I couldn't resist posting a second version of this theme; its so ripe for visualization. Plus, I've been busy at work the past couple of days and the spectacle of the Chanel show was big news out of the Paris collections. Karl Lagerfeld stocked his shelves high with Chanel branded product and sent brightly colored knit track suits down the catwalk.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, misguided governments in Mexico and elsewhere, build and colorfully paint as many as 2500 houses a day (above) without thought for transportation, schools, parks or grocery stores. Not surprisingly, these ill-planned places quickly turn to blighted slums, with weeds and graffiti covered walls.
I should note that I'm not necessarily making negative commentary towards Chanel. I love clothing and earn my livelihood from cosmetics, fashion, design, etc. For the purposes of this exercise, I'm simply drawing connections between the two.
