Undoubtedly the latter!
I'm certain that the social media are heavily mined for ideas, tendencies, and trends, but the winds shift in completely different directions at high altitude, relative to what is happening down here. Things look much different when there is access to all the tools they undoubtedly have at their disposal.
Chanel wouldn't think of doing something like no. 5 Pour Homme unless their most brilliant fashion strategists thought it was a good idea. It's historic. It's colossal. You simply can't do something like that merely because a bunch of chumps like us think it would be cool. And if you do it, you do it right. No mistakes. You play for keeps, planning meticulously, to win every facet of the fight. It's an amazing challenge, IMO.
Good grief - the clothing equivalent of listening to Basenotes niche snobs on fragrance, would be doing leather hot pants with white lace suspenders as the next fashion rage for guys. Ummm - yeah - right. Maybe on Marc Jacobs, but it ain't happening at Macy's!

Thanks! See? The power of Brad Pitt is manifesting itself already!
PS - OMG, Ursula! That's perfect! Chanel no. 5 Black Pour Homme!
The flanker possibilities are endless (please don't take that seriously, Chanel!!!
