Who doesn't love to travel? While you love getting to your final destination, getting there can be traumatic, especially when you have to contend with long lines at check-in, airport security, and delayed flights. But what if you could fly Chanel Airlines? Well, that might not be far from becoming reality. The luxury fashion house is notorious for creating insane locations for its fashion shows, but this one really blew us away. Head designer Karl Lagerfeld and the Chanel team transformed their runway into a completely customized airport to showcase the S/S 16 collection at Paris Fashion Week, complete with Chanel Airlines branding, memorabilia, bag trolleys, a check-in counter, a departures board, an airport lounge, and gate signs. Lagerfeld said the idea for a Chanel airport came about from his personal experience with flying. He told told Dazed magazine co-founder Jefferson Hack: "I don't star in movies; I am not a famous singer. I have no scandal, and yet I cannot go out in public because they all want to take my picture, so it's almost impossible for me to travel through airports."
