Fashion Statement: Why we all appear to be heading in onesie direction

Everyone’s at it for winter. It’s comforting, it keeps you warm, it’s snuggly and it’s nice.  So why not go for it, in the privacy of our own homes? I’m talking about the ubiquitous trend for a onesie, of course – or for those less au fait with street parlance, an  all-in-one. A jumpsuit. A catsuit. Actually  a catsuit is a bit different, but it’s still part  of the all-in-one family.

The Chanel ready-to-wear show in Paris featured turbines

Lagerfeld's latest big idea: more is more

Karl Lagerfeld installed a suitably polished wind farm in the monumental Grand Palais for his show for Chanel in Paris yesterday. In terms of scale, this was the biggest production of the week – there was more floor space, more models, more clothes and a larger audience.
