The Grand Palais was the site of the recent Chanel Haute Couture which was decorated like the interior of an Ice Castle. Dresses were mostly kept short and appeared to be extremely wearable. Wearability was also evident as the models walked the runway in sneakers and kneepads (pictured below), perhaps the Kaiser's homage to the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi.
