>> HAH!  No sooner do I post something stating I'm on a very short short one-day break, I do a quick check of the inbox and find I could not WAIT to post these images I just discovered, courtesy of Luciano Fileti's behind the scenes coverage of Chanel's spring 2009 paper couture show that takes you on a pretty comprehensive deets journey that few fashion houses can provide (given there are boxes that are labelled with 'Hiver '55-55' etc etc….).  It's a close-up glimpse at those wonderful Katsuya Kamo's headpieces and then some inner-circle workroom shots that shows the team working hard at precise paper cut-outs…

    I saw this tv-programme last week, about Chanel. Then they chose to focus on Karl´s team mostly, those who make the hard work one sometimes forget exists. It was a bit too short, but lovely is always short.
