    This morning in Paris, Karl Lagerfeld presented the spring ’14 Chanel Haute Couture fashion show in all its glittering awesomeness, and while most Chanel Haute Couture shows are directional and tres fancy, this one really took Lagerfeld’s vision to the next level... and that level is a level we can really get behind. Instead of creating a stuffy environment for billionaires and the fashion elite, the Chanel team created “a modern and minimalist nightclub” to showcase Lagerfeld’s streetwear-inspired collection that included crop tops, bodysuits, sheer evening gowns, sneakers, and, yes, even fanny packs. Scored by a live performance by French musician Sebastien Tellier, known for his synth-based electro pop grooves, and an orchestra, the show was evidence that Lagerfeld is taking fashion inspiration from Chanel’s younger muses. The Kristen Stewart vibes in the sneakers paired with evening dresses was evidence enough, but there were also touches of Grimes in the bodysuits and ’90s accessories.
    The runway show was also opened and closed by Cara Delevingne, a model as famous for her face as she is for her seamless fusing of streetwear and high fashion. Since it seems that Karl Lagerfeld is taking a little inspiration from us, we decided to take a little inspiration from him and pick out 10 life lessons to learn from the Chanel Haute Couture show. So if you’re looking for a new way to wear your kicks, or wondering how to make face jewels cool again, we’re here to show you how with a little help from Chanel.
