Pop Up Décor: Chanel 2009 Haute Couture

These amazing pictures are of a Chanel Runway for the 2009 spring and summer collection. The gorgeous white paper flower arrangements of roses, daisies, leaves, and petals decorated the massive columns and entryway staircase of the Cambon-Capucines Pavilion in Paris. They used 7000 handmade flowers and it took 4800 hours to put it all together. What a dramatic effect! On a smaller scale this could be a great way to decorate a dinning table or an entryway for a special occasion. More photos after the jump...

Chanel's last collection is like a new beginning. As Karl Lagerfiled said: "A white page, a linear and timeless graphic interpretation. It's like a starting point for the story of this new era, for which all the details still need to be written. This is why I chose paper as the theme for the couture collection this season."
