Karl Lagerfeld hosts private jet-themed show at Paris Fashion Week

Yesterday’s Chanel show by Karl Lagerfeld at Paris Fashion Week demonstrated the enduring appeal and glamour of private aviation for the fashion industry.

Chanel’s Haute Couture show at the Grand Palais in Paris was transformed into a ‘Chanel Air’ private jet, with numbered seats, strip lighting, emergency exits and of course, a bar.

Despite his unrivalled reputation for hosting lavish shows, Lagerfeld’s design was in fact far less lavish than the interiors of many real private jets. A real private aircraft would never have numbered seats – passengers can sit, recline or even sleep wherever they like. In fact some aircraft interiors have fully-fitted bedrooms and bathrooms, not to mention meeting rooms and spacious seating.

The Boeing Business Jet (BBJ) is one larger private charter aircraft that offers a large, luxury interior that is suitable for the most discerning of fashionistas. The 5,390 cubic feet of cabin can be designed almost any way desired. Most configurations divide the cabin into four compartments. The four compartments generally consist of a board room, a lounge, a VIP bedroom, a business office, and two lavatories with showers. Separate galley, washroom and luggage storage are also included.

Other haute couture interiors in the sky are offered by the new Gulfstream G650 – which will be available for private charter later this year – and Embraer’s Lineage.
