About this Article

A once-grand opera house that's now a scene of decaying rubble was the latest remarkable venue for Chanel's haute couture. The setting saw Karl Lagerfeld carry off a dark, expressionist-tinged fall-winter 2013 collection, but the nostalgia was only half the story of this strong show, staged inside Paris' Grand Palais.
