perhaps because there is nothing more fashion than an airport look, and that Lagerfeld has undoubtedly guessed.
There are celebrities who wear flawless outfits from head to toe, as Miranda Kerr, capable of mixing hyper feminine pieces with masculine character garments, or Gwyneth Paltrow and Resee Witherspoon, who wear basic look with style and personality; other, Cara Delevingne or Rita Ora for example, who prefer maxi joggers or skinny jeans.
Of course, we “humans” can be good to pack bikinis and sandals, as turtleneck and boots, but what about the airport look? An outfit that need to be comfortable and practical but meets and clashes with the desire to be flawless even up and down the escalators or before the check in.
Not everyone is able to combine style and practicality, that’s why it’s important to be inspired by the celebrities, dreaming to show off an effortlessy chic look like Jessica Alba next time you improvise a jet-set outfit.
